Batteries are everywhere in an increasingly wireless world. However, remote wireless applications have special requirements and typically require industrial grade primary batteries that can operate for decades in harsh environments. Choosing the right battery is essential for industrial applications because it reduces the total cost of ownership and minimizes the risk of premature system failure. This webinar also demonstrates how the effects of passivation, self-discharge, and battery usage can impact device operating life and how it is possible to achieve a battery/device life of up to 40 years. The webinar also discusses how battery tests often fail to accurately reflect the long-term impact of battery passivation and self-discharge, and why it is essential to utilize proper test procedures to accurately predict battery operating life. Theoretical test results should also be cross-checked against long-term data from actual batteries in the field that are performing under similar operating environments to provide proper validation. Conducting such thorough due diligence is necessary to ensure that the battery specified will perform as promised.
