Saft Li-ion battery solutionsA global capability in industry –
A broad capability...Saft is an international market-leadingdesigner and manufacturer of batterysystems. Our front-line experience withindustry and the military spans overalmost a century, including more than10 years in lithium-ion.
Why Lithium-ion?High-technology devices areindispensible in today’s fast, mobileenvironment. Conventional energysources are inadequate as newapplications emerge to meet newdemands in a global market. Saftlithium-ion battery technology hasevolved to provide autonomous energysolutions : highly efficient, compact andtransportable.
Why Saft?High-tech industrial devices requireguarantees of reliability, cost efficiencyand durability. And Saft has a longexperience in delivering this level ofservice to large industries.
From Saft’s Li-ion manufacturing sites(Bordeaux and Poitiers in France;Cockeysville and Valdese in the USA)rechargeable lithium systems havebeen deployed into global industries,such as :
– professional electronics
– oil and gas
– telecom networks
Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries andsystems are fully integrated, innovativeand intelligent, optimised for a diverserange of applications, including :
� satellite positioning and navigation
� portable gas detection
� safety lamps (e.g. mining lamps,professional lighting)
� remote asset tracking
� life-preserving medical applications(e.g. external cardiac defibrillators,drug pumps, respiratory assistance)
� hospital equipment (e.g. diagnosticequipment, emergency blood warmingdevice, bone growth stimulator)
� equipment and communications for themodernized soldier (e.g. air-purifyingrespirator, radio communication, nightvision, telemetry)
� oil and gas applications(e.g. measurement while drilling, devicesfor explosive atmospheres, seismicsurveying, pipeline inspection gauges)
� professional cordless power tools(e.g. circular saws, hammer drills,impact wrenches)
� personal mobility (e.g. electric bikesand scooters, wheelchairs andstairlifts)
� on-board systems (e.g. spacevehicles, fighter aircraft, UAVs)
� professional video
Benefits of Saft’s MPand VL for professionalapplicationsSaft offers professional Li-ionsolutions for demanding applicationswhich require :
� flexibility of cylindrical and prismaticformats
� higher voltages
� more than 600 cyclescharge/discharge
� efficiency within a wide temperaturerange
� the longest possible running times
for increasing power needs
Because every application is very specific, each battery must be tailored precisely. Saft’s broad range of technologies enableoptimised solutions – whether for large installations or for small portable devices.
