What are the limits of leakage currents in hospitals?

By |2021-10-12T02:01:14+00:00July 12th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

Electrical leakage current occurs as a result of current flowing through the protective grounding conductor of an electrical installation. It is common for such currents to occur and must be carefully monitored depending on both the installation's safety and the presence of people in the area where such currents occur.  In hospitals, leakage currents are

What is the best way to identify hospital’s isolated power grid failures?

By |2021-06-10T23:18:14+00:00June 10th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

The isolated power grid is a particular type of power distribution used in critical care areas of hospitals; this kind of grid protects patients and medical staff from the dangers of electric shock as a result of leakage currents (micro shocks) during certain medical procedures. As part of their operation, Isolated energy systems are powered
