SAFT – LS/LSH/LSP (Li-SOCl2) Series

Primary LS/LSH/LSP series lithium batteries are available in a cylindrical format. Using lithium-chloride-thionyl (Li-SOCl2) technology, they deliver high energy density and high cell voltage in a very wide range of operating temperatures: from  60°C to + 150°C.

Bobbin construction for the LS range delivers maximum quantities of active material, resulting in the highest possible capacities. Due to their low self-discharge rate, these batteries are ideal for use in devices with long operating cycles (from 5 to 20 years) at small current consumption at µA for continuous operation and 5-400 mA for pulse operation.

The spiral construction electrodes in the LSH range are designed for devices requiring 4 A pulse current. Some models from this series can operate at very high temperatures, and as such are widely used in the extractive industry (drilling machines).

The LSP line includes products focused on typical pulse operation, where stability and high efficiency are important. SAFT, based on its experience, has prepared ready-made products with matching LIC and EDLC capacitors for reliable operation also at high temperatures.

SAFT – LM/M (Li-MnO2) Series

Saft LM and M series primary cylindrical batteries are based on lithium-manganese dioxide (Li-MnO2) technology. They feature high surface area spiral electrodes for high power and maximum current pulse capability and high continuous drain current throughout the entire cell lifetime. The batteries can operate in a wide temperature range: from -40°C to +70°C, with the electrolyte formula designed for excellent performance in low temperatures. They are designed specifically for applications featuring continuous currents in the 0.1-5A range, with superimposed pulses as high as 12A. The batteries deliver a low self-discharge rate, they are resistant to passivation, even after long-term storage in uncontrolled temperature environments. Selected models can operate in explosion risk areas, compliant with IEC60079-11 Intrinsic Safety for ATEX applications (EC type certification).

SAFT – LO/G (Li-SO2) Series

The Saft LO/G primary batteries are based on lithium-sulphur dioxide (Li-SO2) technology. The spiral electrodes feature very high active materials surface area with high power and maximum current pulse capability. They are designed for applications using continuous currents in the 0.1-5 A range, with pulses as high as 60 A. The batteries are suitable for operation in a wide temperature range (from – 40°C to + 70°C) and deliver a low self-discharge rate, even after long-term storage in uncontrolled temperature environments.

The high safety parameters mean the batteries can be used in high performance military equipment and medical devices.
