Developed specifically to use Ultralife’s X5 Power System, the Karta system allows multiples of the new carts to be compactly nested together with their power systems attached, reducing the amount of storage space by 35%. Using the X5’s 120VAC, 60Hz output, these innovative carts can power laptops, all in one systems, and mini PCs used in hospital and other medical settings. The carts can operate in various modes, either plugged into the location’s AC main system or when AC mains are not available or convenient, powered by two external hot-swappable batteries (276Wh each). The hot-swappable power system allows batteries to be removed and replaced, while maintaining temporary power to the IT systems on the cart.

Both the cart and power system are built from high quality aluminum, with Karta also having steel components, to ensure durability and ease-of-sterilization. The batteries can be removed from the power system with a single hand and can be connected in either orientation to ensure fast and smooth operation. The cart itself is equipped with adjustable height settings and high-quality castors for seamless mobility, alongside a range of customisable accessories to fit various clinical workflows.

“For the past three years, the X5 Power System has proven to be extremely popular at the HIMSS show” said Eric Lind, Senior Vice President of Sales at Ultralife. “It seems only natural that we launch the complete cart and power solution with our partner Karta at this year’s event. We can also discuss with visitors to our booth the X5-LITE Power Solution, specifically designed for pole/mobile carts where the computer or tablet system only requires USB-C or USB-A power.”

Attendees can also learn more about Ultralife’s other medical power solutions, which includes pre-engineered batteries for ventilators, x-ray and imaging equipment, non-rechargeable cells for remote patient monitoring or asset tracking, as well custom battery design and manufacturing services for specialised needs.
