Tadiran’s lithium batteries have been used for back-up functions in industrial controllers (PLC) ever since the company was founded in the 1980’s. As a consequence of the increasing connectivity of all production sectors within the industry 4.0, many wireless applications have gained attention, such as wireless data loggers, process automation detectors and actuators as well as many other M2M solutions. Customers appreciate the high cell voltage, long battery life, wide temperature range, and high energy density, translating into small equipment dimensions. Thus, the batteries are a custom-fit background for the industrial internet of things (IoT).
Wireless modules often require high current pulses for data transmission. Tadiran’s PulsesPlus batteries offer high power in combination with high energy. A thorough cost benefit analysis reveals that this battery system in many cases is also the most cost effective one.
