Maxell Corp. of America (http://maxell.com) has introduced two high temperature-resistant coin-type Li/MnO2 batteries for tire pressure monitoring systems and other rugged applications. The batteries—available as CR2450-HR for standard vehicles and CR2450-EX for premium vehicles—can operate from -40 to 150C and have a standard capacity from 525 to 550 mAh. Both types measure 24.5 mm in diameter and 5 mm high, and weigh less than 6.8g.
With a better understanding of materials’ response to load and temperature, researchers could potentially use the knowledge to improve design. The research could even help geologists studying plate tectonics.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
