The Pyxis Battery Pack is a component that is used in Medical diagnostic ultrasound imaging equipment, which uses this battery pack as a backup power source. The lithium-ion battery provides power when the AC power source is interrupted. Lithium-ion batteries last longer than conventional batteries and do not require replacement as often. The lithium-ion technology used is significantly less hazardous to the environment than the lithium metal technology used in some other batteries (such as watch batteries). This particular battery comes along with the protection circuit for detecting function of overcharge, over discharge and over voltage and thermal protection circuits as well as a SMBus for communication. This serial bus helps to read the set of battery parameters in a regular interval as part of maintenance. A thermistor present in the pack helps to ensure thermal protection, its resistance gradually varies in terms of change in temperature. The battery pack is capable of continuous charging at 14.4V and a 6000mA maximum current and it is capable of continues discharge at 12V, 20 Amp (max). It includes a polyethylene terephthalate (White) material label on top for easy identification as well to add regulatory markings.
