After many years of development and extensive field tests with selected partners in professional motorsport, we now offer our proven LITE↯BLOX product series as a special version for strictly racing applications.
The technology-leading LITE↯BLOX LBM accumulator series has been developed in close cooperation with a large semiconductor company to fit automotive standards and comes with an additional DEUTSCH Autosport connector including motorsport harness by DC electronics, enabling full integration into the vehicle’s CAN-bus system.
Using state-of-the-art semiconductor elements coupled with a powerful microprocessor, the LITE↯BLOX LBM provides comprehensive & accurate telemetry recording (current, voltage, temperature) over the entire race distance, supporting fault diagnosis in the vehicle periphery – either via CAN bus or integrated wireless interface (smartphone / tablet).
The LITE↯BLOX LBM replaces the standard car battery plus the common “Solid State Relay” battery isolator module (CARTEK, ARMTECH, etc) at a fraction of the installation cost and has been tested along with the FIA for use in professional motorsport.
The scope of delivery also includes a wiring harness with two buttons (IP67), which can be used to switch off the battery inside of the vehicle or by the marshal from outside.
The LITE↯BLOX LBM comes as a derivative of the current product series, tested & fully built by hand at our manufactury in Germany and is now available through our online shop as a variant of all three existing models LB13XX / LB19XX / LB26XX (lead time 14 working days).
We are happy to annouce, that after extensive development with selected partners in OE industry and motorsport, today the first pre-production models of our new LITE↯BLOX derivative for professional racing were sent to selected test customers in Germany.
The LBM HIGH PERFORMANCE ACCUMULATOR will be available from March and comes with an integrated solid state relay / battery isolator (FIA kill switch), as well as a comprehensive telemetry connection via CAN (motorsport) & LIN (OE) – Made In Germany.
We wish all LITE↯BLOX partners, customers, fans & friends a skid free start into 2019!
We would like to thank the young up-and-coming motor sportsmen of the #FormulaStudent Team RUB Motorsport for the great cooperation in the past season.
The LITE↯BLOX LB19XX model is used here as the only power source in the vehicle and has always worked reliably:
“One of the most important decisions in the introduction of the lightweight construction concept in 2016 was the renunciation of an electric generator to bring even more engine power to the road. However, since many essential systems in the race car must be supplied with power, accordingly high demands are placed on the battery: This must ensure a complete Endurance race in the Formula Student that the power supply does not break – this would be the end of the race for us mean.
Since 2017, we have found a reliable solution that has never left us in the lurch: The LITEBLOX has more than sufficient capacity and a very low weight and fits perfectly into our concept. With the latest generation of this battery, we can even check the individual cell voltages directly by app – on the racetrack a very useful tool!”
