Powerheart G3 End-Of-Life
Cardiac Science is to no longer sell the Powerheart G3 AED models in Europe. This means that from the close of business on 1st June 2014 in the UK, they will not be able to accept new orders for any model within the G3 range. The decision, which has not been taken lightly, has been influenced by the introduction of the new Powerheart G5 & new EU RoHS directive.
Cardiac Science intends to deliver all outstanding Powerheart G3 AED orders currently being processed by 22nd July 2014.
Cardiac Science will continue to service the G3 devices in the UK and to supply batteries, electrodes and other associated consumables for a period of 7 years (i.e. up to close of business on 21st July 2021).
In response to the decision, Cardiac Science have added the following:
So what are our plans to replace the G3? New products are the lifeblood of any business and ours is no exception. We are delighted to announce that the all-new Powerheart G5 range which builds upon the tried and trusted G3 technologies will be available to fill the gap in our portfolio that today’s announcement creates. Rather than extend the length of this letter in providing you with what is an extensive list of the features and benefits that the Powerheart G5 range will bring to the UK market, I would encourage you to take a look at the short video demonstration that we’ve put together by using the following web-link – http://www.cardiacscience.co.uk/products/powerheart-g5-aed/
If you are a Kays Medical customers and have an existing G3 unit and are not sure how this will affect you please contact our customer service team for clarification.
