Gamma knife surgical system
A surgical ”gamma-knife” requires exceptionally high power availability. Especially crucial is power for being able to remove the patient out of the unit under all conditions, including total loss of external power (as hospital standby UPS).
Powerbox designed a custom power system tailored to the application, including battery back-up and redundant power supplies to secure battery charge.
Fast-tracked design enabled on-time launch of the system and to date, after 8 years in the field, there is not a single fault reported or unit claimed.
