Saft is the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of advanced-technology batteries for industry. Saft batteries are widely acknowledged to be reliable, safe, cost-efficient, long-life and respectful of the environment.
Saft designs, develops and manufactures high-technology batteries for industry and specialised applications. Making them an ideal choice for Custom Built Bespoke Battery Packs.
Saft has for many years been the world leader in the design and manufacture of nickel-based and primary lithium batteries for industrial use. Saft is the world leader in space and defence batteries with its Li-ion technologies, which are also deployed in energy storage, transportation and telecommunications.
Saft’s products and solutions are essentially nickel-based batteries, primary lithium and new-generation lithium-based batteries and battery systems. They serve in a wide range of back-up or mission-critical applications in civil and military markets around the world.
The Saft LM/M cylindrical primary lithium cells are based on lithium-manganese dioxide (Li-MnO2) chemistry. They feature high surface area spiral electrodes for maximum current pulse capability and an electrolyte formula for excellent performance in the cold. They are designed specifically for applications featuring continuous currents in the 0.1-5 A range, with superimposed pulses as high as 5 A. They deliver minimal voltage delay, even after long-term storage in uncontrolled temperature environments.
Saft batteries prismatic MP and cylindrical small VL rechargeable cells are based on lithium-ion chemistry. In addition to high nominal capacities and long cycle-life, their most innovative feature is the ability to be charged and discharged over a wide temperature range, especially at low temperatures.
The MP and VL lithium-ion batteries feature various redundant safety features – electronic protection circuit, built-in circuit breaker in case of a charger fault, safety valve, shut down separator – which make them ideal for demanding applications.
Saft offers a wide range of LS and LSH cylindrical primary lithium cells, all based on the Lithium-Thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl2) chemistry. This range perfectly suits high energy and high voltage requirements in a wide range of temperature.
The LS range has a “bobbin” construction. The concentric electrodes enable the maximum loading of active materials and correspondingly, maximum energy and lowest self discharge.
This range is designed specifically for long-term (5 to more than 20 years) applications, featuring a few µA base currents and periodic pulses, typically in the 5-150 mA range.
The LSH range has a spiral construction. The range includes specific models that can operate at the very elevated temperature ranges found for instance in Oil & Gas applications.
The cells are designed for applications requiring continuous currents in the 0.1-1.8 A range, with superimposed pulses as high as 4 A.
PMBL are approved by SAFT for battery pack assembly.
