Tadiran awarded exclusive multi-year contract for lithium batteries to power advanced water meters

 

Tadiran Batteries, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Saft Groupe, has been awarded an exclusive two year contract for the supply of lithium batteries from a US based company, Neptune Technology Group Inc, one of the world's leading manufacturers of AMR/AMI meters for water utilities.

 

Tadiran`s PulsesPlus™ battery is a proven system consisting of Tadiran leading state of the art lithium thionyl chloride batteries combined with a breakthrough technology Hybrid Layer Capacitor (HLC). This proven technology is capable of supplying high energy density and high operating voltage under high pulse discharge currents.

 

PulsesPlus™ batteries have a very wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and a very low self discharge rate (less than 0.5% per year). The battery can provide 10 to 20 years of operating life under extreme conditions with maximum safety.

 

These unique characteristics make PulsesPlus™ batteries suitable for demanding applications such as water and gas meters, AMR, toll tags, medical equipment, emergency locating and tracking systems as well as military applications.

 

Igal Carmi, CEO of Tadiran Batteries, said "We are very proud to be associated with high tech companies such as Neptune. This is further proof of the high quality and excellent performance of our technology and products"
