Ellipse designers and engineers worked closely together to craft every single piece that went into making it. Everything was considered, and nothing overlooked.
The thin-film solar cell constantly trickle charge the battery and provides enough power to keep the system functioning for years of use. The solar cells are made to our standards by depositing several thin layers of photovoltaic material and encapsulating that in a flexible water resistant material.
The panel is then covered by an impact resistant, UV filtering, polycarbonate plastic. This ensures that the lens will not degrade in sunlight and reduce the efficiency of the solar cells. Ellipse has a novel power management system onboard.With both micro-usb and a thin-film solar panel onboard, Ellipse is able to duplex power between both sub-systems ensuring that the battery is never charged concurrently. The smart battery also ensures that it is never charged below freezing, has over-current & over-voltage protection, and a resettable fuse that prevents malicious attacks.
Though Ellipse has a robust steel body, the Bluetooth signal is able to come out of the lock thanks to an external tuned antenna. Besides, Ellipse has a built-in amplifier to boost the Bluetooth signal hence improving the range.
The Ellipse shackle has two locking points, which is a departure from many locks on the market, and makes it twice as difficult to breach. The shackle is made of 4100 series chromoly steel, which is an alloy with excellent strength to weight ratio and considerably stronger and harder than standard 1000 series steel. To enhance the strength, the shackle undergoes a unique two-step forging process.
In production forging, a thick rod of steel is heated to 2200°F (1200°C), pre-bent to the general shape of the shackle, and then placed between two extraordinarily hard steel dies that have the bottom and top halves formed into open faced molds. The hammer slams the dies closed with forces measured in the tens of thousands of tonnes.Under such pressure, the metal reaches a state called plastic deformation, bends, compresses, and flows into the shaped cavities of the die. A second lower temperature forging process called "warm forging" is used to improve the dimensional precision and surface finish. This coupled with precision machining and a matte nickel/zinc coating creates a part of exceptional strength and a beauty.
