Saft has developed a comprehensive range of battery technologies and systems to satisfy all automotive on-board power/energy storage needs, from high energy requirements for battery electric vehicles (BEV) (Ni-Cd, VLE module, VL45E (45 Ah) and VL 41M (41 Ah) )and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) to high power systems for hybrid vehicles (HEV).
2. Related equipment
Batteries are specially designed to satisfy the needs required of fast involving equipment or systems such as ETC (electronic toll collection systems) (Li-SOCl2 (LS, LSH and T ranges), Li-SO2 (G and LO ranges) and Li-MnO2 (LM range)), GPS 。 Car security (LS, LSH, T, LO, G, LM and MP) systems are now fully developed and are less and less considered as options by car manufacturer and insurance companies. Door-locking systems (LS, LSH, T, LO, G, LM) are now common to all models. Tyre pressure gauges and (LS, LSH, T, LO, G, LM), emergency communication (LS, LSH, T, LO, G, LM and MP) are emerging applications designed either to prevent accidents or help emergency rescue teams to, save more lives by knowing in advance the exact position of the vehicles, and the number of persons a board.
3. Sector mobility
Batteries are specially designed to meet the energy needs of mobility applications such as electric bikes and electric scooters (VH Cs HP, VH D and VH F, STM).
4. Road infrastructure
In huts and cabinets along the highway, standby batteries are used in signaling systems (SPL). These batteries are frequently associated with solar and wind-powered energy systems (Sunica.plus) and may also be related to provision of emergency systems (SBH and SPH, SLM, VHT AA and VHT Cs, Ni-Cd VT range, VT Cs, VT D and VT F) within the network. More and more road systems involve telecom networks for communication, so remote monitoring and switching systems are often employed along the route.
This type of industrial requires back-up to cover process control systems and this usually takes the form of a UPS system (SBH and SPH, SLM, VHT AA and VHT Cs, Ni-Cd VT range) and auxialiary generators.
