The Saft LS/LST cells are primary lithium cells based on Lithium-Thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl₂) technology. The LS/LST cells were specifically designed for long-term applications (3 to 15 years). Uses include:

  • Memory back-up
  • Measuring equipment
  • Safety systems
  • Professional electronics

 

The Saft LSH primary lithium cells are based on Lithium-Thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl₂) technology. These cells were designed for applications that require continuous flows of 0.1 Ah to 1.8 Ah. They are used for, among other things:

  • GPS
  • Oil extraction
  • Automotive
  • Automated meter reading
  • Emergency beacons

 

The LS-W Saft cylindrical, primary lithium cells are based on Lithium-Thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl₂) technology. Their main characteristic is the concentric electrode (coil) structure which enables the maximum occupation level of active materials and a specific electrolyte. The LS-W cells were specially designed for electronic toll applications. These cells can handle very rapidly varying temperatures and are generally used for:

  • Electronic toll systems
  • Identification and tracking systems
  • Professional electronics

 

The Saft G primary lithium cells are based on lithium-sulphur dioxide (Li-SO₂) technology and have electrodes with very large surface areas for maximum capacity. They are, among other things, used for:

  • Military radio communication
  • Cardiac defibrillators (AED)
  • Sonar and underwater applications
  • Professional electronics

 

The Saft LO cylindrical, primary lithium cells are based on lithium-sulphur dioxide (Li-SO₂) technology, are designed for applications with continuous flows and are used for, among other things:

  • Military radio communication
  • Cardiac defibrillators (AED)
  • Sonar and underwater applications
  • Professional electronics

 

The Saft LM cylindrical, primary lithium cells are based on lithium-manganese dioxide (Li-MnO₂) technology and can provide optimum performance under cold conditions. They were specially designed for applications that require continuous flows. They are used for applications including:

  • Military radio communication
  • Cardiac defibrillators (AED)
  • Measuring equipment
  • Professional electronics

 

Saft MP prismatic, rechargeable cells are based on lithium-ion (Li-ion) technology. These cells can be charged and discharged in a wide range of temperatures, particularly low ones. The MP cells are equipped with various safeties. They are utilised for, among other applications:

  • Medical defibrillators
  • Military radio communication
  • Portable gas detection
  • Electric bikes and mobility

 

Friemann & WOLF (FRIWO) is one of the world's leading manufacturers in the field of hermetically-sealed lithium cells. FRIWO batteries are used in applications that require high levels of energy to be supplied. The batteries remain ready for use even after long-term storage and under tough environmental conditions. They are used for, among other things, emergency transmitters, communication equipment and space technology. The state-of-the-art, fully automated production lines guarantee the consistent high quality of the FRIWO lithium cells that meet the most stringent requirements as set by space agencies.
