The MOVES® SLC™ Power System

The MOVES® SLC™ operates on either rechargeable batteries (DC) or AC power. The power range of the MOVES® SLC™ power supply is as follows:

  • Input: 100–240 VAC, 50–60 Hz, 5.5 A max
  • Output: 28 VDC, 14.3 A max

Power System Details

  • The MOVES® SLC™ houses up to two lithium polymer batteries. MOVES® SLC™ will operate on a set of 2 batteries for approximately 2.5 hours minimum.
  • Under typical clinical use (ventilator and monitors running, concentrator on for 30 seconds / off for 90 seconds, assuming no leaks), MOVES® SLC™ should operate at least 4 hours on a set of 2 batteries.
  • Battery run time is highly dependent on the use of the oxygen concentrator or suction.
  • Power is supplied to the MOVES® SLC™ from an AC source via the MOVES® SLC™ power supply and battery charger, which provides 28 VDC at up to 14.3A.
  • Batteries installed in the system are charged automatically when external AC power is connected. The system’s batteries should take no more than 2.5 hours to fully charge when the system is idle.
  • Batteries can be charged while the system is running although charge times may be longer.
  • Each battery is individually hot swappable, meaning it can be replaced while the MOVES® SLC™ operates on the remaining battery.

Note: The battery charge level may not appear to increase for approximately 3 hours. This is normal for the battery’s initial charge and after extended periods without use.

System Auto Resume on Power Loss

If the system has been shut down for a period of time less than or equal to three (3) minutes, the system will auto resume using the system settings configuration prior to shutdown. It is assumed that power was lost temporarily.

If the system has been shut down for a period of time greater than three (3) minutes but less than 30 minutes, the system will ask the user if the patient is new or continuing.

  • Selecting YES will return the system settings to default values
  • Selecting NO will keep the last system settings used.
  • NO should only be selected if the operator is aware of the last system settings configuration, or the operator should review the settings on the Setup, Alarm Limits, Alarm ON/OFF and Advanced screens.

Battery Status Icons

The Battery status icon shows the charge of the two system batteries individually and indicates if external power is connected. The batteries are drawn beside each other and labeled A and B. Charge is shown by filling in each chamber accordingly, indicated by 5 charge segments.

When an alarm associated with system power is active, the area behind the battery status icons is highlighted with a red background if highest associated alarm is High priority. Otherwise, a yellow highlight is used for Medium/Low alarm priority. When the system is connected to external power, a plug icon is drawn above the battery icons.

Note the following:

  • Each battery is individually hot swappable.
  • If a battery has no charge, no segments will be shown.
  • If a battery is not present, no segments and no battery outline will be shown. If MOVES® SLC™ is evaluating a battery’s status, a question mark will be drawn over that battery’s status area.
  • If a battery’s status cannot be determined, a fault icon will be drawn over the battery’s status area.
  • If a battery is charging, a ‘lightning bolt’ will be drawn over the battery icon and its segments.
  • If the power status is not known, a large fault icon will be displayed.
  • The color of the segments for a battery depends on the number of segments shown.
  • If one segment is shown, the color is red; if two or three, the color is orange; if more than three segments are shown, the color is green. This matches the color of the top most LED on the battery charge indicator on the battery itself.
