Industrial batteries are key components in power systems, but they are often not actively monitored, analysed or managed. This results in unnecessary costs, safety issues, and unsustainable use of resources.
In their mission to help companies open their battery blackbox, Bamomas partnered with Sensoan to develop wireless battery sensors that enable 24/7 remote battery data collection of majority industrial Lead-acid and Ni-Cd batteries. The introduced battery sensor model +B01 is seamlessly integrated with Bamomas remote analytics platform and features reliable industrial Wirepas Massive mesh network connectivity. The sensors collect battery pack and mid-point voltage, current, temperature, and electrolyte level data in high resolution to ensure that battery health can be proactively managed and maintained. Wireless sensors have low power consumption and they are easy and quick to install. Every +B01 is equipped with integrated memory capable of storing several months of battery data in case of wireless network failures.
Bamomas is a Finland-based tech company specialising in comprehensive battery fleet analytics solutions. They have developed solutions that help battery fleet operators understand and make sense of the battery data to optimise battery lifespan and implement predictive battery maintenance. Data collection, processing and analysis is enabled on a fleet level and down to a battery cell level, making battery use more economical and environmentally friendly. Company’s core competencies lie in in-depth AI/ML-based battery predictive analytics, battery connectivity, and remote battery monitoring.
Sensoan offers IoT engineering projects and products to its business partners and customers. They develop wireless sensor products, applications and cloud services. Sensoan’s reliable and customised IoT solutions aid in data-based decision making, and save costs by minimising downtimes, streamlining supply chains, and increasing the effectiveness in different uses.
“Bamomas' application know-how and Sensoan's product development experience of wireless systems have been a successful combination. Vectors have been pointing continuously to the same direction and targeting the competitive solution. It has been a true win-win situation”.
Kari Malmivirta, project manager at Sensoan
Bamomas sensors can be used for battery measurements in a variety of industrial applications for example, forklift battery monitoring in material handling industry, UPS battery monitoring, battery tracking in rolling stock, golf cart battery tracking, auxiliary boat battery system monitoring, etc. They are already working with many leading industrial companies to provide them with remote battery analytics by offering them a complete range of solutions including their battery sensor, remote battery analytics platform, as well as connectivity options that enable consistent and reliable transfer of important data.
Gaining visibility into battery health and performance allows timely detection of battery malfunction and misuse events. It also helps predict battery lifespan and identify premature battery ageing, maximise battery lifetime, plan maintenance, and prevent potential safety issues.
If you want to learn more about battery monitoring and analytics and how you can implement it in your own organisation then catch team Bamomas and team Sensoan at booth No. D 384 in Alihankinta fair Tampere, Finland from 27–29 September 2022.
