Emergency Response | Ambulance


In any emergency, paramedics and EMTs rely on their expertise and medical equipment to ensure that patients have the best chance for survival.

Ambulances today sustain large electrical loads from computers, defibrillators, blood warmers, refrigeration, brake retarders, and monitors, along with standard equipment that includes sirens, flashers, radio, and battery-operated gurneys. In the “golden hour” to save a patient’s life, there is no time for batteries to fail or recharge at the station.


Merlin’s solutions ensure EMS vehicle power no matter how hectic, far away, or how long the emergency call.

AMERICAN IDLE: Comply with strict US anti-idling laws. For less than the cost of a battery, Merlin’s battery monitoring provides always-accurate State of Charge. Know when you can operate on battery power and when you need to start the engine.

LEAD THE CHARGE: Merlin’s battery monitoring can trigger audio or visual alarms to know when in-station battery chargers should initiate or terminate; or integrate with auto-eject plugs to automate the process. Overcharging at the station decreases battery life and degrades performance.

DEPENDABILITY: Properly charging batteries keeps them healthier longer. Merlin’s intelligent Split Charging optimizes the power balance across vehicle electrical systems. Power is directed where it is needed most, avoiding damaging overcharging and excessive discharging.
