Our medical power supplies are rated from 3000 to 5000 VAC and include reinforced insulation and a low leakage current for operator protection (2xMOOP) and patient protection (2xMOPP). Our vast range of medical power supplies are approved to the latest safety standards ANSI/AAMI ES 60601-1, IEC/EN 60601-3rd edition with 2xMOPP/2MOOP.
Choosing the right power supply for any rail application is vital to the output performance. There are several factors that need to be taken into consideration when selecting the right power supply, the EN 50155 safety standard ensures these factors are addressed; high temperature, high vibration environment and challenges of power distribution.
Company – Manufacturer of Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM)
Requirement – looking to improve power efficiency and come up with a different options to their current 540W toroidal transformer, with the associated size and significant weight of such a product. As efficiency regulations become ever more stringent, all manufacturers of ‘robust’ industrial equipment will begin to face this challenge.
Manufacturer of Home Medical Equipment for Assisted Living
Requirement – Upgrading of their product range requiring a new internal power supply to cope with the increased current demands vs the previously two external products used, while still maintaining all safety approvals and the option to charge a battery back up system from the same unit.
The main difference between a switch mode power supply and a linear power supply is that the former uses switches to control the flow of energy, while the latter uses resistors to control the voltage output. This means that switch mode power supplies are more efficient than regulated power supplies, as the resistors in the linear regulator dissipate the extra energy in the form of heat. However, switched mode power supplies generate noise due to the high-speed switching process, so it's important to choose the right type of power supply for your application.
