The stand will feature a number of pre-engineered smart batteries, including the CC1150 credit-card battery for handheld devices that the company launched at Compamed 2015, as well as information about Accutronics’ bespoke battery services.Rob Phillips, Sales and Marketing Director, Accutronics, commented: “We’veVolumetric Efficiency observed a clear trend for critical medical devices becoming more compact and portable in recent years. While this may offer convenience to practitioners, it presents a number of concerns for medical OEMs in regards to practical longevity and reliability.“At Compamed 2015, we launched a solution to this in the form of our CC1150 credit card smart battery. At 54mm square and 9.5mm high, the battery is designed to fit into equipment with limited space while still offering reliable power and features such as accurate fuel gauging and an active electronic protection system. The CC1150 and its sibling products, CC2300 and CC3800 are the ideal power source for the next generation of portable or wearable medical tech.“However, a more effective approach is for manufacturers to consult battery OEMs such as Accutronics at the design stage. This allows for the development of a bespoke solution that is engineered for optimum performance. It is this expertise that we will be demonstrating at Compamed 2016.”Accutronics will also be joined on the stand by representatives from Ultralife, who will be assisting with the range of Ultralife products also on display. These products include a number of pre-engineered solutions such as LiFePO4 lead acid replacement batteries, which are designed to provide enhanced cycle life for applications such as medical carts. The similar charging voltage of the Ultralife LiFePO4 batteries means they can usually be transplanted into existing lead acid applications without modification.
