Battery Pack And Method Of Operation Therefor


A battery pack and methods of operating the same are provided. The battery pack includes a battery, at least one sensor configured to read battery operation data, an external connection port, and a battery management system. The battery management system is coupled to the external and stores machine-executable instructions that, when executed, cause the battery management system to communicate battery operation data collected from the battery to an external load.

Method Of Powering High Frequency Tool And High Frequency Power Pack Therefore


The method of electrically powering a high frequency tool with a battery pack having a DC electrical output can include stepping up the battery pack DC electrical output to a high voltage DC output of above 200V; converting the high voltage DC output to 3 phase alternating current; and powering the high frequency tool using the 3 phase alternating current.
