Today is World Battery Day!

Today is World Battery Day!

Batteries are everywhere – remote controls, laptop, phones, cars, and beyond. In 1749 Benjamin Franklin first used the term “battery” – however batteries we are familiar with today were created by Allesandro Volta, an Italian physicist.

On this day we commemorate his birth, and stamps the importance of the modern day battery.
Can you imagine a world without batteries? We certainly can’t! Remote monitoring and telemetry systems are highly dependent on the use of batteries in order to provide information about those hard to reach places.

We honor this day by reflecting on why we use batteries for our remote monitoring stations. In some circumstances we cannot use solar power or mains to run our systems, such as monitoring fuel on a train, so the robust and reliable battery comes into action. The batteries we implement into our systems can last up to 10 years!
