Eberspaecher has unveiled a new Xellstor energy management system. The modular system consists of one to four Xellstor lithium-ion batteries, or power units, and a Smart Hub control system
The system provides RVers with comfort and self-sufficiency while traveling, Eberspaecher said. The system will be available to North American customers but not until at least the second half of 2023.
The batteries can be charged via shore power, generator or solar panels. Each battery weighs approximately 44 pounds and has an energy storage capacity of 2.1 kWh yielding a maximum system capacity of 8.4 kWh. Depending on the available space, the modules can be mounted anywhere.
The Smart Hub is Xellstor’s intelligent control system. Smart Hub links all installed batteries and can be connected to a generator, a power grid or to solar panels. The hub coordinates a variety of energy-consuming RV devices.
The Smart Hub’s intelligent energy management controls optimal charging and discharging of the batteries as well as energy supply prioritization when the charge level decreases.
Consumers can monitor the status of the batteries via an Eberspaecher power app.
