At Disruptive Technologies, we prioritize safety and compliance in shipping our sensors containing batteries to our customers. Here's a concise look at how we follow regulations and ensure secure transport:
Battery types: Our CO2 sensors come with standard AA alkaline batteries for convenience upon delivery. All other sensors, including Motion sensors, feature lithium batteries for extended power and stability. For additional details, please refer to the specific product datasheet.
Notably, Cloud Connectors do not use batteries.
Battery Regulations and Transportation Compliance: Our lithium metal batteries fall under UN 3091, with strict adherence to Packaging Instruction PI 970 Section II for button cell batteries and PI 967 for other batteries. Button cells in equipment are exempt from labeling, but all other IATA PI970 requirements apply.
- For land transport, we follow Special Provision 188, which exempts certain packages from marking requirements.
- In air transport, we follow the International Air Transportation Association's (IATA's) Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) and the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) rules, without the need for dangerous goods labels or declarations. These guidelines ensure safe shipping and minimize transit risks.
For detailed information, refer to the International Air Transport Association's "Lithium Battery Guidance Document".
