LAUNCH OF WALL MOUNT AND POWER SAVER FOR MOBILE SMART HOME

May 2024

[Stockholm, May 17th] – Most of our products can be controlled and provide information via Bluetooth and the Multi Connect app. The app is smarter than others because you can manage multiple boats and motorhomes and choose which one you want to work with. At the same time, batteries and solar panels can be grouped and share information. Thanks to the latest update (as always, at no extra cost), you can now also control and receive the same information via the internet. We call this Mobile Smart Home. No major additional purchases are necessary; you can use an old tablet and mount it on the wall or the dashboard. Connect the tablet to the internet (a SIM card is preferred) and enable the function in the app. You and your family can then view and control all the information you normally get on your phone, even remotely. A personal login for viewing statistics will also be available soon.

Benefits of Mobile Smart Home:

– Available through a free software update.
– Modern control center on the wall.
– The whole family receives information directly to their mobile phones, both locally and via the internet.
– Personal login to the statistics page on the web.

We are now launching two products in our Mobile Smart Home series.

– A universal mount that fits most tablets.
– A motion sensor that turns off the screen when no one is nearby.

1. Magnet Wall Mount

An almost invisible wall mount with a magnet. Used together with the SUNBEAMsystem Multi Connect app. The result is a wall-integrated control center that is not only super practical but also gives a modern feel.

– Universal magnetic mount: Easily attach your tablet to the wall with pre-cut 3M tape.
– Robust Mag-Mount system: Designed to resist movement, ensuring your tablet stays in place in all conditions. The tablet can be easily detached for maintenance.
– Recessed USB-C cable: A USB-C cable designed for modern tablets. It runs through a hole behind the mount or along the wall if needed.
– Universal fit: Suitable for all tablet sizes; the mounts can be adjusted to not obstruct tablet functions such as volume buttons. The charging port can be adapted to any side of the tablet.

2. Smart Screen Power Saver

Uses a motion sensor with PIR technology to accurately detect human presence, ensuring your screen only turns on when needed. It integrates seamlessly with your central screen. The experience is an always-on instrument while significantly reducing energy consumption. With the screen off, the power consumption of most tablets drops to only 0.3-0.5 watts, comparable to standard instrument panels.

LAUNCH OF AN AFFORDABLE LITHIUM BATTERY - SUNBEAMSYSTEM PRISMATIC

May 2024

[Stockholm, May 16th] – Lithium batteries are no longer just for early adopters; most people would prefer them if they could afford them. Due to popular demand, SUNBEAMsystem is now launching an affordable battery. To achieve this, we use the very common prismatic cells. Prismatic cells have become somewhat of an industry standard, with a reasonable price and performance that is “good enough.” This is, of course, a step down from the batteries with cylindrical cells in steel casings that SUNBEAMsystem traditionally builds, but many are looking for something more budget-friendly. SUNBEAMsystem Smart Lithium Prismatic has also inherited the gentleness towards the generator from its big brother Plug&Play series, as well as real-time monitoring both locally and via the internet.

Choice of Battery Cells: Cylindrical, Prismatic, and “Pouch” Cells

– Cylindrical Cells: A battery with cylindrical cells offers the best possible performance, long lifespan, and complete safety. SUNBEAMsystem also bolts the cylindrical cells into a stainless steel casing, providing an incredibly safe and future-proof construction. 

– Prismatic Cells: Prismatic cells experience more wear during use and swell when misused. The rectangular shape makes battery packs more compact, but heat dissipation becomes a problem. With normal or careful use where the battery is not subjected to too much vibration and has a relatively low charge and discharge rate, prismatic cells are an economical alternative. 

– “Pouch” Cells: These cells are the cheapest option, but few manufacturers of batteries for boats and motorhomes choose these. The active parts of a cell are wrapped in an aluminum pouch, making them both lightweight and compact. However, they are less suitable for boats as they swell by at least 10% after 500 charges, and a puncture can lead to disaster. Cooling is a challenge, and worn cells can suffer from “hot spots.” 

SUNBEAMsystem SMART LITHIUM Prismatic 

  • This affordable battery uses prismatic cells, but we have not cut corners on anything else. The battery’s internal structure is of the highest SUNBEAMsystem standard, with components that exceed industry standards: sensor cables, high-current cables, connections, cell mountings, and our very special BMS inherited from our Plug&Play batteries. 

     

    As a SUNBEAMsystem battery, you also get access to real-time monitoring and control both locally (Bluetooth) and via the internet (requires a tablet as a central screen).

SUNBEAMsystem Smart Lithium Plug & Play - 3rd Generation

Mar 2023

World Premiere of the 3rd generation Smart Lithium Plug & Play

Now we launch the 3rd generation of our Plug&Play series with even higher capacity density and performance. As a part of the Smart Mobile Home family, you may benefit from never-ending high-tech advantages.

With 8% higher energy density  

The new Plug & Play ONE battery features 108Ah for a 12V system. Which is 8% more capacity in the same casing with the same weight. With its astounding specifications, it is really one of a kind, but the name is meant to indicate that it is the premier choice for anyone in need of just a single battery.

