First Published in U.S. Tech The Global Electronics Publication 9/13/2014 By Robin Mitchell Hee, Jason Walsh, and Matthew Barsotti, Trust Automation, Inc., San Luis Obispo, CA Battery power is essential for a wide range of portable and mobile electronic devices, and advances in battery technology can serve many different applications. To assist a variety of different applications, Trust Automation has introduced a new modular approach to battery power in the Agile Energy Management System™ (AEMS™) equipped with the firm’s proprietary Energy Management Network Technology™. While many battery designs are limited to single package styles or custom enclosures, AEMS employs a design based on modules that can be assembled to meet different applications while still maintaining standardized protection and monitoring requirements. Much thought has been invested in the design and development of these power systems, from the selection and screening of individual cells to the final development and qualification of complete systems. The end result is a “green” solution that meets the needs of customers in defense, medical, industrial, and semiconductor industries.
