July 31, 2007 by Jeff Shepard

LEM SA announced its appointment of Alan Denny as the new Business Development Manager for its Battery Monitoring Division. Denny joins LEM with extensive experience in the power electronics market, a result of his professional career in various technical and operational management positions. More recently, he worked for PK Electronics as Managing Director in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa and was Managing Director with NDSL.

"Alan brings outstanding credentials to LEM and will be a vital member of our team," said Paul Van Iseghem, CEO of LEM. "His experience in the battery monitoring market will be invaluable as we continue to develop cutting-edge components that meet the needs of the most demanding applications."

Based at LEM’s headquarters in Geneva, Denny will play a key role in ensuring that LEM continues to deliver high standards of service and product quality, and that it remains at the forefront of innovative technology. He will focus on driving the business forward by developing a global network of channel partners who will integrate the LEM components into their own battery management systems.

Continuous battery monitoring is increasingly recognized for its importance in lowering maintenance costs and helping prevent catastrophic battery failure in power critical environments where 100% up-time is vital. LEM states that it aims to offer the most comprehensive range of high quality components to the battery management market while reducing the cost of monitoring, which traditionally has been as much as 50-70% of the cost of the battery, to a level affordable by most battery system users.
