Lithium batteries from Panasonic are ideal for long-term use in applications with different temperature requirements

For reliable data security in utility meters, a dependable power source is essential. A battery that can perform consistently, even in widely fluctuating ambient temperatures and for an extended service life, can help reduce maintenance costs. During automated meter reading, a battery that can provide high pulse currents, even after prolonged periods, is necessary. Choosing the right battery is crucial to ensure uninterrupted data collection and reduced risk of downtime or data loss.
Utilizing unique CR technology developed by Panasonic, the battery voltage remains consistent over extended periods of time. With a lifespan of over 15 years, they provide dependable power. Panasonic Lithium batteries have stable internal resistance and low self-discharge. They also do not require additional capacitors to avoid passivation.
Under development, the new CR-LAZ battery has a nominal capacity of 3000 mAh. This makes it particularly suitable for applications where battery replacement is difficult. These Lithium batteries have an excellent high pulse discharging performance and a wide operating temperature range. Typical applications include gas meter, water meters, gateways, fire alarms, and IoT sensing devices.

Ideal for industrial equipment, the CR series cylindrical type Lithium batteries offer long service life, a stable internal resistance, excellent pulse discharging characteristics, wide temperature range of -40 to 85°C, and low self-discharge (<1% per year at 20°C).

Lithium coin type batteries for high temperatures, the BR-A series features a wide temperature range of -40 to 125°C and elf-discharge (<0.5% per year at 20°C). The high energy density and special materials used for the gasket and separator make this industrial battery series the ideal energy source for high ambient temperature applications.
