BRIGGS & STRATTON® BRINGS INTEGRATED ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM TO MARKET
MILWAUKEE, June 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Briggs & Stratton Energy Solutions is excited to announce the release of its SimpliPHI Energy Storage System (ESS): an integrated, scalable solution with proprietary hardware and software designed to empower customers to store, manage and control energy from multiple generation sources to achieve critical power security and daily cost savings. Named after SimpliPhi Power, Inc. (SimpliPhi Power) — the California-based manufacturer of energy storage systems acquired by Briggs & Stratton, LLC in 2021 — the all-new integrated ESS comes as an answer to the rising demand for access to reliable, safe and affordable energy serving both residential and commercial markets.
The system’s state-of-the-art technology achieves seamless integration with three core components: a 6 kW SimpliPHI Inverter, a 4.9 kWh Battery and EnergyTrak™ management software. The heart of the system is the new 6 kW SimpliPHI Inverter with integrated MPPT for solar or utility charging in either DC coupled or retrofit AC coupled systems. The SimpliPHI Inverter works seamlessly with batteries to deliver an efficient, easy-to-use experience for home and business owners. It also offers exceptional flexibility, making it ideal for those looking for backup power to subsidize utility costs or to run a power system completely off-grid. When the grid fails, the risk of power surges, flickering lights and damage to sensitive equipment is eliminated with the inverter’s 8-millisecond switchover time. The SimpliPHI Inverter can scale from one to nine units in any installation, creating redundancy and cost-effective increments of 6 kW to size power output to specific electrical loads.
Leveraging a decade of innovation and performance in energy storage, the SimpliPHI ESS offers an all-new 4.9 kWh Battery utilizing Lithium Ferro Phosphate (LFP) chemistry, further enhanced by a robust Battery Management System (BMS) with closed-loop communications that logically integrates with the 6 kW Inverter and EnergyTrack management software. The SimpliPHI 4.9 Battery delivers advanced-level power storage that runs cooler and has a longer cycle life and broader operating temperature range that eliminates the risk of thermal runaway. The SimpliPHI 4.9 Battery can scale from one module up to 72, for a total energy storage capacity of 358.5 kWh. Both the SimpliPHI Inverter and Battery are IP65 rated so they can be installed indoors or outdoors.
Finally, the SimpliPHI ESS features EnergyTrak, a monitoring and control software platform which allows users to manage their energy usage through a sophisticated mobile app that delivers real-time status and updates to home and business owners. The EnergyTrak mobile app seamlessly and intelligently integrates the SimpliPHI ESS 6 kW Inverter and 4.9 Battery at any scale in any combination to help optimize performance, accelerate utility savings and create energy security for customers.
