Short description

Cadillock Smart – Protection against battery breakdowns via app

With highly developed technology and intelligent diagnostics for an early detection of malfunctions, the high-tech battery tester/battery monitor Cadillock Smart seamlessly checks a vehicle’s power supply via smartphone app and offers optimal security against battery breakdowns. The risk of breakdowns is significantly reduced by the Cadillock Smart; the mobility remains.

Voltage measurement
The displayed result of the voltage measurement is very precise: “A test with a high-quality measuring device showed exactly the same results.” (Cadillock Smart product introduction in the newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) from February 27, 2018)

Battery test
An algorithm measures the battery’s discharge curve and internal resistance and displays the results in four distinct stages ranging from “Battery OK” to “Replace battery”. Among other things, the Cadillock Smart can also determine whether the individual battery cells are functional or not. With a so-called virtual voltage diagram, where a conventional voltmeter would continue to display the voltage level as “normal”, the Cadillock Smart also detects whether the battery cells have already oxidized. The reason is that the battery would no longer be strong enough to start the car in such a case. The driver can perform the battery test conveniently from the driver’s seat.

Battery monitoring
The device also informs its owner about problems with the power supply. In case of over- or under-voltages, the app emits a ringing sound and vibration alarm as a warning. The functional check of the generator is performed automatically (display).

Important information before workshop visits
In case the vehicle’s power supply has a defect, the user receives exact information about the cause of failure – in time before a possible breakdown. The Cadillock Smart thus also protects the user against unnecessary repairs.

Operating instructions
The Cadillock Smart comes with easy-to-follow operating instructions in English. All of the app’s functions and all 11 possible displays are explained clearly with images. This makes the app very simple to operate after just a few minutes. No technical know-how or skills are required.

Product presentations and product tests of the Cadillock Smart have appeared e.g. in the following German and Austrian newspapers and magazines:
AutoBild, AutoBild Reisemobil, AutoClassic, Badische Zeitung, boote, Bootshandel Skipper, Camping vom DCC (Deutscher Camping Club), Caravaning, CCA-Journal (Camping und Caravaning Club Austria), elektronik industrie, FAZ*, kfz-Betrieb, Münchner Merkur, Österreich Zeitung, Pro mobil, Reisemobil International.
*The most renowned and one of the most-quoted nationwide daily newspapers in Germany. 


Application

  • Suitable for all 6-, 12- and 24-volt vehicles (cars, motorcycles, motorboats, RVs, buses, etc.) 
  • Installation of the Cadillock Smart transmission block on the battery
  • Data transmission via Bluetooth – virtually in real time (every 2 seconds)
  • Free app for Android smartphones (Android 4.3 or higher) and iPhone (iOS 7 or higher)
  • Reverse polarity protection and high protection standard against moisture with IP66
  • Minimal electricity consumption: < 2 mA
  • The app can monitor up to 5 batteries
  • You need a Cadillock Smart for each battery – this also applies to two batteries connected in parallel

App displays

 

Battery tester

The Cadillock Smart measures the charging voltage to determine the exact battery status. With the globally patented technology, a sophisticated algorithm determines the discharge curve and the internal resistance of the battery based on these measurements. This also means, for example, that the Cadillock Smart can determine whether the individual battery cells are functional or not. In a so-called virtual voltage diagram, in which a traditional voltmeter would continue to show a “normal” voltage level, the Cadillock Smart also recognizes whether battery cells have already oxidized. The reason is that the battery would no longer be strong enough to start the car in such a case. Information about the generator function (e.g. torn fan belt) and voltage regulator is also determined.

 

 

Early warning function:
Functionality check of the generator, fan belt, connections, cabling and controller

If the generator works flawlessly, “(Battery) Charging” is shown below the voltage display while driving. If there is a risk of a battery malfunction, the app notifies the user acoustically with a ringing sound as well as a vibrating alarm when the user enters the vehicle or drives.

The Cadillock Smart provides this early warning function in case of over- and under-voltage (which indicates a possible defect in the controller).

 


Display of the voltage curve

Cadillock Smart displays the voltage curve of the day or year upon request.


Customization of the vehicle name

The app can monitor up to 5 vehicles (6 V / 12 V / 24 V), which can be named as desired.


Language selection

The app can be operated in 4 languages.

Installation

Easy installation of the Cadillock Smart – only 3 installation steps

The small element with the dimensions of half a matchbox is attached directly to the car battery and connects to the smartphone app (Android or iOS) through Bluetooth. 

Steps to install the battery monitor:

  1. Attachment of the two cables of the Cadillock Smart in the screw connections of the battery’s plus and minus poles
  2. Attachment of the Cadillock Smart on the battery surface with the double-side adhesive tape
  3. Download of the Cadillock app: Google Play (Android) or App Store (Apple)

The Cadillock Smart measures the charging voltage to determine the exact battery status. With the globally patented technology, a sophisticated algorithm determines the discharge curve and the internal resistance of the battery based on these measurements. This also means, for example, that the Cadillock Smart can determine whether the individual battery cells are functional or not.

The reason is that the battery would no longer be strong enough to start the car in such a case. Information about the generator function (e.g. torn fan belt) and voltage regulator is also determined.



The core of the Cadillock Smart is the SimpleLink Bluetooth Low Energy SoC CC2451 (BL4.0) from Texas Instruments. The low-power IC connects a high-performance 2.4 GHz transceiver with an improved standard 8051 microcontroller and in-system programmable 128 KB flash, 8 KB RAM and matching peripherals. The component is supplied with an LDO regulator LP3995, the reference TL431 ensures the precision of the voltage measurement; both are also from Texas Instruments. The voltage detector is a 0.1% SMD sensor resistor 0603 from UniOhm. A red LED indicates a working Bluetooth connection.
