Global medical battery manufacturer Ultralife Corporation’s URB12400-U1-SMB batteries are now qualified for use with medical cart inverters from Tripp Lite and Ametek Powervar. With this compatibility, medical cart manufacturers and hospital equipment specifiers that were considering traditional lead acid batteries can now benefit from the latest lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) technology. The 12.8V 38.4Ah (492Wh) URB12400-U1-SMB, also referred to as the “Smart U1,” was developed as a direct replacement for existing LiFePO4 batteries and sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries currently used in medical carts. While SLA batteries are known to poorly perform in cyclic applications, Ultralife’s Smart U1 battery can be fully charged and discharged more than 2,000 times. The battery’s advanced Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) chemistry which is renowned for its reliability and safety has been combined with Ultralife’s Smart Circuit technology which works in conjunction with the inverter to provide the cart user with accurate real-time data such as available capacity, remaining runtime and battery health. The battery also actively protects itself against abnormal use so cannot be accidentally over-charged or over-discharged.
