According to the company, Tel.X has long service life, more than 20 years in normal temperatures and more than 14 years at plus 40 degrees centigrade. The battery is also claimed to offers high volumic energy density, of up to 100Wh/L while weighing around 30% less than a conventional battery.
Tel.X is ideally suited for backup power applications in outdoor installations, such as cabinets and end terminals in fiber-optic ‘triple-play’ networks as well as Base Transceiver Station (BTS) and Base Station Controller (BSC) installations in wireless networks.
Xavier Delacroix, general manager of Saft’s IBG division, said: We currently have approximately 2% market share in the telecom network market with our nickel-based batteries. The potential is therefore considerable. Our new production line is a major commitment to this market with very significant growth potential and we are ready to expand it further as demand develops.
