Some tracking applications using active RFID solutions represent mass markets which include Electronic Toll Collection for cars where millions of Tadiran Lithium Thionyl Chloride batteries are being used by car owners in their toll tags because they need swift and reliable service when passing a road toll station. Likewise, these batteries are used as back-up batteries in on-board units for truck toll collection such as the satellite based Toll Collect system. High voltage, high energy, wide temperature range, small size and low weight as well as an outstanding reliability are the decisive factors in the selection process for the right battery.
Tracking containers and railway carriages may require higher pulse currents because they rarely have an electrical power source other than the battery that comes with the tracking equipment. If this equipment communicates via radio or GSM network, Tadiran’s PulsesPlus battery offers the best value tradeoff between high power, long life, and affordability for all possible tracking solutions.
Animal tracking programmes demand small, powerful batteries. Through the years, Tadiran lithium thionyl chloride batteries have been selected for numerous animal tracking research programmes due to their high capacity and high energy density, which translates into reduced size and weight and the smallest possible footprint. These batteries also help farmers to reduce the cost of milk production and cattle breeding by wireless health monitoring and fertility management of cows.
