Smart Batteries Offer Charge Indicators and Counterfeit Protection

​Accutronics is exhibiting this week at electronica alongside its parent company Ultralife Corp., the battery and energy and communications specialist that acquired Accutronics earlier this year.

 “Our experience has shown us that many design engineers consider a device’s power source too late in the design process,” explains Neil Oliver, technical marketing at Accutronics. “At electronica, we will be exhibiting our bespoke engineering service, which can help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to get around this problem. Electronics engineers can come to us with their specific requirements and we can create batteries to fit their products, using our in-house testing capabilities to ensure a sustainable and reliable solution.

“Through our extensive research and development capability, we have created a range of smart batteries which offer features such as state-of-charge indicators and algorithmic security to protect the devices against counterfeit batteries. The Entellion range, which we will also be exhibiting at electronica, is our range of off-the-shelf smart batteries. These can be easily integrated into devices with minimal effort and cost. The range also includes the CMX Series, a high voltage and high power battery ideal for where power requirements are growing.”

In addition to the products Accutronics will be exhibiting, its parent company, Ultralife will also be exhibiting a range of off-the-shelf cells and batteries, including its Ultralife LiFePO4 batteries, which are three times lighter than lead acid batteries of the same energy.
