Webinar Series Classes
Battery Technology Advances
This webinar session will present technological advances in battery design and current applications. Attendees will learn about options in selecting a battery to meet the power and energy demands for equipment, for mobile service, and backup power for fixed equipment. This topic will cover options for packaging and configurations as well as charge and discharge methods.
Safety and Regulatory
This session will review the safety and regulatory compliance for batteries and battery packages. From transportation of individual batteries to incorporating the battery into a product, the engineer must consider all safety implications. Standards for assessing conformance will be presented. In this session, we examine the more common requirements and delve into identifying conditions of acceptability that must be satisfied when designing products using battery technology.
This session expands on the Battery Technology session and explains charging systems and advances in battery-powered devices monitoring, such as wireless reporting status to a central office for remote monitoring. Advanced battery technology incorporates many sensor technologies that make battery operation highly reliable, virtually eliminating many potential failure modes. The latter is especially important in medical device technology.
Care and Handling
This session discusses methods based on the technology to maximize the operation and longevity of battery function. From the average user of battery technology to designers preparing product user instructions, the attendee will learn about methods to meet these goals. We explore how the user awareness can support this objective during operation as well at end-of-service.
