UL 2054-Certified Battery Delivers Unsurpassed Battery Life and Capacity for Mobile Medical Devices in Critical Healthcare Environments
SHELTON, CT, JANUARY 29, 2012 – Anton/Bauer® MPS, a Vitec Group company and a premier provider of mobile power systems for the medical device industry, is pleased to announce that its new DIONIC® 270 battery, which has received UL 2054 certification, is now shipping. The robust 270Wh Li-Ion battery is the industry’s highest-performing swappable battery, delivering up to 10 amps of power by utilizing components originally designed for military operations.
The DIONIC 270 is available as part of the company’s patented HotSwap™ product line that can be found in hospitals throughout the U.S. and Europe as they power mobile medical devices including workstations-on-wheels, medical carts, patient monitoring systems and other critical care devices.
“We are pleased to deliver this innovative battery to the medical device community,” says Patrick Ney, vice president, Anton/Bauer MPS. The DIONIC 270 is a powerful addition to our already renowned product offerings as it allows our customers to use a single battery while maintaining long equipment run times. When a hospital utilizes higher-power consuming devices or needs extraordinarily long run times, an additional DIONIC 270 can be added to provide a total of 540 WH of capacity. That’s an enormous amount of available power that provides flexibility unlike any product on the market.”
When it comes to quality, safety, durability and reliability, Anton/Bauer MPS is second-to-none. “We partner with the top battery cell manufacturers in the world to design the highest quality components and demand that strict tolerances are met,” says Ney. “By combining high-quality components with Anton/Bauer’s durable IMPAC® case, customers receive batteries that consistently deliver power to a hospital’s most demanding equipment. The end-result is a safe product that works for years.”
Additionally, the DIONIC’s recent UL 2054 Certification further exemplifies Anton/Bauer MPS’s commitment to high-quality and safety. Compliance with UL 2054 enables mobile equipment manufacturers to declare compliance with IEC 60601-1, the general safety and performance standard for medical electrical equipment, for their mobile or portable equipment.
