Overview

Saft’s proven Ni-Cd and Li-ion battery solutions are critical to aircraft safety, providing high-peak power for engine or APU starting and emergency power backup.

 

With more than 400 different battery designs to suit virtually every requirement, all are optimized for energy and power, guaranteeing integration with aircraft and/or helicopter electrical architecture. We can do this thanks to close co-operation between all the major aircraft OEMs and our teams over the whole product life-cycle. 

Our full range of ULM® (Ultra Low Maintenance) rechargeable Ni-Cd batteries offer the best life-cycle cost as well as long duration, high quality and reduced maintenance. 

Looking ahead, we are investing in a sustainable future and have spent more than 15 years researching Li-ion solutions in order to provide cutting-edge battery systems to meet today's need for cleaner aircraft.

Our Li-ion battery systems comply with the highest standards, including DO-254, DO-178B and DO-311, and are adapted to More Electric Aircraft (MEA) platforms to ensure they are able to cope with increased electrical demands.

When it comes to support, our global distribution network is ready to respond to customer needs. We provide certified repair and maintenance battery shops as well as in-house dedicated support and service teams and battery maintenance training. We are there for customers throughout the life of their battery system.

Saft is a dedicated supplier and partner, delivering quality products, technical expertise, professional service and round-the-clock support at the lowest total cost of ownership.
