¿When monitoring isolated power systems in hospitals, what role do remote indicators play?

By |2023-01-04T21:56:45+00:00January 4th, 2023|Isolated Power Systems|

There are several different types of power failures, the most common of which is an unexpected interruption in a surgical process, the paralysis of a critical area, or the outage of power in general areas. The interruption can last seconds, minutes, or even hours depending on the scope of the damage. This is why the

¿What are the benefits of using UL 1047 certified boards?

By |2023-01-04T21:56:00+00:00January 4th, 2023|Isolated Power Systems|

The UL1047 certification is a fundamental requirement for all sets of equipment that use insulating boards, especially isolated power boards that require high safety standards. The UL1047 certification assures the safety of each member of the establishment, especially those patients who are supported by an electrical panel, through operations requiring isolated power in the health

¿How important is it to check isolated power systems annually?

By |2023-01-04T21:44:14+00:00January 4th, 2023|Isolated Power Systems|

Isolated power systems are an indispensable tool for hospitals, since they are used in operating rooms, intensive care units, cardiac catheterization laboratories, delivery rooms and critical medical areas. Different hospital equipment uses this system for supplying electrical power without physical connection to ground, which reduces the risk of an electric shock and maintains the power

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
