To keep their line of NB mobile powered workstations up and running 24/7, Newcastle Systems (Booth 3859) introduced the new power swap system. Consisting of a battery mounted on swivel casters that can be swapped in and out of the workstation base in less than 30 seconds, the system boosts productivity with minimal interruption to workflow, said Christine Wheeler, marketing director.

“The power swap system includes a 16 x 16 x 12 inch ventilated cabinet, cabinet handle, power cord reel holder and a digital remote meter with LED display that shares battery status,” Wheeler noted. “To recharge the battery, it simply plugs into a standard power outlet.”

With the battery system, a single workstation can power printers, computers, scales and other hardware for up to 24 hours a day—replacing up to three workstations, she added.

The company also highlighted its PowerPack series of portable AC power systems. Housed in a sealed, ventilated steel cabinet that measures 20 x 21 x14 inches, the system includes a battery, inverter, smart charger and fusing system. They operate in temperatures from 32 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit and are ideal for areas that lack another power source, such as far corners in a warehouse, dock areas and remote storage structures. Because each unit weighs between 120-160 pounds, they may be further equipped with an optional wheel-base tote system, concluded Wheeler.

ProMat 2013 is scheduled to be held January 21-24, 2013 in Chicago’s McCormick Place South. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete ProMat 2013 coverage.
