Unhappy With Your Current Battery Technology?
Find out how we can bring you up to date...
Many OEMs manufacture battery powered equipment which was state-of-the-art when developed but is now seen as too heavy, not running long enough, taking too long to charge or not being environmentally friendly. This is no surprise when you consider that OEM devices in professional markets often have an active life-cycle of up to fifteen years and spares and aftermarket support can carry on even longer.
In many circumstances the device itself may go through a mid-life refresh to update the embedded technologies on a tried and tested mechanical platform that users are familiar with. This is the ideal opportunity for the OEM to update the battery technology and provide users with real benefits that will persuade them to abandon their old device and buy a new one.
This is where Accutronics can help! We are experts in the development and manufacture of rechargeable batteries using the latest cell chemistries. We have helped numerous OEMs to upgrade existing battery designs, providing longer runtimes, ease of recycling, fuel gauging, external visual state of charge indication, lower weight, increased robustness and reduced cost.
For example, an Accutronics OEM customer had a tried and tested battery that used Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) cell technology in a medical application. We were able to increase the energy density of the battery (both gravimetrically and volumetrically) by introducing Lithium Ion (LiIon) cell technology. This change gave the end user a 40% longer device runtime which allowed them to work a whole shift without charging. Accutronics also added smart battery functionality and fuel gauging so the customer's device could communicate with the battery and provide the user with accurate runtime information. We also helped the customer upgrade their charger from a dumb constant current unit to a smart programmable charger that would charge both the new and old batteries. This customer was able to successfully re-launch their product to the market boasting 'significant battery improvements' that increased their sales and gave new life to an established device platform.
