The Pevco Link system features a touch control and barcode reader at the station, as well as a transaction database and real-time web application.
Pevco Link tracks the exact item delivered – from origin to destination. It not only reduces lost materials, but improves turnaround times and allows clinical staff to stay focused on patient care.
With Pevco Link™, every carrier, along with its contents and even the sender and recipient, can be documented and tracked – giving users the peace of mind that items will arrive when and where they are needed.
Pevco Link Web AppTM
Pevco TEC – 6’s ergonomic design incorporates well-placed, comfortable handholds and contoured ends so healthcare staff can hold and load carriers more efficiently. Red/green latch status indicators help guarantee that carriers are closed properly.
Pevco TEC-6™ also includes integrated barcodes to enable real-time tracking of every delivery. When combined with Pevco Link™, transaction data and arrival confirmation for any carrier — and its contents— is stored in a database and available at stations.
With long-wearing nylon glide bands, tough hardened steel hinges and Pevco’s patented leak-resistant seal, the TEC-6 is built to stand up to the most demanding 24/7 hospital environment.
Pevco Smart PathTM
With Smart Path, any one blower can handle any transaction from anywhere in the Smart Path system. This eliminates the dependence on a single blower for an individual zone and effectively eliminates downtime for blower preventive maintenance. And with Smart Path, most transactions are completed in just two moves – vacuum and pressure.
Smart Path can be added to an existing Pevco system, added to another manufacturer’s system, or installed during the construction of a new hospital.
By using one blower for a transaction from start to finish, instead of powering up a new blower for each new zone a carrier enters, transactions take less time and use less energy.
Pevco Smart Path eliminates dependency on any one blower per zone. If a blower is off-line because of mechanical failure, electric outage or maintenance, any other blower within the Smart Path can accomplish the delivery ensuring that stations remain in-service and patient needs are met.
Pevco Delivery Stations
Pevco stations are engineered to send and receive carriers quickly and safely so staff can focus on patient care. Station padding, designed to absorb noise, lines the floors and walls for quiet carrier arrival. Carriers are easy to retrieve since they land at an ergonomic height and in an organized fashion. Sloped station bins position carriers in the order they arrive. Our stations, equipped with Pevco LinkTM user controls and an optional barcode reader, have powerful tracking capabilities that help reduce error.
Standard and Compact Stations mount flush with a wall, saving valuable floor space. Versatile Compact Stations have additional installation options, including counter mount. Pevco Delivery Stations position arriving carriers in the order they are received.
Pevco Diverters & Blowers
Our diverters and blowers are built to reduce downtime and make maintenance trouble-free.
Running on the familiar Microsoft Windows platform, Pevco Smart System™ manages delivery routing, ensuring each carrier travels the shortest possible distance. Deliveries are monitored in real-time so any trouble, such as a full bin at a destination, is flagged instantly. From the Smart System control interface, hospital facility staff can adjust station settings, shutdown equipment for maintenance and review historical transaction data. With a full feature set and years of proven performance, Pevco Smart System™ is designed for hospital engineering professionals.
Notification of system-generated advisories and alarms allows staff to respond quickly.
When a station is out of service because of a full carrier bin, maintenance staff is instantly alerted.
Facility engineers are notified when carriers fail to liftoff or reach their destinations.
Sentry can be customized to communicate with all levels of pneumatic tube system engineers and managers. By filtering emails to each addressee by station and type of event, communication is streamlined. System engineers receive only the critical information they need to keep the system—and their facility—running smoothly.
Pevco pneumatic tube stations integrated with a nurse call system improve patient care by:
Pevco Security Door
With a Pevco security door in place, hospital staff must enter an authorization code to release the durable electromagnetic lock to access the station’s contents. Once unlocked, the door stays open, leaving hands free to remove the carrier that has arrived. If the door is not manually closed within 60 seconds, a programmable alarm rings as a reminder to close the door.
The automatic lift-off feature makes Pevco’s Point-to-Point™ simple and fast to operate.
Pevco’s Point-to-Point™ efficient pressure/vacuum operation requires few moving parts, simplifying maintenance.
Requiring only 2” of wall clearance and with a base footprint of just 20” square, Pevco’s Point-to-Point™ fits in the smallest of spaces. The blower can be housed within the unit or can be placed remotely to reduce noise.
All Pevco pneumatic tube delivery systems are UL Listed. System in-use indicators and electronic door locks keep employee hands out of the way of arriving carriers.
Pevco’s Point-to-Point™ pneumatic tube delivery systems are available in 4”, 6” and 8” tube size and accommodate both standard and leak-resistant carriers.
Pevco Atlas’ map frame shows a live image of the entire system with the ability to zoom in on zones or individual devices to access additional information and functionality.
Pevco Atlas’ transaction frame displays the details of each delivery in list form, enabling a facility technician to easily monitor and control every stage of a delivery.
See inbound deliveries before they arrive. Flags can be set to highlight deliveries from key departments like the ED and OR.
Deliver blood products quickly and safely with an end-to-end chain of custody that documents who sent and received which item, along with location and time-stamp information.
Free staff to focus on patient turnaround times with a wall mounted monitor that displays inbound and outbound deliveries of pharmaceuticals, specimens and blood products.
Know what’s arriving and if a specimen has reached the lab by viewing a monitor in the OR. Set flags to monitor deliveries involving key departments like blood bank and lab.
See when a specific pharmaceutical left the pharmacy, when and where it arrived and even who received it. If the item becomes misplaced, locate it quickly.
Eliminate the need for nurses to call the pharmacy or lab to check on a delivery with a dashboard viewable with a PC web browser and a large wall mounted monitor.
Pevco Passport offers seamless credential verification to identify who sends and receives pneumatic tube deliveries.
With Passport, a clinician scans their ID badge*, linking themselves to a delivery. When the delivery arrives at its destination, the clinician who accepts it can scan their ID badge creating a complete audit trail. The identities of the sender and receiver are stored in the tube system database and available in real time through Pevco’s clinician dashboard, making it easy to know the who, what and where of important deliveries. Passport integrates with directory services and employee access systems such as Microsoft’s Active Directory, Tyco’s C-Cure and United Technologies’ Lenel – providing real-time credential verification that is always up to date.
Passport works with RFID proximity, magnetic swipe, and barcode badges. Web service compatibility ensures seamless integration with IT resources.
