Title: CONTROL UNIT FOR A BATTERY SYSTEM
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a control unit (10) for a battery system (100), comprising a power input (11) for an operation voltage of the control unit (10) provided by at least one battery cell (80); a control module (13) configured for performing at least control function with respect to the at least one battery cell (80); and a startup module (12) connected between the power input (11) and the control module (13). According to the present invention, the startup module comprises: a data input (14) configured for receiving an activation key; a non-volatile memory element (15) storing a security identifier; a verification circuit (16) connected to the data input (14) and to the non-volatile memory element (15) and configured for validating an input activation key with respect to the security identifier; and an activation circuit (17) connected to the verification circuit (16) and configured for interconnecting the power input (11) and the control module (13) in response to the validation of the activation key. The present invention further relates to a battery system (100) comprising a control unit (10) according to the invention and to a startup method of a control unit (10) for a battery system (100).
