Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), announced a partnership with Cleantron that provides a turnkey, end-to-end solution for optimizing the performance and cycle-life of Cleantron’s battery packs. The partnership is the latest example of how Telit enables solution providers in any vertical—including security, agriculture, retail, health care and more—to quickly and cost-effectively leverage IoT to optimize and differentiate their products and services.
Cleantron’s new connected battery pack solution provides remote monitoring of the battery’s health, temperature, voltage, current and state of charge data, which are critical for maximizing performance and cycle-life. Users also can track each battery’s location, providing additional key insights into the status of high-value mobile/portable assets such as medical equipment, Industry 4.0 equipment and light electric vehicles.
Cleantron is using Telit solutions for its P4 Battery Pack—designed for use in light electric vehicles and industrial applications—with the potential for expanding them across its entire portfolio. The solution is based on ME910C1-WW and Telit OneEdge:
- The ME910C1-WW is a 3GPP Release 13 LTE Category M1/NB1 module, based on the Qualcomm® MDM9206 LTE IoT Modem from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., that can be used worldwide. The ME910C1-WW also has power saving mode (PSM) and extended discontinuous reception (eDRX) to maximize battery life.
- OneEdge is the award-winning, module-integrated software and services with pre-packaged, secure, easy-to-use deployment and management tools. OneEdge enables zero touch on-boarding, security built in at the point of manufacture, SIM-less cellular subscription management, simplified enterprise integration and more. With OneEdge, Telit simplifies all aspects of IoT implementation by saving time and cost, reducing risk and speeding time to revenue by easing deployment. OneEdge-based manufactured products such as the ME910C1 and others have a ready-to-go connection to the Telit IoT platform to manage devices, connectivity and application data to deliver the ultimate value in IoT. Telit’s OneEdge solves the long-standing challenges related to integration, scalability, management and costs that system architects and their enterprise customers face as they implement IoT to transform their businesses.
“When businesses want to harness the power of IoT, they turn to Telit,” said Alon Segal, Senior Vice President, Software & Services, Telit. “Cleantron is a prime example of Telit’s ability to provide all of the software, services and devices that a business needs to quickly and cost-effectively implement IoT.”
“Our partnership with Telit means that Cleantron customers can now get the real-time data they need to maximize the performance and cycle-life of the batteries that their vehicles, AGV’s or other valuable equipment they depend on,” said Maarten Kelder, CTO of Cleantron. “Telit is the ideal choice because it provides everything we need—modules, cellular service and all of the tools—saving us time and money versus building our connected battery pack solution in house from scratch.”
Telit is a global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) enablement, with an extensive portfolio of wireless connectivity modules, platforms, virtual cellular IoT operator services, and professional services, empowering hundreds of millions of connected ‘things’ to date, and trusted by thousands of direct and indirect customers, globally. With nearly two decades of IoT innovation experience, Telit continues to redefine the boundaries of digital business, by delivering secure, integrated end-to-end IoT solutions for many of the world’s largest brands, including enterprises, OEMs, system integrators and service providers across all industries, enabling their pursuit of enterprise digital transformation.
