ESUK Jun13 p22 Power Jauch1Jauch‘s smart lithium rechargeable batteries provide essential information about battery performance, backed by an intelligent, consultative design service

Users of smart lithium rechargeable batteries can access battery pack status at any time. It is also possible to programme various voltage level alarms, which can then inform the application when thresholds are reached. Together with accurate fuel gauging, these batteries are designed to provide essential information for today’s demanding products.

To meet the full range of diverse requirements, Jauch Quartz is capable of assembling smart electronics onto single lithium polymer cells, all the way up to large lithium ion battery packs consisting of 170 cells.

Naturally, Jauch Quartz draws on its experience as a manufacturer of specialist frequency control products, which it supplies into the global electronics market. With manufacturing plants in Germany, China and Indonesia, Jauch claims to be one of the largest suppliers of quartz crystal devices in Europe.

The company’s batteries division has been supplying batteries and battery systems into Europe for over 35 years and is now rapidly increasing both its customer base and its reputation as a lithium ion / lithium polymer battery solution provider. This is achieved by offering a consultative approach to design, cell performance selection, electronics safety, fuel gauging, pack building, testing and external certification, in order to offer a full service.

With European research and development and manufacturing facilities in Germany and the Far East, it aims to cater for any volumes, ranging from very small to extremely large.
