Lincad developing new radio battery

23rd November 2016 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lincad is developing a new battery to power tactical radio equipment being manufactured by communications technology group, DTC, the company announced on 18 November.

The radio is being developed to operate in harsh military environments; in order to enable this, the battery will be ruggedised with a machined plastic housing for resilience and strength and a full enclosure seal. 

The battery will provide 14.4 Volt nominal DC power supply of 95 Watt hours with a high rate continuous discharge of 7.5A. It will have a wide discharge operating temperature of -10°C to +60°C.

It will also feature fully configurable software cell safety management with electronic hardware redundant backup for operational safety and electronic cell management. This will prolong operational life. In addition to an on/off push button, the battery will have a five LED display to provide battery status information.

Mike Hendey, Lincad’s senior systems engineer, said: ‘We’re delighted to have this opportunity to develop a custom-designed battery solution for DTC. One of our great strengths is our ability to work closely with customers like DTC to ensure a full product life-cycle service from inception through design and manufacture to product support.’
