Anglia has announced a custom battery pack service. It offers in-design support on standard, customised and bespoke packs. The packs also provide a choice between primary or rechargeable cells. These battery packs are available in different cell configurations that can provide different voltages and capacities.
Provides safety approvals for customised cells
According to the firm, this service caters for chemistries including lithium-ion, lithium polymer, lithium iron phosphate, NiMH, lithium thionyl chloride as well as other non-rechargeable options. The company can also provide comprehensive safety approvals for the use of these customised batteries.
Lithium-ion offers high volumetric efficiency
According to the company, Lithium-ion is the most popular chemistry the firm sees demand due to its high volumetric efficiency. These batteries also offer high power density with large battery capacities.
Offers different connectors based on current output
Most customer requirements for a lithium-ion battery pack involve some level of customisation. It includes simple changes such as adding connectors right through to specified capacity, size and shape. The included connectors vary according to the surge current capacities. It also features embedded functionalities like battery protection and charge/discharge control circuits.
Lithium-phosphate batteries can be used in standalone applications
For high power density packs to suit medium and heavy-duty traction applications, the company also offers lithium ion phosphate chemistry. It features a long service life and deep cycling capability when compared to other chemical compositions of the battery. This, in turn, makes it suitable for stand-alone applications and off-grid systems.
According to the firm, NiMH is popular chemistry where space constraints are not an issue. These cells can be utilised in remotely located IoT applications with no access to a power connection but still require a long service life. Examples of such applications can be remote sensing and telemetry systems.
Offers non-rechargeable batteries
The firm also offers lithium, alkaline and other non-rechargeable chemistries which can be offered in standard formats or with customisation. This customisation includes the addition of PCB tabs or wire leads and connectors. Additionally, the company offers to print the customer’s own part number and brand name on the packs. It is done as a part of customer service.
David Pearson, the technical director of Anglia recently talked about the present scenario of smart electronics saying,
“ Untethered electronics is expanding rapidly, and the battery pack specified is invisible, but a central element of the product and user experience. Users expect their device to be ready for use when they want it, where they want it and that’s only possible if designers make smart choices when selecting the battery for the power source. ”
