Electro-mobility: Light electric vehicles (LEV)
Both nonprofit organizations have released the first parts of the CiA 454 CANopen application profile for energy management systems. Mid of March, the specification in draft standard proposal status has been launched at the LEV conference in Taiwan. At this event, Electragil from Switzerland presented the first Impulse Pedelec prototype featuring a CiA 454 compliant control network. It interconnects the EB master, the motor and the pedal sensor from Electragil, the batteries from TD HiTech Energy, the battery charger from Panasonic, and the display from Acewell. It is intended to broaden the specification to other applications also requiring an energy management system. The pre-work done in the UESP project by the Fraunhofer institute will be included into the next version of the CiA 454 profile. This could be used for example in stand-alone photovoltaic systems with battery backup.
