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
