Military Contract Completed
Just Batteries was recently contracted by one of its military customers to design and manufacture a battery charger and analyser system to be used in various field operations.
The company’s national sales manager, Gary Chapman, provided insight into the challenges that the project presented. “Initially, we were obviously very excited by the challenge of designing the system. It was only after a few days that the design team started to fully understand the magnitude of the system’s requirements. It was then that we were able to fully appreciate both the complexity and magnitude of the circuitry that would need to be both designed and manufactured.”
The customer’s requirements included charging of three different chemistries (Li-ION, Ni-MH and lead acid batteries) as well as the ability to fully analyse the health of any one of these batteries. The charger analyser system needed to accommodate no less than 10 different battery models currently used by the military.
