Abstract:

The physical and electrical characteristics for a family of cells and batteries of the Nickel-Cadmium, Cadmium-Silver Oxide and Zinc-Silver Oxide electrochemical systems are presented. Four cell sizes exist for each system which are used in standard batteries of man-pack and detached configurations. Standard batteries are housed in fiberglas reinforced plastic cases designed to withstand severe environmental and mechanical requirements. The flexibility and interchangeability to be derived from standard batteries was enhanced by incorporating in each battery the capability of operation at two voltages and two capacity levels. Design, physical and electrical characteristics, availability and future plans are presented. Author
