• Li-SO2 primary battery system
• 10 LO 26 SX cells connected in 2 groups of 5 cells in series providing 2 nominal 12 V
sections at connector.
These sections can be connected in series (for 24 V) in parallel (for 12 V) or used
as two separate 12 V units.
• A non-replaceable fuse is incorporated in the negative leg of each series group of cells.
• A normally closed high temperature switch or thermal fuse is incorporated into each series group
of cells to protect against overheating.
• A diode is incorporated into the positive leg of each series group of cells to prevent charging or
flow of current into the battery.
• A device consisting of a manually activated pull tab and resistors designed
to discharge the battery to 0 V is built into the battery.
