Lincad announced the launch of its Lithium-ion Power System (LIPS 16) battery, representing the very latest in lithium-ion (Li-ion) technology and design, on 22 October.
Suite to the most demanding environment, LIPS 16 features a fully metallic enclosure (sealed to IP55), offering excellent physical protection and electromagnetic screening. Originally designed to replace a lead-acid battery used for an acoustic weapon locating system, LIPS 16 offers performance characteristics suitable for a range of military applications and uses in other sectors that require military-grade performance.
The versatile battery offers an internal discharge feature that allows stand-alone discharge of the internal cell stack to below 30%, a vital requirement for transport by air, in accordance with IATA regulations. Additional features include the ability to update the operational software and interrogate the battery memory using a mobile device, as well as the ability for the internal battery management system to store operational data for user analysis and maintenance activities.
“Lincad’s current range of LIPS batteries are the result of continued improvements through the integration of new cell technology and enhanced mechanical and electronic design. The ruggedised LIPS 16 offers a next-generation product for use across a wide range of applications,” commented Peter Slade, the company’s Joint Managing Director.
