LET OUR ENERGY POWER YOUR SUCCESS
Introduction to the industry
The Health and Personal Safety industry provides smaller, portable applications that protects the user. The main markets that this industry provides for are the medical industry, construction, the military, fire and police, and other industries where an individual may be in danger of physical harm that can be prevented by a smaller, portable item, such as a respirator. Companies in these markets must comply with stringent regulations such as NiOSH, which are intended to ensure delivery of high-quality products on a continued consistent basis.
Reliability and compact design are two of the most important factors when designing custom battery packs for health and personal safety applications.
Take a PAPR respirator for medical professionals. If the battery pack of that respirator fails, then the individual wearing the respirator may be exposed to harmful diseases.
The custom battery packs that we manufacture are also designed to be as compact and lightweight as possible as with respirators such as these, the battery pack will have to remain on the person without hindering their ability to work effectively.
Examples of battery-powered equipment used in the industry
Powered Air Personal Respirators (PAPR)
Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)
Hearing Protection Equipment
Motorized Patient Stretchers
How we can help
Our development process aims to understand the specifics of your application and the goals of your new product. Pain points for the product and the circumstances it must perform in as well as benefits for your operation (design lifetime, supply chain, quality etc) are all possible to support when considering the battery design and components to use. We will consider your specific requirements for the battery (electrical performance, mechanical requirements and so on) and then design around that for you.
We often work on maximising battery lifetime to extend the usability of the device in the field. We will then test the battery to guarantee that it can survive whatever the product will reasonably endure during its lifetime, ensuring longevity and reliability
Some projects require that we deliver state-of-the-art battery management and communications with the host device for the very latest in health and personal safety technology.
We also prioritise our component selection with regard to availability as well as quality. This is done with 100% full transparency to ensure that the final design can be in production with no component end of life or bill of material changes for many years to reduce or eliminate redesign efforts within a product life cycle.
