Important Safety Instructions
Tripp Lite’s Medical-Grade, Mobile Power Retrofit Kit includes two modules: a Power Supply Module and
a Battery Module. When the two modules are connected (and attached to a remote user interface), they
provide AC power for a variety of equipment on mobile medical carts. The following instructions refer to
the kit as a single unit as well as its component parts.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
This manual contains instructions and warnings that should be followed during the installation, operation
and storage of all Tripp Lite Medical-Grade, Mobile Power Retrofit Kits. Failure to heed these warnings
will void your warranty.
Power Supply Module & Battery Module Location Warnings
• Your Power Supply Module incorporates fusing only in the ungrounded phase conductor. IEC 60601-1
certified Power Supply Modules must be used only in health care facilities on grounded systems where
conditions of maintenance and supervision ensure that only qualified persons will service the electrical
distribution system.
• Install your Power Supply Module and Battery Module indoors, away from excess moisture or heat, dust
or direct sunlight and conductive contaminants.
• Although the Power Supply Module is designed to support computer equipment, do not install it in direct
contact with magnetic storage media, as this may result in data corruption.
• Your Power Supply Module and Battery Module are not suitable for use in the presence of a
flammable anaesthetic mixture with air, oxygen or nitrous oxide.
• For best performance, keep the indoor temperature between 32º F and 104º F (0º C and 40º C).
• Leave adequate space around all sides of the Power Supply Module and Battery Module for proper
ventilation.
Power Supply Module Connection Warnings
• Do not operate the Power Supply Module without connecting it to a Battery Module and the Remote
User Interface (RUI). The Power Supply Module will not operate (with or without utility power) until
the Battery Module and RUI are connected.
• Do not allow objects to contact the Power Supply Module’s two DC input terminals. Do not short or
bridge these terminals together. Serious personal injury or property damage could result.
• Connect your Power Supply Module directly to a properly grounded AC power outlet. Do not plug the
Power Supply Module into itself; this will damage the unit.
• Do not modify the Power Supply Module’s input connector, and do not use an adapter that would
eliminate the Power Supply Module’s ground connection.
• Any power cord connected to the AC input connector must have a hospital-grade plug.
• Connect a maximum of one power cord to the AC input connector. Do not use additional extension cords
to connect the Power Supply Module to an AC outlet.
• If the Power Supply Module receives power from a motor-powered AC generator, the generator must
provide clean, filtered, computer-grade output.
Equipment Connection Warnings
• Do not use with life support appliances if a malfunction or failure could cause failure or significantly
alter the performance of the life-support device. Do not use in the presence of a flammable anesthetic
mixture with air, oxygen or nitrous oxide.
• The Power Supply Module is designed to accept connection of equipment mounted on the same mobile
cart. Connecting equipment which is not mounted on the same cart as the Power Supply Module could
pose a safety hazard.
• Do not connect surge suppressors or extension cords to the output of your Power Supply Module. This
may damage the Power Supply Module and will void the surge suppressor and Power Supply Module
warranties.

Battery Module Warnings
• Do not allow objects to contact the Battery Module’s two DC input terminals. Do not short or bridge
these terminals together. Serious personal injury or property damage could result.
• It is normal for sparks to occur when connecting the Battery Module to the Power Supply Module.
• Due to the possibility of dangerous arcing, do not unplug the Battery Module from the Power Supply
Module while the Power Supply Module is operating from battery power (whenever the cart is mobile
and the Power Supply Module is not plugged into a live utility wall outlet).
• Your Battery Module does not require routine maintenance. Do not open your Battery Module for any
reason. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. The batteries in the Battery Module will eventually
wear out and be unable to provide adequate backup times. Internal battery replacement must be
performed by factory authorized service personnel. Because batteries present a risk of electrical shock
and burn from high short-circuit current, service personnel should observe proper precautions. Unplug
the Battery Module before performing battery replacement. Do not short or bridge battery terminals with
any object. Use tools with insulated handles. Remove metal objects such as watches and rings before
working with batteries. Do not open batteries. Replace batteries only with sealed lead-acid batteries of
the same number, type, voltage and amp-hour capacity. Contact Tripp Lite for details.
• Tripp Lite offers additional replacement Battery Modules (model #: BP12V82). Contact Tripp Lite
for details.
• The Battery Module’s internal batteries are recyclable. Refer to local codes for disposal requirements, or
in the USA only call 1-800-SAV-LEAD or 1-800-8-BATTERY (1-800-8-228-8379) or visit www.rbrc.com
for recycling information. Do not dispose of the batteries in a fire.
• If connecting a replacement Battery Module to the Power Supply Module, the Battery Module must have
the same voltage as the Power Supply Module. Use only Tripp Lite Battery Modules
(model #: BP12V82) with the Power Supply Module.
