Wireless battery monitoring and on demand watering

ACCESS CONTROL GROUP (Access) introduces the SMARTIE, the world’s first Bluetooth electrolyte level and temperature sensor for flooded batteries. Prolonged periods of low water and over temperature conditions can lead batteries to perform poorly and reduce their useful life. These two conditions are recorded with date and time for warranty validation.  Also, alarm data can be easily downloaded with the free Android app. 

With information on battery issues at their fingertips users can now take timely action and make significant difference in battery fleet uptime and life. SMARTIE’s on-demand watering feature gives service providers actionable insight on when to water batteries so they can prioritize their service trips.  A rugged tablet is securely mounted in the battery charging area and provides up to the minute data and list of batteries in need of watering.  SMARTIE can send this watering report and alarm history via email to the desired stakeholders.

SMARTIE is one of several telematics solutions offered by Access.  Their end-to-end cloud platform AssetPro 360 empowers asset owners (of virtually any plant equipment) for lifecycle management and optimization.  The platform can be integrated with the clients’ ERP (such as SAP), CMMS (such as EBIS), EAM and WMS and can offer unprecedented visibility across the enterprise so informed decisions can be made, proactively. The advanced telematics technology, price-to-performance ratio, two-year warranty, and the flexibility to pay only for the functions needed offers clients compelling solutions.
