foxBMS 2 version 1.5.1 available

We are happy to announce that the bugfix release of foxBMS 2 version 1.5.1 is available on GitHub.

This is a maintenance release to overcome the issue of creating the development environment (please see conda environment no longer installable). The development environment should now install without any issues. For updating the development environment please refer to the documentation.

We have furthermore increased the stack size of the AFE-task in order to support a larger number of AFEs in the daisy chain (the actually usable number of AFE is still dependent on the exact AFE and the actually needed stack size needs to be evaluated in the requirements phase of the project).

For a detailed list of changes in foxBMS 2 version 1.5.1, please refer to our changelog.

We publish major software releases for our open source BMS platform every 3 to 6 months and interim bug fixes when solved in the News section. By subscribing to the foxBMS Newsletter, you will be informed when the new releases are available. Further, the foxBMS Roadmap and the Documentation are also updated regularly.

Warning: The foxBMS 2 platform including the foxBMS 2 hardware and the foxBMS 2 software are under permanent development. The free and open research and development platform foxBMS 2 as presented in the documentation hereafter is not provided to be used without any adaptions (e.g., to fulfill mandatory regulations) in consumer products, electric vehicles, production environments or any similar usages: the open source version of the foxBMS 2 platform is only intended to be used by skilled professionals trained in designing battery system prototypes.