The new Plug & Play Multi battery also features 108Ah @ 12V. Also available for a 24V system with the same capacity of 54Ah@24V. The Multi is optimized to be used in the domestic bank with 2 or more batteries.

Plug & Play are still unique as they offer a true and effortless upgrade from old-style batteries. Thanks to advanced electronics, anyone, anywhere may simply remove their old, outdated batteries and slip in their new plug & play batteries.
The safety level is unrivaled – in 2023 you may not find safer energy storage for your boat. This is thanks to the three independent safety aspects of a Smart Lithium battery.

Firstly, the chemistry is inert which means no run-aways can take place in other types of lithium chemistry batteries. You may punch holes, crush or put it in a fire and despite this nothing will happen.

Secondly, the cell casing which is made of metal and could potentially act badly if there was a sudden heat up (for example throw it in a bonfire) – but thanks to the security valves which will open in such case this potential problem is not existent any longer. Thirdly the computer-guided control system offers a plethora of protections keeping the battery out of harm’s way.

The Smart Lithium batteries are a part of our Smart Mobile Home with never-ending free upgrades. Don’t forget that you may upgrade your instrument panel by simply putting a tablet on the wall and downloading our free App, SUNBEAMsystem Multi Connect.

 

The Plug & Play remains steadfast using our advanced bolted cylindrical cells. No tabs, no welding nor soldering that causes resistance or might even come loose. The bolting ensures heavy-duty usage without affecting the life expectancy or limiting the battery. The choice of cylindrical cells uses slightly more volume compared to prismatic cells, but it is the only choice to be able to maintain high performance and long-life expectancy at the same time. We are proud of our cells and for example, you may read a lot about how Tesla is struggling in their transition from 2170 cells into the newer tab less 4680. We already took the step from the smaller cells into our 3270 (tab less) cells many years ago.  

SUNBEAMsystem Smart Lithium Plug & Play

Mar 2023

Världspremiär för 3:e generationens Smart Lithium Plug&Play med 8 % högre effekttäthet.

Nu lanserar vi den 3:e generationen av vår Plug&Play-serie med ännu högre kapacitet och prestanda. Som en del av Smart Mobile Home-familjen får du fria uppdateringar och möjlighet till att montera en padda på instrumentpanelen samt dela information till hela familjens telefoner. 

Med 8% högre energitäthet 

Det nya Plug & Play ONE-batteriet har 108Ah för ett 12V-system. Vilket är 8% mer kapacitet i samma hölje med bibehållen vikt. ONE är för dig som bara behöver ett enda batteri. 

Det nya Plug & Play Multi-batteriet med 108Ah @ 12V. Finns även för 24V system med samma kapacitet 54Ah@24V. Multi är optimerad för att användas i hushållsbanken med 2 eller fler batterier.
Plug & Play är fortfarande unika eftersom de erbjuder en enkel uppgradering från gamla batterier. Tack vare den avancerade elektroniken kan vem som helst, var som helst, enkelt ta bort sina gamla, åldrade batterier och sätta i nya plug & play-batterier.

Plug & Play fortsätter självklart med våra avancerade cylindriska celler. Inga lödöron, ingen svetsning som orsakar motstånd eller till och med kan lossna. Bultningen säkerställer tuff användning utan att påverka den förväntade livslängden.

Valet av cylindriska celler ger lite större volym för batteripacket jämfört med prismatiska celler, men det är det enda valet för att kunna bibehålla hög prestanda och lång livslängd på samma gång. Vi är stolta över våra celler och till exempel kan du läsa mycket om att Tesla kämpar med sin övergång från 2170-celler till den nyare 4680 utan lödöron. Vi har redan tagit steget från de mindre cellerna till våra 3270-celler (utan lödöron) för många år sedan.
Säkerhetsnivån är oöverträffad –
Vi vet att du inte hittar ett säkrare batteri för din båt. Detta tack vare de tre oberoende säkerhetsnivåerna hos ett Smart Lithium-batteri. För det första är kemin inert vilket innebär att ingen kedjereaktion kan ske såsom i andra typer av litiumbatterier med annan kemisk sammansättning. Du kan punktera, krossa eller lägga den i en brasa och trots detta händer ingenting. För det andra, cellhöljet som är tillverkat i metall och potentiellt skulle kunna explodera vid plötslig upphettning (till exempel om den hamnar i en brasa) – men tack vare säkerhetsventilerna som kommer att öppnar I nödfall så existerar inte detta potentiella problem. För det tredje erbjuder det datorstyrda kontrollsystemet en uppsjö av skydd som säkerställer att batteriet aldrig kommer i närheten av farligheter. 

Mobile Smart HomeDe smarta litiumbatterierna är en del av vårt Smart Home lösning med kontinuerliga gratis förbättringar. Glöm inte att du kan uppgradera din instrumentpanel genom att helt enkelt sätta en surfplatta på väggen och ladda ner vår kostnadsfria app, SUNBEAMsystem Multi Connect.

Not only the hardware is on the front line but the software user experience is as well.

