Benefits

Designed for Nurses

Worry-free usage—on-screen messages guide any recharge needs

On-screen messages show PHD drawers in use (New for Version 7)

Less cart down-time—IT can monitor each cart remotely and diagnose problems without removing the cart from action

Engineered for IT

Custom Views: Eliminate surprises by viewing those carts that meet specific rules and filters, e.g., Carts Unplugged, Carts Not Connected, Carts at 40% Charge, Carts Not Reporting in the Last 7 Days, Carts with Drawer Faults (New for Version 7), etc.

Group View: Organize your carts into groups and subgroups. Set views for specific areas of facilities like “ER Floor 1 Carts”

Remote Enterprise Monitor: Configure and access carts across WAN, LAN, or VPN with real-time information for centralized IT Help Desk Management

Uses standard Microsoft tools: This means qualification work necessary to implement is minimized, and installation is low risk and doesn’t require new training for IT personnel

Install Client StyleLink software on each cart simultaneously from one remote location via network using Microsoft Group Policy Management Console and Active Directory

Remotely configure or change e-mail alerts, names, passwords and communication thresholds on each cart, or a group of carts, using Microsoft Group Policy Management Console and Active Directory

Plan battery replacement based on custom-views or email alerts, rather than being surprised by a (higher cost) replacement situation during caregivers’ active work hours

Thin Client compatible with reduced memory requirements. Requires < 5 MB of RAM (95% reduction from prior versions)

Display hours and minutes remaining and % of charge remaining

Automatically shut down devices prior to damaging a battery, preventing deep discharge and unnecessary replacements

Free downloadable software and upgrades save time and money

Managed for Extended Asset Life Cycle

Optimizes balance between runtime and cycle life

Helps prevent deep discharging, which maximizes battery cycle life and minimizes battery replacement cost

Identifies how carts are being used and charged with the runtime performance graphs, then as needed, load balance or rotate carts for uniform usage, increasing asset management efficiency

Reduce costs for maintenance; eliminate need for expensive onsite technical support by leveraging real-time remote diagnostic capabilities. Or, simply email StyleLink’s history data file to Ergotron Tech Support to help troubleshoot power system performance issues

Using StyleLink software, and showing compliance with exclusions and limitations of battery warranty, extends power system battery warranty to one (1) year

How It Works
The power system on all Ergotron StyleView Carts and SV32 PHD drawers can be connected via a USB cable (supplied) directly to the device (Laptop, PC, Thin Client, Tablet PC). The StyleLink Client Software loaded on the device monitors the power system and drawers, keeping a log for up to 365 days on the use of the cart and the status of the power system and drawers.
If the Enterprise components are installed on a server then real-time and historical cart information can be stored both locally and remotely.
The individual carts, with StyleLink 6 or later, communicate over a network sending data via SNMP to the Ergotron StyleLink collection service. The collection service inserts data into a Microsoft SQL Server. This service will run with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or 2005 Express (free download from MS). The Windows client/server application allows Enterprise users to monitor powered StyleView carts remotely via a central console.
The Enterprise architecture is fully modular. The monitor/console and collection service can be installed on one system or separated onto different systems (multi-node configuration), for further options and details contact us to see the User Manuals.
StyleLink Enterprise Monitor/Console comes with three (3) views: Filtered View: Displays a list of carts that meet filter criteriaGroup View: Displays a list of carts that have been organized into various locations in a hospital facilityGraph View: Displays a detailed graph for a specific cart
