Intelligent electric bike battery secured by Camlock Systems
19 November 2012
VARTA Microbattery pedelec batteries require a stable construction for leisure and professional use. The company decided to secure its batteries for some designs using pushlocks manufactured by Camlock Systems.
VARTA Microbattery GmbH is a leading European manufacturer of retail and OEM batteries, which are used in a wide range of applications, including automotive, computers, mobile phones and medical equipment.
Another business area is the CellPac BIKE service which produces batteries for pedelecs (electric bikes) fitted with a lightweight battery, using lithium-ion rechargeable cells.
The battery compartment is secured with Camlock’s 3015 pushlock. The six disk tumbler lock provides good security, having a push-to-lock action, a 45º locking movement and a user-friendly double entry key trapped in the unlocked position. This last feature ensures that the key cannot be lost while the battery compartment is open. A sprung horseshoe clip also helps VARTA to achieve fast mounting.
Alex Stapleton, Product Manager at VARTA, says: “When we first started the project, we were looking for a suitable lock from a supplier who could be a helpful and supporting partner. Camlock Systems was able to fulfil these needs.”
