Phoenix Multiplus now available from Snaptec Australia will be supporting the main X-treme Everest Expedition in March 2007.
The goal of the expedition, a research project is to make the first ever measurement of the level of oxygen in human blood at high altitude.
The findings of the research will be used to develop the treatment that is provided for intensive care patients who, in common with high altitude mountaineers, have a low level of oxygen in their blood. The project involves over 200 volunteers undergoing physical and medical tests at altitude as they climb the summit of Everest.
Sensitive medical exercise and analytical equipment is a key part of the process, which requires a clean and reliable power source.
The MultiPlus inverter/charger combination, used with portable generators and batteries, will ensure that power requirements are fully satisfied.
The MultiPlus was the first choice for the expedition because of the robust construction, compact dimensions and unrivalled reputation for dependability in demanding circumstances. Initial trials have proven that the right choice was made.
Providing sophisticated battery charging from the generator and switching seamlessly to deliver inverter power if the generator supply was interrupted, the MultiPlus assured power supply at all times. The coninuation of power supply is of utmost importance during tests which are expensive to repeat if power fails.
The MultiPlus inverter/charger is the product of choice in independent power applications as diverse as luxury yachts, specialist vehicles, power supply in remote locations and power back-up for critical systems such as traffic lights, emergency telephones on motorways or fire protection in public buildings.
