Medical treatment cart with a built-in ACL OP-PC system

The Leipzig-based ACL GmbH is rolling out a medical treatment cart with a built-in PC system as its contribution to new products at the MEDICA 2005 Fair (hall 16, stand H31). This is the first mobile computer system available without cables in the patient environment that functions as long as 24 hours without interruption. ACL has made this possible by coming up with a specially developed modular system of OP-PC, high-performance rechargeable battery modules, a battery management system and a stainless steel rolling cart. The built-in ACL OP-PC is extremely compact with a special power-saving function while still being a full-value PC system based on Intel Celeron M or Intel Pentium M processors. This noiseless system is available with a memory function up to 1 GB RAM and the PC system is connected to the network with a built-in radio LAN module. All of the system's cables are covered. Applying state-of-the-art rechargeable battery technologies delivers these extremely long unplugged operating periods of 24 hours without interruption while keeping the weight of the overall system to a minimum. Rechargeable batteries satisfy fire protection requirements for medical environments and the battery management system developed by ACL means its capacity can be expanded over several stages. The charging state displays built into every rechargeable battery mean you're always on top of the available remaining capacity. Rechargeable batteries can also be replaced during operation along with warnings and automatically controlled system shutdown if the battery reserve is low. You can also get component parts in a kit for completing existing rolling cart models of other manufacturers and OEM versions at request. Our medical treatment cart system is in conformity with DIN EN 60601-1, DIN EN 60601-1-1 and DIN EN 60601-1-2 and it will be available from the first quarter of 2006.
