New compact generation of lithium-ion batteries with greater power capacity from Clayton Power

Clayton Power has launched a new generation of compact 100Ah 12V and 24V lithium-ion batteries. With the new line up to 20 batteries may be connected in parallel to create a 2000Ah battery pack and provide efficient high-capacity power supply in a compact shape.

High energy, low weight

Low weight, fast charging and a lifetime of up to 3000 cycles are some of the benefits of lithium-ion technology. Combined these features make the new compact lithium-ion batteries well suited for mobile power solutions."The chemistry of the new lithium-ion batteries combined with the built-in Battery Management System allows a peak load of up to 200A for ten minutes and 100A continually," Janick Lauenborg, Business Manager at Clayton Power explains. "A battery pack of 10 lithium batteries may provide a total of 2000A for ten minutes and 1000A continually. Such a performance cannot be matched by traditional lead technology."

"Many of our customers for instance need to outfit special vehicles with power consuming equipment. Conventional lead battery solutions make it difficult to keep the total payload below 3500 kg," explains Janick Lauenborg. "Our new 100Ah lithium-ion batteries come in a 19 kg 12V version and a 36 kg 24V version. Hence the payload can be reduced with hundreds of kilos with a lithium battery pack."

Lithium technology is highly energy efficient. While the lifetime of conventional lead batteries is reduced when discharged more than 50 %, lithium batteries endure up to 80 % discharge without taking damage. This means more energy for efficient consumption and longer operation times.

The new batteries can be connected to a combined G3 Inverter/Charger, which makes it possible to charge batteries from the mains in less than an hour, as well as from the alternator while driving. The Inverter/Charger may provide 12V or 24V to 230V/50Hz power for special equipment simultaneously for vans, boats and UPS-systems, etc.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
