The first EnergyBus workshop of the year was held in Hsinchu, Taiwan today. The event was held in the ITRI Institute and was open to all interested parties.
The year 2010 will be a busy one for EnergyBus e.V. The first event of the year, organized in Hsinchu, Taiwan in the run-up to the Taipei Cycle Show, gave an overview of the state of the technology and of the organization EnergyBus.
Plug set completed
The EnergyBus organization has been working on a uniform plug set for LEVs since 2007. Three years after the organization was established, it can now exhibit the first products with the EnergyBus plug on the Taipei Cycle Show. The plug was developed by Rosenberger and can also be ordered from them.
The plug set is based on the CAN Protocol. Version 1.0 of the Communication Protocol will be completed in cooperation with the CiA (Can in Automation) later in March. It will ensure that the individual components of the LEV can "communicate" with each other. The advantage of standardization is more than just higher safety - it also promises increased efficiency and higher growth in the LEV industry.
Political decisionmakers have stepped up their efforts to accommodate e-mobility in infrastructure projects. In turn, this has brought the issue of the standardization of systems to the fore. Public charger systems need standardized plug systems with uniform communication methods. Only then can clients re-charge their pedelec and e-bike batteries at any electric recharging station safely and with the appropriate charge.
