For lower cost, long lifetime and proven reliability, even in the harshest environments, the most powerful solution for remote wireless sensors are advanced lithium batteries.
Did you know that advanced lithium batteries can power remote wireless sensors for more than twenty-five years?! That's one of many reasons why advanced lithium batteries are used in E-ZPass toll tags... because they keep working for decades, even while routinely being subjected to extreme temperatures and vibration.
Lithium thionyl chloride batteries are also used in medical RFID tags, wireless automated meter reading units, GPS tracking systems, data loggers, environmental measurement, emergency equipment, as well as military and aerospace applications.
Advanced lithium batteries are ideal for harsh environments because they can operate in extreme temperatures and have the highest energy per unit weight and highest energy per unit density out of all battery chemistries.
Lithium thionyl chloride batteries come either in spiral wound cells or bobbin-type cells, with spiral bound having high current pulse capability -- resulting in higher current draw and higher self-discharge; and bobbin-type having higher energy density, higher capacity, a wider temperature range and longer lifetime.
So, how do you choose the right advanced lithium battery for your application? Factors to be taken into consideration include capacity, voltage, size, environmental factors, and of course, cost. You may also need to look at issues such as safety concerns and storage requirements.
At FutureElectronics.com it's simple to select the right Lithium Battery for your application using our advanced search and technical attribute filters, let me demonstrate.
First, I type 'batteries' into the search box; notice how the type ahead feature correctly predicts my intended search. Next, I choose the 'Lithium' from the Chemistry section. The menu offers filter categories, where I click on '3V' under Voltage, and then, using the 'Select more than one' feature check both 48 and 50 mAh for Capacity. And just like that, several corresponding parts come up. And then I click on, to see an image and product details for each one.
