Embracing the Lithium-Ion Battery Euphoria - Innovations in Electrolytes
Commentary Contributed by Saurabh Shelar, Analyst, MarketsandMarkets
Electrolyte is a chemical combination of salts and solvents in fixed ratio (generally 1:4 for lithium-ion battery) to enhance the flow of ions and create a conductive medium. Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery electrolytes are classified based on state of electrolyte into solid and liquid electrolyte. Polymer pouch batteries used in laptops and cellphones are considered as liquid electrolytes.
Transient Response Analysis: Time and Cost Effective Battery Assessment
Commentary Contributed by Dong Woon Kim, M.Sc., Engineer, McScience, Inc.
Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), also called Frequency Response Analysis (FRA), is widely used for detailed analysis of battery capability. EIS is a non-invasive technique used to assess secondary battery performance and electrochemical characteristics by measuring resistance and capacitance at various frequencies.
Delta-Q Technologies Releases 85V and 120V Industrial Lithium Battery Chargers
Delta-Q Technologies has released four high frequency lithium battery chargers in the ICL series: the ICL1200 and ICL1500 in 85V and 120V models. The 85V models designed to optimally charge lithium battery systems of any lithium-ion chemistry from 14 to 24 cells in series, where the 120V models charge from 21 to 34 cells in series.
Intelligent Power Manager Software Delivers Enhanced Power Management Capabilities
Power management company Eaton has announced the global launch of its Intelligent Power Manager (IPM) software version 1.60, which now offers full integration with the Nutanix Acropolis hyperconverged infrastructure platform.
Saft Launches Xcelion 6T-E Li-Ion Battery for High Energy Applications
Saft has launched a new product in the Xcelion product line, the Xcelion 6T-E, a high energy lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery capable of providing double the useful capacity of lead-acid batteries in the same footprint. The 24V battery is designed for applications such as military vehicles, rail, marine, and hybrid gen sets that require higher levels of storage capacity and longer silent watch periods.
