Based just down the road from their UK manufacturing plant, we have forged a close relationship with Saft Batteries. Becoming an authorised distributor of their cells to the UK market while also using them in our own custom battery packs. We hold a large stock of their LS & LSH range and can take enquiries for other Saft products.
Both the LS and LSH range use Lithium-Thionyl Chloride (Li-SOCl2) chemistry. Making them perfectly suited to high-energy and high-voltage requirements in temperatures ranging from -60°C to +85°C.
The LS and LSH range are commonly used with following Market Sectors:
Compliant with IEC60086-4, IEC60079-11 and UL1642 certification, they are also compliant with the European RoHS and REACH directives.
The Saft LS range have a bobbin cell construction to allow for the maximum amount of active materials; leading to more energy capacity than the Spirally wound LSH range.
LS cells are designed specifically for long term use in applications that have a base current measurable in Microamps (µA). They can handle periodic pulses between 5-150 Milliamps (mA) but can go up to 0.4 Amp with the Saft LS33600 D cell. Depending on the frequency and type of pulse, the LS range can last between 5-20+ years in operation.
LSH cells have a spirally wound construction, allowing for higher pulse rates. The LSH20 has a max pulse discharge rate of 4.0A. They can last between 2-10 years in applications with low base currents with periodic pulses typically between 50mA – 2 Amps.
They can also be used in applications that require continuous currents between 0.1-1.8 Amps.
