New external power supplies for medical equipment from SL Power

SL Power has announced two new external power supply families to provide medical equipment with the highest level (Level VI) of efficiency and reliability.

The supplies are rated at 150W and 240W respectively. The ME 150 and ME240 families are compact desktop-style units with a range of output voltages and connector options and are suitable for medical monitoring applications such as bedside monitors and oximeters, and home healthcare equipment such as TENs units and infusion pumps.

Both families will meet the 4th edition EMC (60601-1-2) requirements, Class B EMI, and two means of patient protection (2xMOPP) isolation. They make it easier for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to certify their medical devices.

Class II input variants of these families allows operation in applications where there is no earth ground connection, meaning they can be used in a range of applications such as medical, dental or home healthcare, where it is more likely to have user contact.

Long life electrolytic capacitors (e-caps) and a high MTBF underline the reliability of these new power supplies while a 3-year warranty gives customers confidence in their choice of power conversion partner.

SL Power designs its power supplies to help OEMs overcome the toughest power challenges and both families offer protection from overload, overtemperature and overvoltage conditions as well as short circuit protection.
