NBS designs and manufactures custom batteries for a variety of industrial applications, supporting industrial OEMs with smart SMBus battery management solutions. From designing the PCB to choosing the right quality cell, ATE testing, and regulatory compliance, NBS provides the resources to power your portable or stationary equipment.

Today’s industrial applications require high energy density in smaller packaging to meet size and weight challenges. As a result, Li-ion and LFP cells have become the cell of choice for industrial applications including material handling, automated guided vehicles (AGVs,) scanners, ruggedized computers, and many more. LFP cells are 3.3V, safe, and can perform up to 2000 cycles while Li-ion cells are higher voltage (3.6V – 3.7V,) and select cell models are rated for higher current and extreme temperatures at -40c to +70c.

These products typically require a modular battery pack architecture with ruggedized features to ensure superior performance within varying outdoor environments and colder temperatures. NBS’s intelligent battery management system can monitor the pack’s State of Charge (SOC) and State of Health (SOH) to help optimize runtime performance and extend battery life.