Easy charge reboot
As the only manufacturer, we offer the simple and ingenious …  which allows the user to start any type of charger after completely emptying the battery. Other lithium batteries require a connection to another battery to trick the charger to sense it is connected to a battery and start the charging. Not needed on a DRIVE battery! Simply connect the charger and in the App, you tell the battery to accept the charge. 

Winter mode
For anyone with the ambition to use their battery late or early in the season. There is a risk when using other brands that the battery will shut down if it gets too cold. We solved this, and DRIVE batteries come with Winter mode allowing you to use your battery despite frosty temperatures.

Notifications
The always-updating App got smart functions such as configurable alarms. Did you know you do not even have to open the app for constant information? Both IOS and Android offer configurable pop-up information. In Android, you may get the battery status in the top bar. Never feel afraid of running out of juice again! 

SUNBEAMsystem Smart Lithium DRIVE yacht propulsion

Mar 2023

World Premiere! Smart Lithium DRIVE yacht propulsion gets a new top-of-the-line 10kWh sized battery with cylindrical cells and advanced active balancing. 

The most advanced available battery pack for electrical yachts. SUNBEAMsystem DRIVE batteries are engineered for the best possible performance and lifetime.  

For this size of batteries the marine industry conventionally uses prismatic cells for simplicity and cost savings. In the era of electric cars, one wouldn’t find any car with prismatic cells as it offers a shorter life expectancy when used in the upper regions of the performance envelope. This is why we launch the very unique 10kWh DRIVE battery with cylindrical cells and active balancing.

As with our high-performance Plug & Play batteries, we use our advanced tab less 3270 cells. No tabs, no welding or soldering that causes resistance. The bolting ensures heavy-duty usage without affecting the life expectancy or limiting the battery. We are proud of our cells and for example, you may read a lot about how Tesla is struggling in their transition from 2170 cells into the newer tab less 4680. We already took the step from the smaller cells into our 3270 (tab less) cells many years ago.

The ever-working active balancing is needed to control and maintain all the cells in this battery pack. Using state-of-the-art technology from the EV industry.  

The safety level is unrivaled – in 2023 you may not find safer energy storage for your boat. This is thanks to the three independent safety aspects of a Smart Lithium battery. Firstly, the chemistry is inert which means no run-aways can take place in other types of lithium chemistry batteries. You may punch holes, crush or put it in a fire and despite this nothing will happen. Secondly, the cell casing which is made of metal and could potentially act badly if there was a sudden heat up (for example throwing it in a bonfire) – but thanks to the security valves which will open in such case this potential problem is not existent any longer. Thirdly the computer-guided control system offers a plethora of protections keeping the battery out of harm’s way. 

Multi Connect APPThe Smart Lithium batteries are a part of our Smart Mobile Home with never-ending free upgrades. Put the tablet on the instrument panel and boast it with a modern overlook of your batteries and other devices. Simply put the tablet on the wall of our free App, SUNBEAMsystem Multi Connect. You may also instantly view the same information on every crew member’s mobile phone. 

SUNBEAMsystem solar panels – Winner Independent test by Finnish Magazine KIPPARI

Jun 2021

TOUGH+ Test Winner!

With a stunning grade of 9.1/10, the Tough+ 58W was the winner of yet another independent test! This professional test ordered by the Magazine KIPPARI compared 6 brands with a total of 8 models of different solar panels.
The measurements of the panels were done by the experts at Solar Simulator Finland in the laboratory in Littois. And the judging criteria were: Installability, Connectors & cables, Power per area, and Price per watt. The winner Tough+ 58w was declared “A high-performance solar panel which is well equipped and suitable for demanding use”.

The article also concludes:
“Walkable and a wear-resistant flexible solar panel that is easy to install thanks to the extraordinary nice wiring connection.”
“The included 3M adhesive film makes installation very easy.”
“Measured perpendicular power relative to the area was the best of all panels in the test.”

SUNBEAMsystem Nordic 54w second to Tough+ in the KiPPARI test

Nordic grabbed second place in the same test, second only to the probably unbeatable Tough+ panel. The Nordic 54w model got a score of 8,7/10 and was declared as: “High-efficiency, well-priced and easy to install”.

You can now add existing devices to the Multi Connect network with our newly launched Smart Mobile Home products.

Smart Custom Switch

Mobile Smart Home

Connect up to two devices to the new Smart Switch and enjoy switching these on or off remotely in the SUNBEAMsystem Multi Connect APP. It may control up to 10A (that is 120 Watt in a 12-volt system) appliances. With two separate channels and easy differentiation on which way is which in the on/off situation. It may be powered by a 12VDC source or even 5VDC (from for example a USB).

Smart Battery Monitor Light

Mobile Smart Home

Want to know your current state of charge? It will never reach the level of SMART LITHIUM batteries, but if you have older types of batteries you can use our SMART Battery Monitor Light for a cost-effective way to connect them to your Multi Connect APP network as well. Not as accurate SOC as a shunt but with a very accurate voltage reading and for sure an upgrade for anyone with old lead-acid batteries.
