2014-09-15 / A world premiere of FIAMM solutions with lithium ionsA world premiere of FIAMM solutions with lithium ions
At Automechanika Frankfurt, the most important international event for mechanics, petrol service stations, auto replacement parts and accessories providers will be the venue for the world premiere of the new FIAMM range of accumulators with lithium ion technology.The objective is clear:to follow and anticipate development and requests in a sector with an extremely high technological content, like the automotive industry.FIAMM, thus, confirms its leadership in the field of accumulators and its continued commitment to the research and development of solutions with highly innovative content.
Three worldwide innovations will be present at the FIAMM stand from the 16th to the 20th of September at Automechanika in Frankfurt (Hall 3.1, Stand D91 – D95).
48V Lithium-Ion Battery: designed for the next generation of micro-hybrid vehicles, the two 48V batteries developed in collaboration with Magneti Marelli represent the state of the art from a technological point of view. The first, created for vehicles with advanced start&stop technology, weighs just 4.5 kg yet allows a 15% reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The 12 Kw nominal power, thanks to the recovery of energy while braking, guarantees the necessary sprint for extra support also during the phases of acceleration.
The second solution, conceived for vehicles in the A, B, and C segments, as well as advanced Start & Stop services, recovery of energy while braking, support during acceleration guaranteed by the first battery, allows totally electrical functioning at zero emissions for a few kilometres, thanks to 30 kw of nominal power and 700 Wh of usable energy. These innovative batteries, developed with the help of Magneti Marelli electronic technologies, offer important evolutions in the world of sustainable mobility, enabling the exploitation of new technologies that guarantee fewer emissions of pollutants and reduced fuel consumption, while above all providing clean and ecological access to urban centres.
12V Lithium-Ion Starter Battery: conceived for low-weight high performance applications, the 12V, 850 Ampere Start&Stop battery developed by FIAMM with lithium ions (size L5) was developed to meet automobile manufacturer’s increasing need to reduce weight and consumption.High tech products like those put on the market by the Italian Group are the unique solution to guarantee quality standards capable of meeting the energy needs of the new generation of vehicles without compromising on weights and volumes. The new FIAMM battery with lithium ions,850 Ampere (size L5), guarantees a saving of 15 kg compared to a lead accumulator with similar characteristics.
