Mark Gaugenmaier - Battery Development Engineer
In 2011 Mark Gaugenmaier started working at Epec Engineered Technologies in the Battery Division as a Battery Development Engineer. Mark works closely with the Contract Design Engineer who designs new custom Battery Packs for per the application of the customer. He is responsible for developing and creating all the initial assembly and test documentation for the projects, conduct Design Verification Testing and initial battery cycle testing, build and test prototypes and ship them to our customers for their evaluation, and most of the RMA Failure Analysis work on any Battery Pack returns from our customers. Additionally, Mark conducts First Article Inspections on new battery packs that will be produced in our factory in China. Mark Gaugenmaier graduated with honors from A.C.C. in Littleton Co with an Associate’s Degree in Electronics.

It is important to be aware that certain applications will have battery packs that may be exposed to corrosive elements such as acidic, salt, and on occasion conductive substances and fluids. Over time this type of exposure can slowly corrode the PCBA, components, and solder joints. This type of corrosion can cause premature failure, short circuits, and or dangerous conditions that could lead to fire or even an explosion.

When building a lithium-ion battery pack, there will always be some sort of protection circuitry necessary that will safely separate the cells from the external connections. The protection may be as simple as a pair of charge and discharge Field Effect Transistors (FETs) with voltage and current detectors, or as complicated as adding firmware controlled fuel gauging and secondary protection.
