Accutronics will be sharing insight into smart batteries for healthcare applications at this year’s Med-Tech Innovation Expo, at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, from April 26–27, 2017. The company will be exhibiting its Entellion range of pre-engineered smart medical batteries, as well as a selection of batteries for medical carts and wearable devices from its parent company Ultralife, from stand 29A in Ericsson hall-one for both days of the event.
Ultralife Corporation has strengthened its Thin Cell range of primary (non-rechargeable) lithium manganese dioxide (Li-MnO2) pouch-cell batteries. The higher energy density and slim form factor of Ultralife’s Thin Cell technology makes it ideal for use in the next generation of internet-connected and wearable devices in sectors including medical, banking, highways, logistics, warehousing and security.
Ultralife is set to enrich the U1 lead acid battery market with the launch of its new 492Wh Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) smart battery. The URB12400-U1-SMB battery, which features accurate fuel gauging and integrated safety circuitry, is designed to replace and improve on traditional sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries in applications such as medical carts, wheelchairs, scooters, robotics & delivery bots or uninterrupted power supply (UPS) systems.
The medical market is a challenging environment, and understandably so, with people's lives on the line it is essential that medical practitioners can rely on their equipment to perform under pressure.
The Inspired Energy battery, NJ1020HP, was designed many years ago when Nickel Metal Hydride batteries (NiMH) were the norm and Lithium ion technology was just getting off the ground. Yet the NJ1020HP, used in Phillips M3 and M4 (M3046A) patient monitors, continues to provide outstanding performance for devices and remains extremely popular worldwide.
Here we provide a brief overview of Smart Batteries, Smart Chargers, and the System Management Bus, and their advantages as power solutions for portable products…
“A new industrial revolution”. If I told you that’s how French President François Hollande recently described a form of technology, what would you think he was talking about — Robots, planes or perhaps driverless cars? In fact, Monsieur Hollande was referring to a new lithium battery plant. Batteries are big news in France and they’re constantly evolving. In this piece, Michele Windsor, direct sales and marketing manager of professional battery manufacturer Accutronics, looks at the key features of the French battery industry.
When you think of Germany, what do you think of? Most people will usually say football, beer, and BMWs. What most people won't say is medical technology (medtech). Despite that, Germany’s medtech sector is by far the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. It’s home to some of the largest Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and presents a wide range of opportunities for technology experts. Here, Michele Windsor, direct sales and marketing manager of professional battery manufacturer Accutronics looks at the key features of the German battery industry.
