Ni-Cd & Ultra Low Maintenance Batteries

Aircraft batteries are critical to aircraft safety and operation. Saft’s proven Ni-Cd and Li-ion battery solutions provide high-peak power for autonomous engine or APU starting, essential on the ground and especially important in the event of an in-flight engine flame-out. The batteries also provide back-up power in case of an in-flight electrical generation system failure, where the battery must be able to supply the energy for essential avionic instruments until landing.

Your Battery Is a Flight Critical Component.

With more than 400 different battery designs to suit virtually every requirement, Saft batteries are optimized for energy and power, guaranteeing integration with aircraft or helicopter electrical system architecture. Saft batteries are the standard for nearly all major aircraft OEMs and are designed for each specific application with OEM specifications.

Saft’s Ni-Cd batteries have several advantages over Lead-Acid batteries: They are more reliable and safe (no ‘sudden death’), have a higher performance for engine and APU start-up, last longer and are more environmentally friendly.

Saft’s Ultra Low Maintenance (ULM®) technology are the latest Ni-Cd generation batteries which cut the need for maintenance events in half while providing the same performance and quality. The Saft ULM® batteries are directly interchangeable with standard products in form, fit and function.
