PowerTech Systems has obtained ISO 9001 quality certification from the AFNOR certification body.
This certification validates the implementation and application of organized and structured internal processes. It also endorses the implementation of an effective quality policy and the implementation of a continuous improvement strategy.
This is an important milestone in the company’s growth and once again demonstrates our commitment to continuously improve our products and services to satisfy our customers and partners.
PowerTech is pleased to announce the launch of the new version of the PowerModule modular battery system. This product completes the PowerRack range for medium to high power applications.
The design of the product has been engineered to reduce space requirements and facilitate integration. The vertical and horizontal assembly of the modules allows a large number of combinations and meets a maximum of needs (Vehicles, marine, industrial machinery, rail, robotics, etc.)
Watch a one minute video presentation of new PowerModule :
This new version brings its share of new features:
“Plug-and-Play” and flexible system : Easy and fast commissioning
Scalable system : Serial and/or Parallel assembly up to 128 modules to fullfill the most complex appplications
Embedded Cell heating system for sub 0°C operations
Stainless steel housing with waterproof connection (IP67)
Inaugurated in September 2019, the Fludis boat is equipped with PowerTech’s PowerRack Lithium battery system, allowing it to sail 100% electrically in the centre of Paris.
This sustainable urban logistics project is a solution to the difficulties encountered by urban freight transport operators, by offering a warehouse boat capable of handling the stages of route preparation, hosting logistics teams, as well as transporting the bicycle-cargoes used for the last kilometer.
Thanks to the rational use of this “warehouse vessel”, and its independence from loading / unloading infrastructures on the quayside, and the dimensions compatible with the canals, the system can be adapted to each agglomeration crossed by a navigable waterway.
The Fludis boat has been designed to have the lowest possible environmental impact: 100% electric propulsion with batteries. The boat also has a generator onboard to extand the range and to remain autonomous where grid is not available. At the port of Gennevilliers, it can be connected to electricity at the quayside. Consumption is estimated at 70 litres of off-road diesel per day for the trip between Gennevilliers and Paris.
The firm IKEA will benefit from this new type of boat. The Swedish company had opened a depot in February in the port of Gennevilliers to get closer to the capital. Cargo bicycles, which can carry up to 250 kg, will deliver to customers in the central districts (from the 1st to the 7th arrondissements). “30% of orders can be processed,” Ikea explains.
As a reminder, all our products now use the new generation cell which ensures a better service life (3000 cycles at 100% DoD at 1C, 4500 cycles at 80% DoD at 1C) and an increased energy density of +25%. The PowerBrick 12V-30Ah makes its entry using the PowerBrick 12V-20Ah enclosure, i. e. an energy density increased by +50% in the same enclosure The PowerBrick 12V-45Ah complements the 12V-40Ah version by using the same box (+12.5% more energy) PowerBrick 12V-70Ah uses the same housing as the PowerBrick 12V-55Ah (+27% more energy) Ditto for the PowerBrick 48V-72Ah which takes over the case of the 48V-61Ah version (+18% more capacity)
All previous ranges are preserved, and all now equipped with our new generation cell.
