SimpliPhi Power announced its PHI batteries have completed UL 9540A fire-safety testing protocols, and its AccESS, BOSS.6 and BOSS.12 integrated systems are UL 9540 certified.
“As we continue to uphold SimpliPhi Power’s core values of protecting our planet and empowering people, it is critical that the energy storage solutions we provide to foster economic recovery and a sustainable future are 100% safe,” said Catherine Von Burg, CEO and President of SimpliPhi Power. “Although we [completed] UL 9540A PHI battery module fire-safety testing as of June 2021, we weren’t satisfied with only module level testing. We wanted to demonstrate that our larger, integrated solutions are both safe and reliable, which is important for customers, installers and project developers given that these test results are being used by fire departments and AHJs from a code, compliance, and permitting perspective.”
SimpliPhi Power’s performance during the UL 9540A testing, in which the cell, battery and unit level equipment were forced into thermal runaway by heaters built into the batteries, demonstrated limited cell to cell propagation, decreasing temperatures, no ignition or fire and no explosive or deflagration events.
SimpliPhi products, manufactured in California, have over a decade of demonstrated safety and performance due to their proprietary manufacturing processes, materials and inherently safe chemistry. SimpliPhi’s product line is based on the superior lithium-ferro phosphate (LFP) chemistry.
“Safety and transparency by battery manufacturers are critical to the growth of the energy storage market,” Von Burg said. “SimpliPhi will continue to demonstrate our commitment to advancing the energy storage market by publicly releasing our UL 9540A test results to set a standard of transparency concerning issues around performance and public safety.”
SimpliPhi’s entire line of UL 9540-certified and UL 9540A fire safety tested integrated energy storage and management systems are available through the company’s distributor network, as well as the Briggs & Stratton Dealer network.
