Our healthcare power supply range

Given that designing modern high-efficiency AC-DC power supplies is a craft in itself, and that bio life science equipment has to undergo strict compliance testing, most designers nowadays elect to use standard commercially available medical power supplies, or seek the help of a specialist power supply company to create a customized unit. Using power supplies that are already pre-approved to the EN60601-1 safety standard helps bio life science equipment manufacturers speed compliance testing of their own products, and minimizes the risk of them encountering unexpected development problems outside their own area of expertise, which might negatively impact launch targets.
