Powernet’s new ADC8000 Intelligent Charger platform is a true building block for IIOT

Powernet’s ADC8000 Intelligent Charger platform enables predictive maintenance and extensive remote monitoring

The game changing ADC8000 Product Platform makes the battery charger a sensor for data and enables extensive remote monitoring and predictive maintenance.

The ADC8000 Product Platform is a sophisticated, compact, and cost efficient battery charger with all essential monitoring and communication capabilities integrated. The proprietary software developed by Powernet monitors the State of Health (SOH) of the back-up battery as well as numerous data such as up time, down time, temperature data, run time in different temperature ranges and efficiency of use. Integrated deep discharge protection with adjustable threshold levels, temperature compensated charging and an operation temperature range of -40 to +70 °C is standard in the ADC8000 platform.

The SOH algorithms will give a reliable prediction of remaining battery life based on a continuous impedance and temperature measurement over the whole life time of the batteries, thus eliminating premature change of batteries as well as alarming the supervisory system at chosen points of remaining lifetime, eg. 6 and 3 months.

Harry Lilja, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Powernet Oy comments “Battery chargers and power supplies used to be black boxes with a led indicating everything is OK or a failure. The ADC8000 platform is a true game changer, the former black box is now a node for information and in a large distributed system it will communicate the State of Health of the battery of every node as well as numerous data to the SCADA-system. Thanks to the ADC8000 we will see many high value added applications emerging in predictive maintenance and optimization of running costs!

Berndt Schalin, CEO of Powernet Oy comments “The ADC8000 platform introduces battery chargers of distributed battery backed up systems as true building blocks of Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT). We are very excited to guide our customers into this new era of Intelligent battery charging, data logging and communication!
