EnerSys® Introduces ODYSSEY® Connect Battery Monitoring System
READING, Pennsylvania, May 22, 2023 – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, has launched the ODYSSEY® Connect battery monitoring system, featuring proprietary technology to actively monitor and track a range of battery health and performance data for optimal operations. The information received through the system is then communicated via Bluetooth® to any Apple® or Android™ smart device.
“We strive to provide our customers with solutions that not only simplify operations, but also enhance productivity and performance for a lower total cost of ownership,” said Dave McMullen, Senior Director of Global Marketing, Transportation & Specialty at EnerSys. “With the addition of our ODYSSEY® Connect battery monitoring system, we are able to help deliver on our promise and give end-users more control over their vehicle power – allowing them the ability to check the health of their battery anywhere, anytime.”
The ODYSSEY® Connect system actively tracks battery State of Charge (SOC) and State of Health (SOH) by censoring voltage and temperature status through cranking and other events. With the ODYSSEY® Connect battery monitoring system, users can view warning and safety notifications directly on their smart device and can review battery trends on a 24/7 basis to spot system performance anomalies and address appropriately. Additional tracking benefits are as follows:
- State of Charge: The ODYSSEY® Connect system captures SOC data and highlights it in a graph showing 20 percent increments over a six-day period.
- State of Health: The ODYSSEY® Connect system’s SOH data is viewable by the user to proactively monitor battery health highs, lows and warnings, which may require corrective actions.
- Voltage and Temperature: The ODYSSEY® Connect system highlights the previous six days of battery voltage and temperature data in a combined graph.
- Battery History: From the first day of battery operation, the ODYSSEY® Connect system captures and analyzes battery operating parameter history.
