What is the difference between the standalone systems and the hard-wire systems?
The hard-wire system is intended to be connected to the building wiring. The input gets fed from the main electric panel and the systems output
breaker is directly fed to various outlet branch circuits, equipment and lights that are intended to have backup support.
Are these battery backup systems only 120 volts or are they available at 220 volts?
Both 120 and 220-volt input and output voltages are available. This varies with the model number. If the building only has
208 volts - a 3 phase, a transformer may be required to boost the voltage from 208 to 120/240.
Can more than one refrigerator or freezer be plugged into the same power system?
These battery backup systems can supply power to more that one refrigerator or freezer. The system would have to be sized to accommodate the sum
of all the appliances of which it is intended to support.
Are 3 phase battery backup systems available?
Medi-Products does not manufacturer a 3 phase power system but we do have access to suppliers who do. Three phase battery backup systems have to be designed,
engineered and installed properly, this is normally done by the manufacturer or an electrical engineering firm.
What standards does it meet?
All of our emergency power systems are custom built and assembled using only UL approved components and to nationally recognized standards.
There are times, however, when the completed system in its entirety has to be inspected and approved by national standards testing lab.
Medi-Products has a lot of experience working with these agencies and special inspection labels can be accommodated upon request.
Can the system and batteries be monitored via an internet connection?
For certain models, an optional remote system monitoring is available via an internet connection. This option will allow the users to
remotely monitor battery voltages and system status.
How do you know when the batteries are getting low?
Medi-Products battery backup systems come with a low battery alarm which makes an audible sound when the batteries drop below a certain voltage.
How much electrolyte do the batteries contain?
The VRLA storage batteries we use contain a small amount of electrolyte. Here is a link to the
for the batteries we use.
What is the difference between Reassurance carts A, B and C?
For the mobile systems, there are 3 cart sizes available. The purpose of this is to accommodate more backup battery capacity.
There are many variations within each cart size, therefore, pricing is not reflected by the size, of the cart but rather by the capacity of the system.
Can the mobile system be configured for hardwiring?
The answer is yes. It is not common but our mobile systems can be configured for hardwire applications. This is often done while replacing another out of
date system in an existing medical practice. To do so we configure the mobile system with male and female twist-lock cord caps, so the system can connect to the
building wiring thru twist lock receptacles.
How much heat do these battery backup systems put out?
The heat output varies on the conditions and mode of which the unit is operating under. These are some estimates of heat dissipation of dynamic values
based on some specific extreme conditions of which the power system would be operating under:
| Full Load - Rated Wattage
|| 660 W
| 0 Watts
|| 25 W
| @ Full Bulk Charge Mode
|| 425 W
