Critical applications require a high quality and reliable power supply to function correctly. In many cases, a medical grade power supply is necessary to ensure the safety of patients and staff.
The mechanical aspect of a medical approved power supply works by providing a tight and secure fit with the medical equipment. The materials used in the construction of these power supplies are also important as they must meet certain standards for cleanliness and durability.
EMC levels for the medical power supply units are also stringently tested and controlled as these devices can often be found near sensitive equipment. The power output must be stable and free of any spikes or surges that could potentially damage delicate electronic components.
Safety approvals must adhere to IEC/EN/UL 60601-x standards in order to be used in a medical setting. These devices are also required to have a higher level of insulation than standard power supplies.
A mopp (means of patient protection) level of at least moop (means of operator protection) II is necessary for many critical applications.
Environment the equipment works in is also an important consideration. Often medical devices are required to function in wet or dusty areas.
IP 67 and NEMA 12 ratings are typically necessary for these types of applications.
