Safety, control and optimised logistics for hazardous goods

measX GmbH & Co. KG on behalf of a motor manufacturer

Deep discharge, overcharging and mechanical damage can cause spontaneous combustion of lithium-ion batteries. An IoT system was developed for a manufacturer of drive systems, which continuously monitors high-performance batteries centrally during transport and storage.

For the required use in remote and hardly accessible places and transport routes, self-sufficient devices are available on smartNANO-base the first choice. They record data on the position and location of the batteries, their state of charge as well as temperatures and vibrations. To save energy and extend the service life of the device battery, data is transmitted to the optiCLOUD after longer time intervals or if sensor data have changed significantly, for example due to movement.

All status information is available via the optiCLOUD accessible at any time, regardless of location. If defined limit values are exceeded, the plant fire brigade is automatically alerted.

"The autarkic devices of optiMEAS could be easily adapted to all project requirements. Our customer was particularly impressed by the integrated energy saving concept".
