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

Isolate Energy Boards Benefits for Hospitals

By |2021-10-12T01:07:05+00:00March 31st, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

The use of isolated energy boards for hospitals is a mandatory measure stipulated in the RETIE (Technical Regulation for Electrical Installations). This normative consists of using isolated power devices for operating rooms or neonatology; as well as intensive care units, special care units, coronary care units, delivery rooms, cardiac catheterization laboratories, intracardiac procedure rooms, areas

Why do isolated energy panels contribute to the control of the operation of medical equipment?

By |2021-03-31T19:46:34+00:00March 29th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

Insulated power boards are power panels designed to provide power to different equipment without physical grounding. These devices have a wide variety of hospital applications, because they not only ensure the continuous operation of the equipment, but also eliminate the damage that can cause an electric shock to equipment and people. These equipments, contribute to

Importance of the RETIE certification in hospitals

By |2021-03-31T14:18:58+00:00March 28th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

The growth of electrical systems has also resulted in the increase of failures and accidents of electrical origin. This has caused the issue of quality and safety in installations to become a matter of concern for the Government, the Universities and the companies within this sector. That is why technical normative documents have been created

Benefits of conducting maintenance on isolated Power Systems

By |2021-03-31T14:07:26+00:00March 28th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

Isolated Power Systems are fundamental for hospital operations because the functioning and constant surveillance of vital equipment, which are powered by electricity, depend on them. These systems allow the feeding of electric power without a physical grounding which helps to reduce risks in case there is an electric discharge affecting a patient or hospital personnel.

What standards must operating rooms and intensive care units meet to be electrically safe?

By |2021-03-31T15:33:49+00:00March 27th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

Operating rooms and intensive care units are hospital areas of special care, due to the risk that the procedures performed there represent. That is why there are established regulations in the RETIE (Technical Regulations of Electrical Installations), to ensure their proper functioning and guarantee the risk minimization within them. Among these regulations, the RETIE establishes

The Importance of Isolated Power Panels for Laser and X-ray Equipment

By |2021-03-11T14:16:56+00:00March 11th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems|

Technological advances have brought with them a series of medical equipment that have become allies when it comes to diagnosis. Examples of this are laser and X-ray equipment which, since their invention have had an increase in demand, becoming the most used equipment inside the hospital sector. The increased use of this equipment in hospitals

Why is it important to control electrical leakage currents in critical areas of hospitals?

By |2021-02-11T23:36:49+00:00February 11th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

Hospital critical areas depend more and more on the use of electricity, because much of their vital equipment requires it. Controlling any electrical leakage currents associated with the equipment in critical areas of hospitals is crucial, as it involves the safety of patients. Hospital critical areas are perhaps the areas which require the greatest care, as patients
