We needed a solution that could work in the tough conditions experienced in Saudi Arabia. Saft’s unique LSH 20 cells were simply the only solution.Ignacio LLopis Managing Director of IoTsens
Because drinking water is a scarce resource in Saudi Arabia, the country's government has established a project to optimize and streamline consumption. An important part of this is the network of Watchmeter data loggers supplied by IoTsens, that creates and develops integrated solutions for smart cities. By sensing high-frequency vibration in the water distribution network, the Watchmeter units monitor consumption patterns without having to break into water mains to install an inline-meter. The result is that customers can monitor and control their own consumption. However, the Saudi climate represents a challenge as heat causes many batteries to experience premature ageing.
IoTsens turned to Saft's high-power LSH 20 primary lithium battery as the ideal solution thanks to its exceptional pulse capability and long design life that builds on Saft's 30-year plus expertise in Li-SOCl2 technology. The LSH 20 also has the proven capability to deliver high performance over extreme temperatures in tough and remote environments.
