Velo On-Board Power Supply - Renewable Energy for Cyclists                                                           Smooth Running - Lightweight - Efficient                                                                                                                                                               

Announcement Novelty

The UNIVERSAL POWER SOURCE from VELOGICAL is the pioneering system component for comprehensive on-board power supply on bicycles. For bike packers, commuters, randonneurs, cycling marathons, Brevet/Audax, and transcontinental racers.

Discover the maximum of innovative on-board power supply for bicycles in miniaturised design. The advantages of a USB charger and generator-fed LED lighting technology are combined in one device and centrally controlled - versatile, powerful, simple.

This electronic component works in conjunction with the VELOGICAL 3-PHASE GENERATOR or a classic hub dynamo (6V/3W).

Bildbeschreibung



The device combination enables a particularly powerful power supply with single-cell battery buffering. 

- for USB devices

- for LED bicycle lighting (incl. daytime running light and parking light) at full brightness at battery light level. 

 

The electronics of the UNIVERSAL POWER SOURCE works unusually efficient not only at low speed, but is also particularly voltage resistant at very high speeds up to 100kph.

 

The VELOGICAL UNIVERSAL POWER SOURCE always operates in the optimum range regardless of speed. To this end, it uses two technologies that are new to bicycle technology. 

- Maximum Power Point Tracking/MPPT

- Active rectifier for minimum power loss in the low speed range

 

The power of the miniaturised VELOGICAL 3-PHASE GENERATOR with 3 current-carrying cables outstrips conventional AC dynamos with 2 cables and excels in extremely smooth running.

USB devices (e.g. smartphones) can be charged or recharged in realistic time with the UNIVERSAL POWER SOURCE. For the first time, LED bicycle lights of the dynamo type (alternating current/AC) and of the e-bike type (direct current/DC) can be connected plug & play to the electronic module via the cable connections for the respective lamp type. Coupling between the used generator type and the connected consumers is automatic.

Operating this versatile device combination is very simple. Select connection, connect, and you`re done, while the technology operates in the background. The UNIVERSAL POWER SOURCE is so compact that it might be mounted even in the head tube of the bicycle. A standard in the entire automotive industry since the 1970s, 3-phase current technology has now been introduced in the bicycle sector for the first time. 

 

The VELOGICAL 3-PHASE GENERATOR and the UNIVERSAL POWER SOURCE do not require a German K-number or StVZO (German Road Traffic Licensing Regulation) approval.

Availability & Price

We expect the VELOGICAL UNIVERSAL POWER SOURCE to be available in course of october 2020. 

The envisaged introductory price shall be around EUR 180 gross.

To be added is the purchase price for the VELOGICAL 3-PHASE GENERATOR of EUR 200, 

which will include a bracket of customer`s choice.


We are currently considering bundle prices for the purchase of a complete set, consisting of VELOGICAL 3-PHASE GENERATOR plus VELOGICAL UNIVERSAL POWER SOURCE.

Envisaged bundle price approx. EUR 350 gross.

 

Connection cable

green-green for dynamo lamps/AC, 

red-blue for 12V output for e-bike lamps (e.g. 6-75V DC)

triple-black for 3-phase generator/DC

duo-black for hub dynamo/alternating current/AC
USB-port black 2A / DC-DC converter, 18650 buffering battery cell 5V x 2A = 10W 


At delivery, the buffering battery of the charger will be half charged on trickle charge. When the charger is put into operation (rotor rotation), it wakes up and signals 2 of 5 beeps, i. e., 1 tone per 20% charge volume. After 5 minutes, the charger switches off with 1 beep and with it the parking light of the e-bike lighting. With the buffering battery empty and the light switched on, the light supply from the generator shall have priority over the charger operation.
