Shurite Systems, a division of Prime Technology, LLC of North Branford, CT, introduces the
DC power management system, a full scale DC management system that combines charging and
monitoring functions for battery powered applications. The accuracy of the power system is
crucial for key industries, such as emergency medical carts, where precise charging information
is of the utmost importance.
The DC Power Monitor provides crucial power source information required in a mobile working
and computing environment, thus enhancing the marketability of DC equipment. The monitor is
capable of completing diagnostics for troubleshooting and evaluating warranty claims as well as
automatically scheduling power supply and battery maintenance. Additionally, the monitor is
capable of creating event log spreadsheets and charge/discharge curves. Event logs are useful
for both keeping track of the battery system history and making changes in the product’s use in
order to extend and maintain proper operation. The system is designed to incorporate specific
curves for battery manufacturers and chemistry which helps to prolong the duration of the
battery system by accurately predicting the life of the battery and charge time. Conveniently, the
system can be adapted to be used with any power platform.
The DC Charger is a 10 or 20 Amp, 3 stage, multi-profile, precision, multi-chemistry battery
charger that utilizes a microprocessor. The charger provides full communication with the
aforementioned DC Power Monitor and the system allows the end user to receive data for
evaluation via a USB port. A computer program is supplied to the end user specifically for this
function. The DC Charger has built in A/D Inputs that monitor and control battery charging
voltage and current, while also compensating for load current during charge. Furthermore, the
charger has a driver that will support the standard indicator/switch functions of a customer
provided fuel board. The algorithms used to charge the batteries can be uniquely designed for the
specific chemistry as well as each manufacturer’s features. This option to fully customize the
unit allows for complete optimization of the charging system.
The combination of the DC Power Monitor and Charger provides a robust and unique system,
capable of full battery power charging, management, and data capture/logging. The system is
designed to operate as a single source solution for DC power management and is UL60601
approved for all medical applications.
