Hilti Unveils Single Battery Platform for Tools, Includes Telematics

Hilti has unveiled a single battery platform that can power more than 60 tools, from smaller hand tools up to concrete-breaking jackhammers, and it includes embedded telematics for tool management.

Nuron is a single 22V battery platform that enables cordless tools in place of corded, gas-powered, or higher voltage battery systems. All the battery packs and chargers work interchangeably under a single ecosystem to help reduce complexity for tool cribs and cost for business. Cordless operation is now possible for tools such as jackhammers, angle grinders, and large combi-hammers .

All tools generate data which is then stored on the Nuron batteries and sent securely to the cloud during every charge without any operator interaction. The data collected includes information such as tool usage, tool utilization, charging location, and battery state-of-health. This information can then be used to alert individuals if action is needed immediately or can be accessed on-demand as required and is available on mobile and desktop via Hilti’s ON!Track software platform. Together with services like Hilti Fleet Management, tool data can be used to reduce downtime and optimize tool cribs to boost customer productivity, the company says.

The Nuron batteries include a new fiberglass-reinforced housing and external shock-absorbing bumpers for durability. And, the electronics are fully sealed to protect against moisture, dust, and other job site contaminants.

Hilti’s Dust Removal Systems (DRS) is available for all Nuron tools and Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) comes as standard. The Active Torque Control (ATC), another key safety feature, is now available with many more tools in the new Nuron product range.

Hilti also has worked with construction professionals to develop two new technologies for increased safety with angle grinders. The new 3D ATC system switches off the tool and activates the disc brake when there is sudden, uncontrolled movement in any direction. The same risk reducing function comes with the new SensTech system, which senses when the operator’s hand is removed and engages the electric brake, e.g. when the tool is accidentally dropped. Additionally, each Nuron tool has a recommended tethering method and the company offers an ANSI-compliant tethering system to help avoid falling objects when working at heights.
