UPS systems for medical use support mobile treatment and patient transport

CHICAGO, 28 April 2020 / PRNewswire / – Tripp Lite, a leading global manufacturer of power and connectivity solutions, offers uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems for medical applications that meet the demanding requirements of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare to power the AIRVO 2, their humidifier to perform of nasal high oxygenation therapy.

Based on tests by Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, Tripp Lite’s SmartPro® SMART700HGL (120 V) and SMX700HGL (230 V) UPS systems for medical use meet the recommended specifications for powering the AIRVO 2 in mobile and portable applications . These UPS tower systems provide full insulation and reduce the cumulative leakage current of the connected equipment to less than 100 microamps. The full insulation also contributes to noise filtering and supports common mode surge protection.

The UPS systems have lithium iron phosphate batteries (LiFePO4th) to power the AIRVO 2 during patient transportation. The batteries are characterized by a significantly higher number of charging cycles than the equivalent lead acid batteries.

“Powering mobile medical devices is a fundamental part of health care,” said Jim Folk, Head of Healthcare Solutions at Tripp Lite. “Tripp Lite’s 700 VA medical UPS systems with lithium-ion batteries make it possible to transport patients with the AIRVO 2 through hospitals and long-term care facilities. The ability to power medical equipment trolleys in transport mode ensures that therapy can continue without interruption. “
