It maintains pump function while the primary power source is being exchanged. A monitor circuit displays charge capacity, and alarms for low charge, accidental disconnect or fault condition.
  • Power-Pack Charger: The Power-Pack Charger can charge up to three Novacor LVAS power packs at a time, ensuring that recipients always have charged power packs available.

It monitors pump performance and system function, alarming for out-of-limit operation or fault conditions.
  • Personal Monitor: The Personal Monitor, designed for at-home use, supplies power to the Novacor LVAS when the recipient is sleeping. The Personal Monitor also monitors device function, providing a loud alarm and instructions in case of a detected fault. A Standby Power Source supplies power to the Personal Monitor in case of an AC power outage.
