Battery for Multi-Turn

The battery for Multi-Turn must be placed separately, there is no dedicated space for it in Circulo. The pins for the battery are incorporated into the connector of Encoder 1.

Suitable batteries

Primary cells with a nominal voltage of 3.3 V - 5,5 V are required as the battery voltage must always stay above 3.0 V during operation. Such batteries are available for moderate as well as for extended temperature range (e.g. 125 °C). Suitable cells are mainly based on lithium thionyl chloride (LiSOCL2). They feature high energy density, high output voltage stability and operating life up to 25 years. The self-discharge per year is typically in the range of 1 %.
