Mobile Cart Batteries – Performance and Life

March 31, 2015

The Power System and Battery technology is vital to the efficiency of your Healthcare process using any Computer on Wheels.  Having to plug in because the current battery only lasts 4 hours per shift can slow the daily process.  In today’s Healthcare System, the process is fast, effective and designed to reduce errors.  That requires good tools – Computer on Wheels with great Power Systems and Batteries.  That is exactly why Metro is the leader in Battery Life with their Mobile Cart line.

How long will the battery last each day?  Will it last a full shift?

The batteries on your Computer on Wheels should last a full shift or better.  With partial charging during breaks or lunch, the cart will stay topped off all day.  Metro Batteries last 12+ hours on a full charge.  

How long will the battery last before replacement?

Lithium batteries are like the batteries your laptop uses.  Metro offers two Lithium Battery solutions….a Mid-Grade (to compete with other manufacturers) and a High-Grade.  The Metro Mid-Grade Lithium will last 2500 cycles before having to be replaced.  The Metro High-Grade Lithium Nano (LiNano) is rated for 5000 cycles and in testing, surpassed AccessPoint Battery Replacement10,000 cycles.  That is 8 to 10 years before your Health System has to replace these batteries from Metro.  Longer Shift Life and Longer Battery Life is the best solution for your environment.

Sure, other manufacturers have Lithium Batteries in their Mobile Carts, however, their Lithium technology is the same as the Metro Mid-Grade Lithium.   Mid-Grade batteries have to be replaced at 2500 cycles which is a costly expense a few years down the road.  Why would you settle for mid-grade when LiNano from Metro is available now?  LiNano is definitely superior in life span and costs much less in the long run.

No one but Metro has the HIGH-GRADE LiNano Battery proven with over 5000 cycles!

How long to recharge?

The Power System in Metro Computer on Wheels charges fully in two hours. We know that in some Heathcare Environments a fanless option is needed, the OR, for example. Our Power System is switchable to fanless and the charge time is increased to 3 hours in those cases.

Metro LogoA Little History about Metro:  they are owned by Emerson…the world class company we all know.  In fact, they also own Liebert, the Information Technology Data Center large scale Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) and Power Distribution Unit (PDU) manufacturer/provider.  Emerson brings the Liebert power knowledge to Metro. With Liebert know how, software and technology behind your Computer on Wheels battery, why would you choose anything else?

COW Batteries – Flo 1760 Lithium Battery Leads the Field with their Li Nano – They Simply Outlast Other Lithium COW Batteries

June 26, 2012

Is the title above a BOLD CLAIM?…Not so. Let’s see why.

Flo Heathcare is a division of Metro, a subsidiary of Emerson Electric Corporation. Everyone has heard of Emerson as they are a Fortune 100 company. They are very well known within the Information Services field with Data Center Power solutions.
See more about Emerson here: http://www.emerson.com/en-US/Pages/Default.aspx

Why wouldn’t you trust them with the BEST BATTERY SOLUTION for COWs or WOWs?

The Flo Healthcare Li-Nano Battery Solution is rated for 5000+ cycles…twice that of Rubbermaid cart Li Batteries! That is a 4 1/2 year life using the cart 365 days a year on all 3 shifts. It comes with a 3 year warranty too. The 5000 cycle is a conservative claim as they have now surpassed 8000 cycles in current testing. This almost eliminates power related problems and removes them from Information Services Support for 5 years or longer. Other manufacturer’s COWs may be less expensive up front but having to replace batteries twice as often clearly makes Flo Healthcare the clear cut winner in ROI with Point of Care carts! You would be replacing batteries with Rubbermaid COW before the 3 year warranty runs out on the Flo L-Nano!

Flo Healthcare Mobile Carts are made to last a long time and why should you waste precious time and resources servicing the batteries? REDUCE YOUR PROBLEM TICKETS BY ELIMINATING BATTERY PROBLEMS.

Don’t forget that ASR has batteries for your Flo Healthcare 1750 and 1760 COWs too! We have NiMH batteries and charging Units at GREAT PRICES. See our previous blog about batteries here: https://asr4u.wordpress.com/2012/04/24/flo-healthcare-cow-or-wow-batteries-mpe-7800-or-mpe-7801/
