Industry standards have become an important topic after Taiwan Bicycle Association (TBA) chairman Anthony Lo raised the issue of the differences in national standards of various countries involved in the supply chain of the bicycle industry at the Taiwan-China Bike Summit.

EnergyBus invites stakeholders

Bike Europe reported about Lo’s announcement to get the Asian industry more involved in the standardization process. The statement is welcomed by the IEC/ISO standardization group for light electric vehicles (LEVs). Following this report EnergyBus invites everybody to participate in the Workshop or Technical Training at Taipei Cycle 2014.

EnergyBus is an open standard for communication between electric components of Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs) and further energy management systems. An IEC/ISO pre-standard based on the CANopen 454/EnergyBus protocol and the EnergyBus connector is expected to be published in summer 2014.

Combining interfaces safely

The objective of the EnergyBus Standard is safe energy management with standardised interfaces. With the CiA 454 CANopen Application Profile/EnergyBus Protocol, only compatible systems can become active. This means safety for the end user and also for dealers and system manufacturers.
