Energy management: Volta Power Systems announced a partnership with Auto Meter Products on an innovative lithium ion battery state of charge display system. The programmable Auto Meter instrument displays total available energy in Volta's turn-key lithium ion power systems while offering customer specific, customizable warning thresholds and diagnostic code. Auto Meter has provided instrumentation to virtually every racing class and major OEM customers for sixty years.
"Our products are user friendly, reliable and consistent, and the new Auto Meter instrument system will help maintain that standard," said Jack Johnson, co-founder of Volta.
Volta uses tested, automotive-grade lithium ion technology to provide more energy with less noise, space, weight, and charging time than traditional methods. These innovative energy systems are designed for recreational vehicles, marine applications and specialty commercial vehicles like bucket trucks. Volta will mount their Auto Meter SOC display system on the system junction box for convenience and ease of use for end users and maintenance technicians.
"Voltas State of Charge display instrument gauge system Auto Meter designed for Volta has a variety of programmable colors and variable flash rate settings," said Brett Littlefield, director of sales at Auto Meter. "The gauges offer Volta customers options to incorporate into their design features."
In addition to programing options, this new instrument system provides color coded energy level indicators and a comprehensive message center for end users. The display systems were thoroughly tested on current models and will debut on Liberty Coach models later this month. Volta plans to use the gauges on current and future products.
