HELLA is one of the world’s leading suppliers and developers of electronic micro-hybrid components. These include the Intelligent Battery Sensor (IBS), which many car manufacturers use as a key part of their vehicle energy management systems. The sensor system ascertains the battery’s status and always delivers precise power, voltage and temperature readings. This data can then be used to redistribute energy within the vehicle so that it is used as optimally as possible. The IBS sensor is able to reduce CO2 emissions by around 2.4 g/km. HELLA Group also offers voltage stabilisers to enhance start/stop systems. These products reduce emissions and fuel consumption when a vehicle is waiting, for example, at railway crossings or traffic lights.
