How to Store your Batteries using a Cadex Analyzer

Medset is a proud to be Canadian distributor of CADEX products. An award-winning company, Cadex Electronics has been in business for over 40 years. Did you know the word Cadex is derived from CADmium-EXerciser?

Different battery chemistries have specific requirements for storage. When storing batteries, temperature is important but also the SoC (state of charge) should be considered. Following are a few basic pointers on battery storage:

Lead acid: How to store a Lead Acid Battery

Fully charge before storing

– Partial charge causes sulfation
– Self-discharge increases with heat
– Topping-charge every 6 monthsUse the Charge Program with the Cadex C7X00 C-Series Analyzer

NiCd, NiMH: How to store a Nickle based Battery

No preparation needed

– Can be stored charged or empty
– Needs exercise after long storage

Use the Prime Program with the Cadex C7X00 C-Series Analyzer

Li-ion: How to store a Lithium Ion Battery

Store at 30-60% SoC (State of Charge)

– Charge empty Li-ion to 3.80V/cell
– Discharge full Li-ion to 3.75V/cell (3.80V/cell relates to ~50% SoC
– Top-charge every 6 months

Use the Custom Program with the Cadex C7X00 C-Series Analyzer to bring the batteries to a specific SoC level (this works also for recharging after a while).

Medset CFO (Chief Furry Officer)

 

 

Introducing Maisie….a 10 lb mini golden doodle pup. Maisie comes to work each day at our Burlington facility. Her job is to greet visitors (which she happily does) and to not get into things (she tries).  She is a great to have around our busy office – and even though she really likes to sleep, she will rise to the occasion if someone wants to give her a pet or a treat.

AAMI eXchange 2022

We are pleased to be attending the upcoming 2022 AAMI eXchange (June 3-6) in San Antonio, Texas. A global health technology event, AAMI is always a terrific annual opportunity for us to connect face-to-face with some of our suppliers and customers and to learn more about current and upcoming cutting-edge healthcare technology. The eXchange is back to “in-person” after a hiatus due to Covid restrictions. We look forward to meeting up with everyone!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Many of our customers have had the pleasure of working with Bill regarding technical and product support, quotations, or just general troubleshooting. He also manages our inventory (a challenging job these days!). Hailing originally from Newfoundland, Bill has been with Medset for over 17 years.

Bill’s (temporary!) green beard is a nod to his Irish heritage – HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY!!!

Medset – The Evolution of a Canadian Company

How we have grown! Over 30 years ago, Medset started out as a company focused on the needs of biomedical departments within the Canadian healthcare community. Our three main product lines were biomedical test equipment, batteries for medical applications, and specialty bulbs.

Early on, we added patient monitoring accessories and power management to further meet the demands of busy biomed departments and to provide customers with more options. Through diligent research, we were able to source quality ECG leadwires, cables, NIBP cuffs, hospital grade power cords and of course the ever-popular PowerMate 60601. To further round out these product lines, we started including SPO2 sensors, NIBP connectors and IV pump repair parts. Our longevity has enabled us to build, over time, an expansive part # list – ranging from common, regularly requested parts to much more obscure parts needed to keep older equipment operational.

Streamlined Repair Service was added next: FMT/Ultrasound transducers, pumphead mech repairs and test equipment repairs and calibrations. Safety compliance in healthcare is critical and our ongoing relationships with ISO 13485 certified/Health Canada Registered manufacturers enabled Medset to establish cost-effective turnkey repair solutions. This service is both economical and a time-saver – customers just send repairs to us with an RMA # and we ensure a quality, compliant, and guaranteed repair with our manufacturers.

And now current day: Biomedical Test Equipment, Batteries, Specialty Bulbs, Patient Monitoring Accessories, Power Management, and Repair Program – over the years we have evolved to meet our customer’s needs – and we won’t stop! Medset is committed to continue to grow and respond to the ever-changing, dynamic, biomedical world as the industry continues to revolutionize. Thank you for reading our story. As always, we are a phone call or Quick Connect away to answer any of your technical questions or help with solutions.

Support a Great Cause!

Everyone in the healthcare field works hard every day, but the last two years have been a tremendous strain both physically and mentally. Many individuals have stepped up in their own way to try and ease the burden. Marc d’Entremont, a biomedical engineer technologist in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, has released a song “I Did it For You” – with all proceeds generously being donated to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation’s Healthcare Heroes initiative. Thank you for sharing, Marc – your talent is amazing!

“I Did it for You” is available to stream or purchase through all the main streaming services. Below are a few links, along with an article in Discover Moosejaw:

Value-Added Service: Biomedical Test Equipment Calibration & Repairs

Have you received a notification from Medset regarding a manufacturer-recommended calibration for test equipment purchased from us?

Our reminder notifications have been well-received by many of our busy customers (note customers are easily able to opt out of this reminder service upon request) The reminder allows customers the option of Medset facilitating a turn-key calibration service direct from the manufacturer for Pronk Technologies, BC Group, TSI, and IMT Analytics Biomedical test equipment. This is a cost-only, value-added service we provide, that streamlines the sometimes-challenging process of managing OEM calibrations with international manufacturers.

Email sales@medset.ca with the make/model/serial number of your device to receive a calibration price and an RMA number.  Equipment repairs are on an as-needed basis and a quote will be provided from the manufacturer for your approval. For more information on equipment calibrations/repairs contact customer service.
