Li-ion Battery Raises The Voltage Bar

Saft adds to its Xcelion line of Li-ion batteries, the Xcelion 56V lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery. The Xcelion 56V builds upon the existing technology behind the Xcelion 6T, launched in 2015, and the Xcelion 6T-E, a high energy Li-ion battery launched in 2018 that doubles the capacity of lead-acid batteries in the same form factor.  

The 56V battery offers higher capacity, a longer life cycle, longer calendar life, lighter weight, and smart battery capabilities compared to standard lead-acid batteries. The 41Ah Li-ion battery is an off-the-shelf solution with a nominal voltage of 52.8V and is only half the weight of lead-acid batteries of similar size.

The Xcelion 56V also includes standard safety features such as abuse-tolerant Super-Phosphate Li-ion technology and a battery management system. Smart battery features enable communication with the end user, providing information about the battery state-of-health, state-of-charge, and other functions. Applications for the Xcelion 56V include military ground vehicles, defense, microgrids, solar power systems, electric vehicles, and other applications using 48V power. For more information, peruse the Xcelion 56V datasheet.
