Exicom partners with Hero Electric to supply Battery Management Systems.

Exicom will supply 5 lakh units of intelligent Battery Management Systems to Hero Electric per year.

Gurugram-based EV charger and lithium-ion battery manufacturer Exicom announced its partnership with Hero Electric to supply Battery Management Systems (BMS). Under this partnership, Exicom will provide Hero Electric with Intelligent BMS for its electric two-wheelers in India.

A Battery Management System monitors the battery performance and safety parameters. Exicom has built the BMS on multiple innovative technologies around remote health monitoring, multi-level safety checks to ensure that the battery operates within the safe operating area, and advanced features such as cell balancing, and proprietary SoX algorithms, which help in enhancing the range of the two-wheelers and life of battery packs.

Exicom said its BMS would allow Hero Electric to comply with the AIS-156 safety norms applicable from December 2022 and Mar 2023. Hero Electric intends to purchase 5 Lakh units of BMS per annum, given the rapid increase in demand for EVs in the country.

Commenting on this partnership, Anant Nahata, Managing Director, Exicom, said, “We are pleased to join forces with India’s first and largest electric two-wheeler brand - Hero Electric to support their mission of ecologically viable two-wheeler solutions for the country. We have been able to advance performance and safety through deeper tech integration. We are constantly working to create cutting-edge solutions that set the standard for our industry, and our intelligent BMS is a great example of this. We will continue to drive innovation in this space.”

Mr. Sohinder Singh Gill, CEO, Hero Electric, said, “BMS is the nerve centre of the electric vehicles and we are constantly evaluating its design and features along with our preferred partner Exicom to offer the safest and best-performing battery systems. Hero is a clear winner in delivering the best “Total Cost of Ownership” for its entire range of vehicles, and latest technology batteries and well-designed BMS is a great contributor to this. Our new line of modular BMS will be future-ready and not only conform to AIS 156 but also have additional higher-level layers of safety and controls that will give our batteries the highest level of performance over their entire life cycles of 1500 cycles plus. We look forward to a long and fruitful association with Exicom to achieve our mission to be the leaders in electric mobility in India.”
