Power Protection Company Introduces Latest Product
It’s bad enough losing power at home or at work, but hearts are bound to be racing if the power goes out while at the hospital for a doctor’s visit. Talk about an already tense moment becoming even worse.
POWERVAR Inc., a leading supplier of power conditioning and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) for instruments used in hospitals, analytical laboratories, clinical laboratories and other healthcare technology, recently announced that it will be introducing another product to help prevent panic attacks in the medical world caused by power outages. Today, the company announced the release of its latest power protection product, the Mobile Power Manager (MPM).
MPM is a medical-grade AC power supply designed to fit an industry standard mobile cart providing hospitals the flexibility and mobility to keep crucial equipment powered up while moving throughout their facility, according to POWERVAR.
“The Mobile Power Manager is a design extension of our medical grade UPM Series,” said Tom Gornick, POWERVAR’s vice president of sales, in a statement. “Customers in the healthcare industry have requested a standard UL 60601 listed AC power supply which can be customized, supports multiple battery chemistries and is priced competitively. Our MPM system meets all of these industry demands.”
“POWERVAR is the leading supplier of medical power supplies to the healthcare market, so it only seems natural that we expand our UPM product line to meet the requirements of today’s mobile healthcare market,” added POWERVAR’s President and CEO George Lannert.
The global provider offers power quality solutions to the healthcare, analytical laboratory, retail POS, digital graphics, semiconductor manufacturing, banking and gaming industries. The primary products include transformer-based medical power conditioners and medical UPS.
While some companies are examining ways to bring UPSs to the healthcare industries, others are honing in on another place that sees many individuals each day – schools.
According to Minuteman, a company devoted to producing the industry's most reliable power technology products, educational institutions are not immune to power outages and being able to gain access to that data through a UPS following an outage is just as important as in a hospital or a bank.
“Spikes, surges, brownouts, and blackouts have no conscience when, or where, they strike,” according to Minuteman. “Classrooms, labs, and administrative offices all are vulnerable and are guaranteed to be subjected to problems throughout the year.”
The Texas-based company offers a variety of education power protection products including the MMS surge suppressor, which has rotating receptacles; the ENspire, which has six outlets, three that provide battery support along with spike and surge protection and three with spike and surge protection only; and the entrust, which can be placed under a desk.
