Hilti Group, an innovator of tools, technology, software, and services to the commercial construction industry, has launched Nuron, a new 22V cordless battery platform that’s designed to provide users with a fully connected experience.
Nuron reinvents how construction professionals work on job sites, tackle health and safety challenges, and manage their businesses — providing power to ensure greater safety and efficiency. Connectivity is at the core of the platform, making it part of every tool, battery, and charger.
Nuron is a single 22V battery platform that enables cordless tools on all kinds of jobs, from light-duty drilling to heavy-duty concrete breaking. Launching with more than 60 tools, the battery platform enables heavy-duty applications that were once restricted to corded, gas-powered, or higher-voltage battery systems.
All of the battery packs and chargers work interchangeably under a single ecosystem to help reduce complexity for tool cribs and cost for business. Gone are the days when jackhammers, angle grinders, and large combi-hammers had to be corded.
The redesigned battery interface ensures higher performance and longer operating times by allowing a significantly higher power transfer, helping customers meet tight deadlines.
The completely reengineered Nuron batteries are also more durable including a new, fiberglass-reinforced housing and external shock-absorbing bumpers that provide extra protection even in the toughest conditions. Plus, the electronics are fully sealed to protect against moisture, dust and other job-site contaminants.
“With a strong focus on operator health and safety, we’ve achieved a wider range of cordless tools that offer our advanced features that make work safer and better protect teams on today’s jobsites,” said Deinzer. “Furthermore, all Nuron tools have been newly developed or extensively redesigned to achieve optimal performance-to-weight ratio and ergonomics.”
Nuron also brings intelligence to the core of the platform. All of the tools generate data, which is then stored on the Nuron batteries and sent securely to the cloud during every charge without any operator interaction. The data collected includes information such as tool usage, tool use, charging location, and battery state-of-health.
This information can then be used to alert individuals if action is needed immediately or can be accessed on-demand as required and is available on mobile and desktop via Hilti’s ON!Track software platform. Together, with services like Hilti Fleet Management tool data can be used to reduce downtime and optimize tool cribs to boost customer productivity.
