Securaplane Technologies has selected a brand image and tagline for its lithium mainship and emergency battery products entitled: “Securaplane System Lithium – more than a question of chemistry”. Other straplines include “Intelligent power’’, “Brilliance packaged” and “A whole new way of packing power with intelligence”.
While Securaplane’s System Lithium utilizes the optimal chemistry for its combination of safety and power—lithium iron phosphate, which exhibits significant performance benefits over traditional lithium and non-lithium chemistries —Securaplane’s System Lithium is as safe as conventional aircraft battery technology, yet lighter and more powerful because of its design. It is, in essence, a cluster of small, low-output cells wrapped in a sophisticated monitoring and health management package.
The electronics within the system design include controlled chargers and charging algorithms and circuitry for environmental control, cell health management, cell and battery disconnect, cell load management and communication of maintenance notifications to crew and ground personnel. The electronics monitor various parameters and maintain a balanced charge across the cells within the battery, thus improving reliability.
Steffen Spell, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Customer Service, commented:
“Securaplane System Lithium highlights the fact that while the choice of lithium chemistry is important, it’s the system which is packaged within that is the critical safety factor. Our branding draws attention to the investment we have put into the system, leading to program wins on helicopter and military aircraft.”
Securaplane has been developing aircraft lithium batteries with capacity ratings ranging from 10 amp hours (Ah.) to 44 Ah. This range means that Securaplane has the ability to produce and design backup or start batteries for a myriad of aircraft applications.
