Future Electronics Partnering with VARTA in Offering Batteries for eCall Systems

Montreal, Canada – October 16, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, promotes a variety of batteries from VARTA Microbattery.

Immediately after a car accident or while in distress, an emergency call (eCall) system wirelessly transmits the vehicle’s precise location, direction of travel, exact time and number of occupants as it sends a call for help. These signals can be automatic – triggered by severe impact – or manual – when the distress button is pressed. If all cars were equipped with these devices – sensors and the standardization of communication systems were in place – countries would save billions of dollars a year and hundreds of thousands of lives.

Telematics technology for vehicle systems – wireless data delivery, route advisories, traffic information and public safety answering point systems – will soon be universalized with standardization in communication protocols.

Future Electronics, in partnership with VARTA Microbattery Inc., can provide a variety of battery chemistries to fit these types of critical vehicle applications. VARTA’s engineers and consultants are meeting the demands of OEMs – small and large. Future Electronics and VARTA are ready to work with you to help design a successful finished product with extensive engineering and Best-In-Class consultation.
