The LIPS 16 represents the latest in lithium-ion battery technology and design and is suited for use in the most demanding environments, with a fully metallic enclosure (sealed to IP55) offering excellent physical protection and electromagnetic screening.
Originally designed as replacement for a lead acid battery used for an acoustic weapon locating system, the LIPS 16 offers performance characteristics suitable for a range of military applications and uses in other sectors that require military grade performance.
The versatile LIPS 16 battery offers an internal discharge feature that allows stand-alone discharge of the internal cell stack to below 30%, a vital requirement for transport by air, in accordance with IATA regulations.
Additional features include the ability to update the operational software and interrogate the battery memory using a mobile device, as well as the ability for the internal battery management system to store operational data for user analysis and maintenance activities.
Peter Slade, Lincad’s Joint Managing Director, commented: “Lincad’s current range of LIPS batteries are the result of continued improvements through the integration of new cell technology and enhanced mechanical and electronic design. The ruggedised LIPS 16 offers a next generation product for use across a wide range of applications.”
Lincad is at the forefront of lithium-ion battery technology, taking product performance to new limits and producing lighter, more energetic and more powerful batteries than ever before.
