WINNER: Split-second cut in voltage flow when needed
Joyson Safety Systems
WHAT: Pyrotechnic battery disconnect for electric and hybrid-electric vehicles
INNOVATION: Joyson’s small, low-cost, lightweight battery-disconnect device can stop the high-voltage flow from an EV or hybrid battery to surrounding systems in less than 1 millisecond. The device uses a proprietary solution to safely manage the resulting plasma arc generated from severing power in excess of 460 volts. It protects occupants and first responders from electrocution after a crash, prevents power surges to other vehicle electronics and mitigates the risk of a runaway battery thermal fire.
