Batter Temperature Sensor

• The battery temperature sensor is built into the battery current sensor.

• The battery characteristic (battery internal resistance) of taking in current for charging varies according to battery electrolyte temperature. If the electrolyte temperature is too low or too high, the battery internal resistance will increase, resulting in early deterioration. To prevent this, the battery temperature sensor changes its resistance as shown below to detect the temperature.
