2016/08: Tadiran: The smartest choice for reliable metering applications

Metering InternationalA typical smart metering application is an electronic gas meter with electrical valve for prepayment functions and low power radio for bi-directional communications. The preferred power source for such long life requirements are 3.6 Volt lithium thionyl chloride batteries. But these batteries differ a lot, and predicting the expected operating life merely from the cell's nominal capacity can be misleading as the cell's available capacity is also affected by the internal self-discharge rate, impedance growth during discharge and the specific load profile.

2013/06: Investigations into the lifetime of gas meter batteries in the Netherlands

Metering InternationalBy 2020 there will be about seven million smart gas meters installed in the Netherlands, using batteries that are supposed to last for about 20 years. The long lifetime of the battery is crucial, because an operation to replace them would be on a large scale and therefore expensive. A study of the Dutch DSOs shows: predicted and actual battery lifetimes are in line.

2012/03: Batteries for metering applications – Voltage loss and how to overcome it

Metering InternationalA battery life of 15 or 20 years is more and more often required for metering applications. The batteries must handle high current pulses to operate valves and communication modules. Parallel connection of a small capacitor with high charge content, such as Tadiran’s HLC is a good way to overcome the build-up of voltage losses after years of operation.

2004/12: Implementing Lithium Batteries Into Automotive Applications

EPNThe requirements for batteries in automotive applications differ widely from each other. A TPMS battery, for instance, delivers a small (or no) background current with pulses up to 10 mA and should work for up to 10 years inside the wheel. Shock, vibration and centrifugal forces are very demanding. In the field of telematics, emergency, and safety devices, very high current pulses are drawn after a long standby time of up to 10 years. The article describes these applications, proposes Sonnenschein Lithium Batteries for them, and compares them to other available technologies.

Enlargement: EUMany AMR applications require stand-alone electric power where the current requirement - apart from a small background current - ranges from a few milliamperes for hand-held reading equipment to an ampere or two in fixed GSM equipment. Lifetimes of 10 years and more without charging or replacement are common in this field. Batteries are usually needed to power end point devices for gas, heat, electricity and water meters, using RF or GSM communication.
