Space mission approved SAFT batteries used in LDL’s telematics box

By | Market News

LDL Technology has sourced leading battery manufacturer SAFT to provide a state of the art rechargeable battery for its TCU 1.2 telematics box. The same kind of li-ion battery will be used on the ExoMars Rover vehicle scheduled for 2018 by European Space Agency (ESA).

A key advantage of theses Li-ion cells is their compact, lightweight design and their high performance in demanding operation conditions, even when subject to extreme fluctuations in temperature from -40 ° to +85°C.
