The Latest in Battery Innovations and RFID Solutions
- IATF-certified labels
- Extreme temperature RFID
- Flexible printed electronics
- EV battery management
On May 23-25th, ALT Technologies will be attending the Battery Show Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. Back for the third time, the company will be showcasing the latest updates to the IATF-certified automotive portfolio of customized labels and battery protection solutions. Among them: extreme temperature RFID labels, flexible printed electronics, IATF-certified labels, and EV battery management solutions. Where can you find the experts? At Booth 8-G73!
Extreme Temperature RFID for Battery Traceability
ALT Technologies offers RFID labels specially designed for battery tracking. The new high temperature RFID labels from ALT Technologies can withstand temperatures of up to 220°C. “Extra layers of thermal and insulation protection can also be added to these labels without impacting RFID reading. Customizations are also possible,” adds Jelmer Sminia, Global Product Development Manager at ALT Technologies.
Battery Protection and Flexible Printed Electronics
The term 'battery protection' includes a wide variety of applications. From thermal interface materials to battery management system wire harnesses. Insulation films can be placed around the battery cell to prevent any thermal damage. Thermal damage could also be discovered quicker in advance with printed thermal sensors, so that appropriate measures can be taken to shut the cell down. “Printed electronics offers many opportunities with the combination of several technologies. At the booth, we will show how you can combine printed electronics with our battery management systems to create a unique battery control unit," says Mario Schmid, Business Development Manager at ALT Technologies.
A Poka-Yoke System for EV Battery Cell Connections
EV batteries consist of multiple small singular cells that are connected with cables. The challenges: cables could be connected at the wrong positions, are expensive, and heavy. The solution: replacing cables with printed electronics. “With a flexible printed electronics foil, each connection point is assigned to a defined area. This way, no faults can be made with the connections, which reflects the ‘poka-yoke’ system. The elimination of cables is a huge advantage in car battery production,” explains Schmid.
