Alarms, surveillance and smoke detectors
Power failure is simply not an option for alarm and security systems. Reliable batteries are essential for fire alarms and smoke detectors that protect life. The same applies for video surveillance and intrusion detection systems that protect against theft and damage to property. Saft batteries ensure that alarm systems work perfectly every time they are needed. They ensure complete security and protection whether or not mains power is available.
Batteries play a vital role
Battery technology is playing an increasingly important role in alarm systems.
Smaller, lighter, yet more powerful batteries are helping the trend towards miniaturization and wireless operation.
Saft’s extended capacity cells provide the long run times and robustness of design demanded in such critical applications. They also reduce the need for costly maintenance and battery replacement.
A choice of technologies
Saft primary lithium batteries are the technology of choice for smoke detectors based on ionic detection. Typically they rely on a 9 V battery that must last five years or more. Saft also offers a variety of Ni-Cd (VT
), Li-ion (MP
) and primary lithium (LS/LST/LSG
) batteries that offer a very long cycle life in alarm systems..
Lithium cells also provide long staying power for swimming pool alarms that detect when someone has fallen in unexpectedly.
Saft batteries offer superior reliability as a result of our high level of quality control and consistent production. They operate across a wide temperature range (-60°C to +85°C), In addition to home and industrial alarms, they are ideal for a wide variety of general security applications such as:
- access control systems
- electronic safes
