A portable charger for military equipment created in Russia

77

Technopolis "Era" has developed a compact charger intended for military equipment and does not require recharging from the generator. Its mass is 1,5 kilograms.


About this news agency TASS said employee of the 4th scientific company Yegor Vinogradov.

The device belongs to electrochemical generators. It can be used to charge military portable radios, navigation devices, laser range finders and other equipment operating in the field from rechargeable batteries. Its power can reach 150 watts.

The charger operates on a hydrogen fuel cell. Since the reaction products are hydrogen and carbon dioxide, the operation of the device does not damage the environment.

And although similar equipment is made abroad, the weight of foreign analogues exceeds 2 kilograms, while the new Russian charger weighs 1,5 kg. The small mass allows the device to be used in a combat situation, when servicemen operate in full gear, which has a significant mass.

But most importantly, a generator is not needed to charge new equipment, which is difficult to use in the field. It only needs a spare hydrogen fuel cell weighing only 450 grams.

      Bravo, Mauritius! Even the jingoistic patriots have the beginnings of critical thinking!
      What will we charge and how soon will it go on sale?

You can get billions from the treasury and then bring a black and white tablet made from Chinese parts to the president.

    Generally, hydrogen is fire and explosion hazard, so this fuel cell must have an increased degree of protection, which will inevitably increase its weight.

      If this is a "cellular technology", then the material there is quite explosion-proof, but rather capacious ...
      Even in the USSR, they wanted to replace conventional types of fuel with such technologies and managed to advance quite strongly, but with the collapse of the USSR, the work died out, and now apparently they got a new "breath"

          This is not the problem. This is most likely a so-called proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC).

          Developed back in the 60s by General Electric and used by NASA in the Gemini space program. But since platinum was used as a catalyst to split hydrogen, it was very expensive.

          The Japanese are trying to use cesium oxide. If it works out, then the cost will drop 5 times.

        svp67 is an electrochemical reaction, that is, the decomposition products of hydrogen in the form of heat generated are converted into electricity, and the excess is probably dissipated in order to avoid overheating of the device. With an increase in the power of the output current, all hydrogen is completely involved in the reaction, but all the same, then the device has an increased degree of danger for shock, perhaps even a ban on being near other heat sources.

        Still, you still need a spare container with hydrogen plus a unit, the total weight is not small .. Don't miscalculate a spare charged battery right away. Each piece of equipment with an engine has the ability to create a recharge. For extreme cases (DRG, etc.), a portable hand-held (foot) dynamo ... And, of course, soft amorphous photovoltaic batteries on outerwear, all kinds of surfaces ... Power supply becomes comparable to ammunition supply ...

          In the Soviet army, this happened in the mid-70s, probably: portable dynamos, charging from the radiator of the car or the heat of your own body, and chargers for night vision on a waist belt weighing 200-300 grams. - 4 batteries were charged at once.

            Today, the capacity, number and other requirements are different, more powerful chargers are needed, no longer from heat, but from a generator and AB, with the output of connectors for charging. Such charging capabilities should be provided for all ICE-equipped units. The battery charging time has become especially important, there are already created batteries. where the time for a full charge is less than an hour, these are the ones that should be used ... Hand dynamo machines only for exceptional cases: emergency sets, DRG ... The topic is broad and very important today, because so far the lag is significant ...

                  Where did it come from? There are no such people in the army, there were not until the early 90s, or rather. A new trend, or what? There were WG - reconnaissance groups in intelligence at all levels. Well, perhaps, from the army reconnaissance company, they could still be called RG SN - special purpose reconnaissance groups, but this is a formality. In reconnaissance, I went from the reconnaissance platoon of the SMR to the intelligence department of the army corps, to which the OBRSPN was attached, never heard any DRG. In my opinion, this is a purely amateurish term. In any case, not an army one.

I poured hydrochloric acid into a jar to the level, threw a calibrated zinc tablet and closed the lid. As it worked, I poured it out and re-filled it. A device for warriors, not for everyone.

        Not! I'm talking about the transformation of variable magnetic flux, which is key. Without a doubt, the control of the pulse, and most importantly its interruption rate and, in general, the formation of pulsation algorithms, is of great importance. However, I am talking about a new generator and a method of transformation of the so-called direct current. It is worth clarifying here that not everyone understands in what planes the DC oscillatory modulation occurs. But it is the direct current that can be modeled as impulsively unidirectional in the vector.

            But this is your knowledge! You see, but solenoid coils have a very significant dependence on parasitic currents, which have a known nature and their parameters. But if you level them and use turnless coils, then you can form a very powerful spin or rotating magnetic flux. And now it can be used through rolling moments to transform the current in a linear vector. So who is your doctor? But then you can generally get away from the emphasis on batteries and use them only as initiators of the process. Because on the same shaft and on different rotor planes, both the generator and the engine can be placed simultaneously as a functional part.

                When talking with your opponents, you do not come across rudeness. Therefore, I think other sites are more comfortable. And I think that soon developments of a new level will find their place. Obviously not in your country.

        We are talking about the concentration of alcohol, obviously.

        PS The octane number of ethyl alcohol by the motor method is 113.

          "At least on the forehead, at least on the forehead" yes
          Obtain (at a significant cost, making such a product very expensive),approximate to 100% percent concentration of ethyl alcohol - you can.
          But only close to 100% concentration, because anyway water inevitably tends to occupy some mass fraction. What actually is another problem of preserving such a substance - its hygroscopicity is high, like a drunk with a hangover lol

              Clear yes But the fact that technical urotropine (household "dry alcohol") is a derivative raw material for the production of explosives "Hexogen", this is no longer a joke.

    What will we charge and how soon will it go on sale?

    We will not charge anything. Or we will cut the money for development, and the obtained will be classified. And the military will be given units at an "abalden" price.
    And what difference does it make to a Russian-foreign serial two kege than our 1,5 kg "lacking analogs" which does not exist.

    devices in Russia before serial production is a waste of time.

    Russian and Soviet scientists did a lot of advanced things. There were leaders: radio, light bulbs, television, computers and many others. Of course, we are proud, but we run to shops for imported goods.

    But back in the days of the USSR, such "batteries" were used by the military, etc. especially in the far north ..

    So we have a huge experience in using all kinds of power plants .. Now the newest TOKOMAK is being built, there is generally clean energy ..

    "... the charger operates on a hydrogen fuel cell. Since the reaction products are hydrogen and carbon dioxide ..."

    If the source is:

    - hydrogen, then the product of the reaction is steam, water

    - hydrocarbon fuel (alcohol-containing solution), the reaction products are carbon dioxide, and water (steam)

    Most likely the second option is electricity due to the decomposition of alcohol.
    Much safer than hydrogen and the proven technology with alcohol cartridges, I have thrown it out, put a new one or refilled it from a canister.

    The hydrogen cartridge is expensive, you have to carry the used ones with you, difficulties with recharging, unsafe.

        If the Dynamo car then it would be clear where the carbon dioxide would come from, which was written about in the article. How it is obtained from hydrogen is a secret for me ...
