Battery Selection and Sturtevant Richmont Tools

There are some important things to know about battery selection and Sturtevant Richmont tools. 

We build highly durable tools with sophisticated electronics. We design circuits to be as energy efficient as possible. We are also concerned about the environment. 

Our tool and tester circuit boards are designed on the highly consistent 1.2 volt power curve provided by rechargeable NiMH batteries. Other batteries like Alkaline or Lithium batteries provide 1.5 volts in the power curve. The additional voltage will damage the circuit board. 

Please Remember These NiMH Battery Facts:

  • NiMH rechargeable batteries come in a range of mAh (milli-amp hour) ratings. 
  • The rating difference is the number of operational hours the battery will supply.
  • The higher the mAh rating, the longer the batteries last between charges.
  • High mAh rated batteries take longer to charge than low mAh rated batteries.
  • Quick chargers shorten useful battery life.
  • The trickle charger is the best way to recharge the batteries and preserve battery life.

Error Proofing Information 

Error Proofing From A Different Angle: Definition of error proofing and some observations by W. Edwards Deming.

Finding The Balance: In error proofing "one size fits no one."  To find what fits in your organization, start with the fundamental question of "How much responsibility for error proofing should be given to the tool and how much should be operator responsibility?" This section provides more on this concept.

Six Error Proofing Scenarios: Error proofing solutions all have trade offs. You can have control or you can have flexibility. Rarely do you get both. This page looks at error proofing extremes as well as the middle ground. 

How Much Are You Investing In Errors? If your current error proofing system or approach still leaves you with errors you are investing in errors, not error proofing. Error proofing is about quality and it is also very much about dollars and common sense. This pages digs into that.

Understanding The Common Centerline: Not having a common centerline is one invisible place where your error proofing approach can introduce errors instead of eliminating them. If you want to know how to calculate a common centerline and why it is important this page is for you.
