Flywheels Back Medical and Broadcasting Equipment

Pentadyne has entered into a memorandum of understanding agreement for Toshiba to sell Pentadyne's flywheel in medical and broadcasting uninterruptible power supply (UPS) applications. The UPS system division of Toshiba offers the Pentadyne VSS+DC energy storage system with Toshiba's G8000 series of UPSs for in-patient treatment/diagnostic equipment and for television broadcast facilities.

Pentadyne's flywheel energy storage system can be used as a supplement to increase the reliability of conventional UPS lead-acid battery arrays, or can be used to eliminate the cost, maintenance and less predictable reliability burdens common to lead-acid batteries.
