In an emergency, search and rescue devices need to be put swiftly to use and cannot shutdown until the mission is complete. Therefore, the source of power should be a vital consideration for OEMs early in the product development or design process. Taking emergency beacons and drones as examples; here we consider how the functionality of these devices can dictate the battery design.
As measurements become more precise; demands for accuracy are also placed on the equipment that calculates, interrogates, monitors or communicates them; which is where selecting the optimum battery can prove invaluable.
Most of the work that takes place inside the battery manufacturing facility of Accutronics Ltd in Staffordshire, UK is highly confidential (bespoke batteries built under strict non-disclosure agreements). In this rare glimpse behind-the-scenes, we discover how the pre-engineered range of Entellion credit card batteries evolved from the drawing board to the production line.
India is projected to be the world's most populous country by 2024, making it an attractive target market for product manufacturers in the rest of the world. However, foreign manufacturers who intend to export to India are required to obtain Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) registration for both the device and its batteries (separately). Accutronics are well-placed to obtain BIS registration for batteries, however it's a time-consuming process with multiple challenges.
There are unexpected parallels between diamonds and batteries. Diamond is formed under extremely high pressure and is the world's most valuable gemstone. Likewise, battery technology is developing under increased pressure from end users and manufacturers, while remaining one of the most valuable components in electronic devices. Here, professional battery manufacturer Accutronics explores how this pressure is shaping the future of battery design.
“A new industrial revolution”. If I told you that’s how French President François Hollande recently described a form of technology, what would you think he was talking about — Robots, planes or perhaps driverless cars? In fact, Monsieur Hollande was referring to a new lithium battery plant. Batteries are big news in France and they’re constantly evolving. In this piece, professional battery manufacturer Accutronics looks at the key features of the French battery industry.
According to the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), the UK manufacturing sector risks stagnation. This warning comes from the BCC’s Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) which saw manufacturing export sales drop to their lowest levels since 2009 in the final quarter of 2015. Rob Phillips, sales and marketing director of professional battery manufacturer Accutronics, investigates how the industry can recover.
