High Drain & Extended Temperature Lithium Coin Batteries Development for IoT Devices

Sunday, September 8, 2019 - 10:45

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. announces development of new High Drain and Extended Temperature batteries as part of its lithium coin battery line-up


Application of lithium coin batteries is widespread, ranging from the Internet of Things (IoT), automotive, medical to factory automation (FA) markets. Traditionally lithium coin batteries have been used to provide backup power for low drain devices. However, the demand for lithium coin batteries as main power source are recently drastically increasing with growing IoT market. In order to support such customer needs, in addition to current standard and heat resistant lithium coin batteries, Murata has newly developed High Drain and Extended Temperature lithium coin batteries by leveraging its heat resistant battery engineering design and utilization technologies that have been accumulated over the past many years of production.

The High Drain lithium coin batteries are ideal for tracking devices for logistics and asset management by adopting Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks such as Semtech’s LoRa Technology and SIGFOX as well as for outdoor infrastructures, FA control systems and environment monitoring sensors. The Extended Temperature lithium coin batteries are designed mainly for automotive devices and outdoor IoT systems (including smart meters and FA control systems) and can also be used as an alternative smaller and thinner solution to conventional lithium cylindrical batteries.
