First Extended Temperature Range solid state battery

26th April 2017
Ilika plc [LON: IKA], a pioneer in materials innovation and solid state battery technology today announces the launch of Stereax P180, extending the operating temperature range of the Stereax family of solid state batteries. The Stereax P180 brings all the benefits of the Stereax products including miniaturisation and energy density with the additional benefits of support for extended temperature ranges required for many Industrial IoT and Automotive end applications. Enabling always on, self-charging energy efficient IoT solutions for more demanding environments.

As the trend towards digitizing industrial processes gathers momentum, there is a growing requirement for components with enhanced tolerance to temperature, moisture and vibration.

“For industries like ours gathering more manufacturing and in-service maintenance information on our products enables us to improve operational efficiency as it enables full life cycle traceability and visibility from manufacture through to disposal” said Keith Jackson, CTO Meggitt PLC. “Miniature, ultra-low maintenance batteries are an essential building block to the required increased instrumentation of the build and maintenance processes, both for new and retro fit capabilities”.

Solid state batteries offer more stable, energy–efficient, reliable battery technology that can be used in conjunction with all current energy harvesting technologies. They enable self- sustaining power sources that do not need to be changed regularly or use additional expensive cabling. Offering significant weight saving in automotive environments and efficient, reliable functionality over a wide range of temperatures. Relative to standard lithium ion batteries, Stereax P180 solid state batteries have lower leakage currents (10x smaller) and longer life spans, up to 10 years (5x longer). They can also be integrated with other electronic components enabling the product to be kept as small as possible. In the Stereax P180 all of these aspects are now combined with the ability to support temperatures range from -40°C up to +150°C.

“The Stereax product family brings a range of solid state battery solutions which customers can license to enable battery technology that meets the demanding needs of Industrial IoT and automotive environments, said Graeme Purdy, CEO, Ilika. ”Ilika continues its commitment to bringing market leading solutions to address the wide needs of battery technology in the connected world.”
