Continuing Long-Standing Relationship with Leonardo
UK battery and charging systems specialist Lincad has seen demand increase in the Asia-Pacific defence sector for its Battery Power Management Systems Mk2 (BPMS Mk2) for military applications and deployment, the company announced on 24 September. Lincad is supplying into this region through Leonardo.
The BPMS Mk2 is a 120Ah lithium-ion battery system that contains the battery charge management and power routing electronics required for self-contained UPS functionality. The system has been designed to support a 24V DC power supply, as well as to act as a stand-alone 24V DC power source, offering maximum versatility in demanding military environments. It can be carried by soldiers, weighing just 25kg, and can be mounted on a mobile or static platform once in situ.
The BPMS Mk2 has been designed to upgrade and replace Lincad’s original BPMS, which has been in continuous use with military forces around the world for over 12 years. As well as including the very latest in battery and charger technology and design, additional features on the Mk2 version include the functionality to update operating software via PC, laptop or mobile app as required, as well as the ability to store periodic data for diagnostic and maintenance purposes.
Joint Managing Director, Peter Slade, highlights that Lincad is continuing “[…] our long-standing relationship with Leonardo to supply the Asian market with our battery power management systems. This partnership further strengthens Lincad’s Asia-Pacific footprint.”
