March 18, 2021 kumkeo develops lithium-ion (LFP) battery system for wind energy
kumkeo developed the “pitchsafe” battery system for use in megawatt wind power facilities. This allows the pitch drives to move the rotor blades into a safe position in the event of an emergency. What’s so special about this system? It is based on lithium-ion (LFP) battery technology, which offers several advantages when compared to the formerly used lead batteries. This upgrade is relatively uncomplicated and flexible.
January 19, 2021 kumkeo develops a new protocol converter
kumkeo is developing another protocol converter based on the “kuBusBox” platform. EnDat 2.2 PROFINET/PROFIsafe supplies data from up to two sensors or actuators received using EnDat 2.2 to a PROFINET IO Controller via PROFINET and PROFIsafe. It will be available starting in March 2021.
September 4, 2020: kumkeo develops products
Since 2018, kumkeo has been promoting the development of its own products for measurement and control technology. Our high-performance “kuBusBox”, a scalable protocol converter platform, provides the basis for us to design protocol converters for a wide range of different applications – with short development cycles.
We also used this platform as the foundation for creating our Battery Management System (BMS). kumkeo can deliver scalable, customized BMS with battery balancers and battery packs.
Further derivations of the kuBusBox are currently under development.
