Ring and Carnation Designs Power Code Blue and Medics Ambulance

Ring and Carnation Designs joined forces at this year’s CV Show to demonstrate their complete vehicle conversion package. Here’s how our products were used in Medics UK’s vehicle, which was built by Code Blue Specialist Vehicles.

What's on board the vehicle?

 Carnation Designs’ genisys

A complete power management system that gives the control you need for a safe, reliable and manageable mobile work station.​



 ECU

The brain of the genisys system governing communication between all modules. The ECU monitors batteries and digital inputs, and uses software logic to control outputs and intelligently preserve power.

 

Voice Alert

genisys Voice Alert gives clear audible instructions and safety warnings to vehicle operators. Much more helpful than just a buzzer.

 

Keypads

A suite of high quality user interfaces, bespoke configured for every application. 18-way variants feature LCD displays for battery voltages and status information.

 

Output Modules

genisys OPMs offer safe, internally fused, high power delivery. Outputs are controlled by semi-conductor switches rather than mechanical relays providing longer operating life, faster switching and requiring very little drive current.

CANBus Interface

genisys CAN modules provide intelligent base vehicle derived inputs, eradicating the need for multiple hard-wired inputs, increasing system sophistication whilst reducing installation time.

 

Protocol Converter

genisys ‘conduit’ to third party devices, the Protocol Converter module facilitates bidirectional communication with PC-based hardware and relays status information to data logging and telemetry systems.

Ring’s Power, Lighting and Camera Systems

Ring’s products work seamlessly with Carnation’s, ensuring your vehicle operates to maximise your mobile work requirements. We offer tailored solutions in interior and exterior lighting, warning and hazard lighting, mains power, in-vehicle charging and vehicle safety systems.

       
Inverter

The Pure Sine Wave Inverter provides reliable consistent power for vehicles working remotely. The low frequency harmonic distortion of 4-5% is vital for the sensitive electrical equipment, used in ambulances to operate without electronic disturbance.

 

DC-DC

The DC-DC smart charger ensures the ambulance’s auxiliary battery power is maintained. The 12V DC power from the main battery and alternator is converted into a multi-stage charge, optimising the performance of the auxiliary battery. Programmable input voltages provide compatibility with smart alternators.

 

Incident camera

This GPS incident camera adds global position recording, which allows playback on Google maps using the software provided. Other new features include a sharp image six element 140° wide angle lens, built-in microphone, smoother full HD video playback and superior low light recording.

High level brake light camera system

The combined unit is REG10 approved and gives the vehicle operator greater control when reversing, reducing incidents and improving safety around the vehicle. Dual channel functionality allows secondary sided or front cameras to be installed and viewed on a choice of mirror or dashboard style monitors. Installation is simple and the range covers most modern vans.
