Lithium-Ion Batteries Make Tripp Lite’s New Medical-Grade SmartPro UPS Systems Lighter and More Resilient

Lithium-Ion UPS Line Increases the Longevity and Mobility of Power Protection in Healthcare Settings

Chicago (PRWeb) June 14, 2019 -- Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power and connectivity solutions, has made power protection for healthcare equipment easier to manage with new UPS systems in its SmartPro® series. These models contain lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, a class of lithium-ion technology that weighs 60% less and offers greater longevity than equivalent lead-acid batteries. They are UL 60601-1 compliant for safe use in patient care vicinities and ideal for mobile hospital equipment that connects to AC power intermittently.

The lithium-ion batteries in these UPS systems accommodate 10,000 charge cycles (compared to 500 over the lifetime of a comparable lead-acid battery), making them a game-changing addition to mobile hospital cart applications.

“Cycle counts mount faster in hospitals than in most other applications,” said Jim Folk, Tripp Lite’s Director of Healthcare Solutions. “The daily charging and recharging of carts will wear down a lead-acid battery faster. Also, a battery that is 60% lighter makes for a lighter overall UPS that hospital staff will be transporting in carts or other equipment.”

Bio-med professionals who are tired of the maintenance demands of their lead-acid battery UPS systems will appreciate the simpler requirements from these models, including built-in battery current control. All models have the support of a 5-year limited warranty.

Key Features of Tripp Lite's Medical-Grade Lithium-Ion UPS Systems:

  • Longer lifespan and more charge/discharge cycles (10,000) than equivalent lead-acid batteries
  • LiFePO4 batteries perform more safely than other types of lithium-ion batteries
  • Configurable audible alarm to minimize alarm fatigue
  • UL 60601-1-compliant when plugged into a hospital-grade outlet
  • 60% lighter than equivalent lead-acid batteries
  • Models available from 700 VA to 1 kVA capacity
  • Surge protection and automatic voltage regulation (AVR)
  • 5-year warranty
