Professional Communication Applications

VARTA Storage understands that the battery is a mission-critical component in devices such as TETRA handsets, satellite phones and video equipment. Giving customers the confidence that power will be available when needed in potentially harsh environments and over an extended product lifetime is critical to end-users who may be using communications equipment in security, law enforcement, military or safety contexts.

Key requirements
  • Cell selection to provide longest possible runtime and total battery lifetime
  • Battery design to cover wide range of temperature environments, often worldwide (-40degC to +80degC)
  • Storage life and charging performance
  • Compact, energy dense designs for easy carrying of spares
  • Market access certifications, often worldwide (UL, PSE, KC, Ghost R etc)

VARTA Storage Battery Packs for:
  • Satellite Phones
  • TETRA Phones
  • Security handsets
  • Emergency call devices

Humanoide Robotic

A relatively new but demanding industry, VARTA Storage is naturally engaged in supporting world-leading applications. Complex humanoid robotics applications may need considerable power but almost certainly complexity in the electronics. Larger packs of 1kWh and above may come into play and batteries may commonly feature cell balancing, complex communications, fuel gauging and thermal management as well as meeting the usual requirements for performance, longevity and budget considerations. As you would expect, with VARTA Storage, you will be in good hands.

Key requirements
  • Advanced battery features; communications, fuel gauging, cell balancing, thermal management
  • High performance and reliability providing energy for electronics, communication and motor functions in parallel (complex energy usage profiles)
  • Experience and understanding in battery development for robotics applications, design requirements and considerations and certification requirements
  • Cell selection to ensure best performance balance across all project requirements
