The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, is a medical institution dedicated to patient care, healthcare research, and medical education initiatives. The facility specializes in advanced medical provision with a commitment to patient-centered healthcare and the latest digital medical infrastructure. The Jacksonville campus houses imaging centers offering an extensive array of diagnostic services which are crucial to provide superior healthcare.

Mayo Clinic patients benefit from MRI, CT scans, ultrasound, X-rays, and other imaging modalities, all supported by experienced radiologists and technologists who collaborate with Mayo Clinic’s medical teams to ensure top-quality imaging services.

The facility required a reliable power protection solution for its Photon-Counting CT Scanner. This advanced medical imaging technology is designed to enhance image quality and reduce radiation exposure.

This sensitive, energy intensive equipment required a high level of responsive power protection. Should a malfunction or power interference occur the result could be an incomplete diagnosis resulting in the need to rescan and leading to patient discontent and wasted time.

To ensure uninterrupted operations, Active Power supplied Mayo Clinic with its CLEANSOURCE® HD 675kW UPS, renowned for its high efficiency, power density, and sustainable battery-free design. This UPS not only facilitates the seamless operation of one CT scanner initially but also offers the scalability to accommodate an additional scanner in the future.

Transitioning to flywheel technology eliminates the necessity for temperature-controlled battery rooms and the frequent battery replacements typical of traditional UPS systems. This solution guarantees uninterrupted, cost-effective, and safe CT scanning processes.
