First rechargeable battery system directly integrating into the #IoT

Published: 31 October 2018 - Sarah Mead

At Electronica 2018 Ansmann launches the first rechargeable battery system offering GSM und GPS interfaces by default.

Ansmann AG at the Electronica 2018 welcomes designers of mobile rechargeable systems to the Internet of mobile Things #IoMT.  - 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. They are aiming at staying 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 is firstly presented by Ansmann AG at the Electronica 2018 in Munich.

Using the new Ansmann battery packs, the producers 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 functionality and the new IoT functions can be combined.

Be it a wheelchair, the battery of an e-Bike or a floor conveyer. <<Connected Mobile Power>> makes them traceable. Also 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.

Thilo Hack, Head of Industrial Solutions at Ansmann AG: “For sure, those radio based new radio-based functionalities are not only relevant for e-mobility solutions. We are already discussing solutions built on <<Connected Mobile Power>> to ensure remote control and maintenance for high-quality powertools or the surveillance of medical devices. Lastly about every mobile device could be given great new functions as well as a plus in safety and service by integrating their rechargeable batteries into the #IoMT – the Internet of mobile Things.”
