ANSMANN AG is launching the first rechargeable battery system offering GSM and GPS interfaces by default at electronica 2018. While the users of e-scooters, e-bikes and other e-mobility solutions get used to enjoying the use of apps, professional fleet operators and producers of high-value e-vehicles are already looking for more sophisticated solutions, which allow them to stay connected with their vehicles directly – seamlessly and globally. The long-year experts for mobile energy of ANSMANN Industrial Solutions therefore have developed a rechargeable system including a GSM-module and a GPS tracker. This “Connected Mobile Power” – system will first-time be presented by ANSMANN AG at the electronica 2018 in Munich.
Using the connected ANSMANN battery packs, the designers of electric vehicles by standard get all the interfaces they need for tracking, security features and remote maintenance via mobile networks and IoT – without any app needed in between. If necessary to achieve certain user services, Bluetooth app intelligence functionality launched by ANSMANN two years ago and the new IoT connective functions are compatible.
Thilo Hack, head of Industrial Solutions at ANSMANN AG: “For sure, those radio based new functionalities are not only relevant for e-mobility solutions. We are already discussing solutions based on ‘Connected Mobile Power’ to ensure remote control and maintenance for high-quality powertools or the surveillance of medical devices.”
Be it a wheelchair, the battery of an e-Bike or a floor conveyer. ‘Connected Mobile Power’ makes them traceable wherever they got lost. And critical industrial or security devices can be kept under remote surveillance and maintenance. Lastly about every mobile device can gain new functions as well as a plus in safety and service by integrating their rechargeable batteries into the #IoMT – the Internet of Mobile Things.
When requested by specifications, ANSMANN “Intelligent Battery” technology for the implementation of apps in rechargeable systems can be used on top same time without compromise. For a few euros additional costs per battery data such as battery charge level, battery temperature, manufacture date, serial number, charge and discharge cycles, charging current, status warnings or remaining actual range can still be send to the displays of special devices or mobile phones via Bluetooth. Values and data can be displayed in the form of an oscillography without any measurement set-up. Graphs for the load pattern of the battery, for example, can be traced in live-mode as standard.
