Reliable power supplies when failure isn't an option
XP Power understands the challenges faced by medical device manufacturers due to legislation and market demands. Our products are designed to meet these challenges and provide cost-effective solutions for use in both the hospital and non-hospital environments. Understanding the requirements of our target customers has led to product features that are incorporated for a reason, such as class II approvals for home-care devices, highly efficient convection-cooled designs for low noise patient area devices and defibrillator-proof DC-DC converters for applied part applications.Download brochure
Medical Industry Understanding
Our products undergo EMC testing to help us provide as much information as possible during design-in to ensure compliance with IEC60601-1-2. To aid compliance, EMC testing facilities within Europe and North America are available free of charge to customers.
Laboratory Environment Compliance
For equipment used within laboratory environments, compliance with IEC60950 is normally sufficient, involving less stringent isolation and leakage current requirements.
The diagram below illustrates isolation for a typical medical device with an applied part. Two isolation barriers are required to ensure that the applied part is isolated from the ground and meets the patient leakage current limits during normal and single fault conditions. The primary isolation barrier for this type of equipment can be provided by an XP Power supply, while the secondary isolation barrier is provided by another system component or XP solution.
