Greek battery maker Sunlight Group Energy Storage Systems has launched a cloud-based lead-acid Battery Monitoring System (BMS).
KnoWi is the market’s most advanced BMS for motive power lead-acid batteries. It’s designed to help improve the management and performance of both batteries and forklifts. The BMS offers Wi-Fi and GSM connectivity to ensure constant monitoring and recording of real-time performance data that maximizes efficiency without extra equipment such as like hubs or gateways. The move is part of Sunlight’s transition to lithium battery technology.
KnoWi helps users prolong the lifespan of Sunlight batteries, while also using clean data collection to improve forklift management and promote efficient power use for large-scale fleets. The BMS is supported by an easy-to-use digital dashboard, displaying data that is automatically captured and uploaded in Sunlight’s Cloud platform, GLocal. The platform records, in real-time, key parameters regarding the operation of the battery. And thus, it facilitates optimal downtime and maintenance, reducing cost.
In addition, KnoWi’s advanced technological features also use AI and Machine Learning tools to make recommendations for even more innovative power storage solutions, based on battery and forklift profiles that record data on usage and power consumption. The collected information is aggregated and processed by a special calculator that suggests the most suitable Sunlight lithium battery replacement for any type of use.
“KnoWi will empower our customers to make informed choices about their power solutions, both today and in the future,” said Ioanna Gavrielatou, marketing director at Sunlight. “Our commitment to improving product efficiency and quality is at the heart of our lithium-focused R&D activity, which enables us to deliver industry firsts – such as the KnoWi onboard monitoring system and the GLocal Cloud platform. Such products and applications reflect our transformation into a fully technology-agnostic company.”
