Some applications require reliable almost instantaneous activation e.g. ejector seats other applications can tolerate longer activation times, 1 to 2 sec but require high specific powers e.g. emergency backup power for aircraft, including helicopters and drones (UAVs) whatever, APS can deliver your requirements.
Thermal batteries can be connected in parallel and series to make full battery systems. Examples of applications are Thrust Vector Control and Divert and Attitude actuators for space applications. The high power performance combined with the simplicity of use make thermal batteries the best solution for powering the new generation of actuators.
Applications are not limited to high power. New technologies now enable thermal batteries to operate and provide power for over one hour. This longevity works well for emergency backup situations that can be used for aircraft, beacons, radios, decoys, underwater applications or parachute drop control systems.
ASB Group’s hermetic seals and connector capability enable APS to supply specific interface solutions over the full range of batteries; brackets, flanges and standard connectors can be directly integrated into the battery header thus providing a “plug and forget” power source, easily and safely integrated into your final assembly. Contact APS for special system integration needs.
The Thermal Battery represents an important field
of research where power and complete safety is required.
