Solidica Awarded 2008 Best of Sensors Expo Honor for Breakthrough Battery Health Monitor

Battery-agnostic smart module combines integrated monitoring, prognostics &

wireless communication flexibility

ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third consecutive year, Solidica, Inc. is awarded Sensors Magazine's prestigious "Best of Sensors Expo Award" for product innovation and leadership. This year's Silver honor recognized Solidica's flagship battery health monitor: the Solo Volt(TM) Battery Health & Prognostics Module. The Magazine's editors select the Award recipients based on their uniqueness, utility, and potential to impact change in the marketplace.

Ideal for battery-reliant applications in harsh environments, the Solo Volt(TM) Battery Health Monitor measures voltage, current, temperature, State of Charge, and life remaining on individual batteries -- or sets of batteries -- ranging from 3V to 40V each. With a powerful battery monitoring and prognostics algorithm, each module is uniquely capable of monitoring multiple batteries simultaneously, while operating in ultra-low power consumption mode. Additionally, the battery-agnostic design makes the Solo Volt(TM) compatible with multiple battery types (lead-acid, NiMH, etc.) -- disposable and/or rechargeable, single or multiple cells -- from nearly any manufacturer, and for use in mobile and stationary applications alike.

Aside from the compatibility with an ample range of battery voltages, types and manufacturers, the versatile design includes direct communication and data integration with vehicle networks through multiple standard protocols, including J1939 CAN and J1708/1587. Resettable fuses, built-in power supply, and optional functions and wireless communication capabilities round off the award-winning product.

"We have engineered a new level of system compatibility and feature set to meet the demands of a variety of customers with converging requirements, many of whom have interdependent battery-powered systems and data management needs," stated Rick Fortson, Vice President - New Product Development. "The Solo Volt(TM) provides a combined answer to these existing application challenges and many other needs that await the future mobile and distributed mesh energy management landscape." The configurable and adaptable nature of the module's design have made it highly suitable for monitoring harsh environment power systems such as ground vehicles, marine vessels, disaster relief generators and asset management applications, to name a few.

The installation of Solo Volt(TM) as embedded modules in demanding market applications -- including military vehicles -- has further validated the positive impact of such versatile, comprehensive monitoring for next-generation data aggregation, analysis and reporting. "The rising demand for energy-efficient, battery-powered systems requires comprehensive, adaptive monitoring with agile data communication capabilities," says Jeff Jorge, Solidica's Director of Global Market Development. "Operational uptime, enhanced system health management, secure data distribution and environmental impact reduction are a few of the key reasons why the Solo Volt(TM) has resonated well with military and commercial customers alike."

Solidica's Pantheon(TM) system -- which includes the Chorus(TM) Diagnostics & Telematics Module -- has also received the Expo's highest honor in 2006 and 2007, due in part to its ability to quickly and affordably upgrade mobile or stationary platforms into integrated data and remote communication systems. This year's award was presented during the 2008 Sensors Expo, held June 9-11 in Rosemont, IL.
