BionX 2016 and beyond – integration and multi-device controls

August, 2015 – AURORA, ON, Canada – Canadian e-bike electric propulsion system manufacturer BionX will officially present the new semi-integrated downtube battery as well as the DS3 Display and RC3 Controller at Eurobike 2015.

Semi-integrated battery

BionX, known for customized OEM solutions, will now offer a semi-integrated downtube battery with an open mold tube design. It enables bicycle manufacturers to further differentiate their product and brand design.

The integration of the battery into a frame concept allows for a seamless design that is already very popular with many bicycle types. A quick and easy lateral insertion with a “slam lock” with improved connectors and docking station already installed on the frame, offers more space for full suspension frames and therefore even more options for the OEM customer to customize their Pedelecs powered by BionX.

New RC3 Remote Controller and DS3 Display

For the 2016 OEM product line-up, BionX will be offering a new intelligent, multifunctional remote controller called RC3 that can operate as a stand-alone remote without a display. The remote enables the rider to control all basic functions, such as assistance and regeneration level, switch the system and light on/off as well as navigate through the menu and select the settings allowing for better control and stability while riding.

The new BionX DS3 Display features a transflective color display, a quarter-turn mounting mechanism with rubber hand grips on the sides for secure handling as well as multiple mounting positions and a multi-language menu.

“The goal was to achieve a very compact design and superior screen resolution compared to other products on the market”, says V-Bond Lee, VP of Engineering for BionX.

There are two ways to use the new devices:

Option 1:
Keep it simple and use the RC3 Controller only, which has several LEDs which indicate the current ride mode.

Option 2:
Operate the DS3 Display with the RC3 Controller allowing for even more user information and greater visibility.
