  • Reason
    Within the framework of our market and product surveillance activities, we have become aware of cases in which the battery runtimes of the optional p8500 power supply unit with the infinity workstation critical care (evita infinity v500) were cut unexpectedly short. the batteries were prematurely depleted despite the device displaying a sufficient charge status. the “battery depleted” alarm was not given in all cases five minutes before the battery was totally depleted, as is specified. once the batteries were totally depleted, the devices each gave the correct alarm to indicate the power failure.
