Webinar Series Classes

September 19, 2017:  Battery Technology Advances
This webinar session will present technological advances in battery design and current applications. Attendees will learn about options in selecting a battery to meet the power and energy demands for equipment, for mobile service, and backup power for fixed equipment. This topic will cover options for packaging and configurations as well as charge and discharge methods.

September 26, 2017:  Safety and Regulatory
This session will review the safety and regulatory compliance for batteries and battery packages. From transportation of individual batteries to incorporating the battery into a product, the engineer must consider all safety implications. Standards for assessing conformance will be presented. In this session, we examine the more common requirements and delve into identifying conditions of acceptability that must be satisfied when designing products using battery technology.

October 3, 2017: Battery Management
This session expands on the Battery Technology session and explains charging systems and advances in battery-powered devices monitoring, such as wireless reporting status to a central office for remote monitoring. Advanced battery technology incorporates many sensor technologies that make battery operation highly reliable, virtually eliminating many potential failure modes. The latter is especially important in medical device technology.

October 10, 2017: Care and Handling
This session discusses methods based on the technology to maximize the operation and longevity of battery function. From the average user of battery technology to designers preparing product user instructions, the attendee will learn about methods to meet these goals. We explore how the user awareness can support this objective during operation as well at end-of-service.

Washington Laboratories Academy recently completed this webinar series on battery technology presented by Cadex Electronics Inc. and Battery University. This 4-part series presented vital information for any and all that use or consider using battery power. From chemistry to safety to management to care, the series provided attendees an understanding about selecting and incorporating this technology and an eye-opening presentation on what options are available in the world of portable power.

We highly recommend this training for systems/design engineers, test/evaluation engineers and technicians, shipping and logistics professionals and all of those who are involved providing guidance to users.

This series was well-attended and the presenters received many questions during the online events. We were encouraged by the response and interest and decided to repeat the performance each Tuesday starting September 19, 2017 at 12:00PM ET (9:00AM PT).
