One of the fundamental safety concerns concerning medical devices is that a patient is often electrically connected to a medical device. As a medical device must be completely safe for the patient and the operator, all electronics, including components, must satisfy strict demands according to IEC/EN 60601-1.


For example, AC/DC power supplies and DC-DC converters for medical and healthcare applications need to fulfil much stricter requirements than power supplies for the industrial market. The main technical differences are extra requirements on the isolation system (2xMOPP), the leakage current, the isolation capacitance and EMC limits.


The company provides both AC/DC and DC-DC solutions for medical applications, all of which meet the 2xMOPP requirement. Compliant with the EMC requirements of the 4th edition of IEC/EN 60601-1, they are ideal for all patient connected, body floating rated applied parts medical devices.






The AC/DC products range from small 5W PCB-mounting modules, a variety of mid-power open frame designs, and enclosed power supplies providing power levels of up to 850W.


Its DC-DC converter range comprises PCB-mounting modules with power levels from 1W to 60W.
