Positives


Self contained unit so no enclosures required. Integrated power meter with audible alarm. Built in inverter for AC output.

Negatives


Unit come in two main pieces which are a little bulky and odd to mount properly. Requires 3rd party mounting brackets for the enclosures. Fixed power only so cart must remain stationary when charging the batteries.

The solution comes as two self enclosed units, one for the power system and one for the batteries. There is also a separate remote power meter for easy viewing of remaining power. […]

The TDI Medipower is a fixed power system providing AC power. The system is capable of supporting both SLA batteries or Lithium batteries. The solution comes as two self enclosed units, one for the power system and one for the batteries. There is also a separate remote power meter for easy viewing of remaining power. The dual enclosure system is a little bulky however and presents challenges for integrating it cleanly onto a cart. A custom bracket must be designed or purchased from a 3rd party to mount the enclosures to each cart. TDI does not provide any custom GUI or fleet management software, however a USB connection is available and if connected to a windows based PC it can read the power details using standard windows drivers. Battery power will be displayed within windows just like a laptop. An API is also available if an end user wants to create custom software. The solution is fixed which means that the cart must remain stationary during charging cycles which can take up to 3 hours. Integration is not very difficult as the solution is self contained and simply needs to be mounted and cabled. TDI does not provide any onsite service so if a repair is required the solution must be removed and sent in for repair. Overall the TDI solution is bulkier than some of the hotswap solutions, but has superiour integration capabilities compared to many of the fixed power offerings.
