Expected battery life?

Would anyone have an idea as to how long the batteries should last for this table?

From two years to eight years, yes I've seen a two year old battery have a floot voltage below 10VDC and replaced a set with instal date was around eight years old. There're many variables that can affect the longevity of battery set. IMHO it depends on how often the customer discharges how many partial charge done. How many charge cycles the battery receives, how tight are the battery terminal nuts, are the Power Input Modules male pins showing signs of arcing, is the AC cord set not a OEM 90 degree plug, all these things can affect the life of the batteries.

I’m pretty sure the service manual suggests a 3 yr replacement on those. You can call 800-333-8828 and they will verify.

We replace them every 2 years for good measure.

That time schedule is my minimum.  But you need to check with steris to keep in line with CMS if your facility is heavily watched.
