Battery Management System(BMS)
Electrical device, which assures the optimal usage of the battery regarding performance and maintenance. For this reason battery charging and discharging characteristics are recorded. This record can be useful for billing.

Bus System
Cable system with control components which allows the transfer of data, communication and transfer of energy between connected components.

Bus Protocol
(also: communication or network protocol)
an exact definition how data is transferred

CAN Bus
Controller Area Network
Bus system developed for automobiles by Bosch in 1983. Today it is also used in the automotive, medical, and aviation technologies. Further information

CANopen
Bus protocol based on CAN, mainly used in the automation industry.

EnergyBus (EB)
A new standard to improve compatibility of electric components in Light Electric Vehicles (LEV). It consists of a standardized set of plugs and a communication (bus) protocol. This protocol is based on CAN bus and further specializes to meet the specific needs of the LEV industry.

Light Electric Vehicle (LEV)
Pure electric and electrically assisted vehicles with two or more wheels and a weight up to 250kg.

Vehicle to Grid (V2G)
Vehicles that use combined battery power taken from many vehicles connected to the power grid to supply
sudden demand in the grid. This means that the charging of the vehicle will be disrupted and the energy flow reversed. The customer will sell this energy back to the grid for a higher price.
