ISOLATING TRANSFORMERS FOR THE MEDICAL SECTOR
In the medical sector, the safety and reliability of electrical installations are of crucial importance. In this context, medical isolation transformers stand out as true allies, guaranteeing the safe and uninterrupted operation of electrical systems used in healthcare environments. In this article, we will explore in detail the importance of these devices, focusing on their benefits and the protective function they bring to a wide range of medical equipment.
WHAT MEDICAL TRANSFORMERS DO
Medical isolation transformers are a key element in grounded electrical systems used in the medical sector. They are designed to provide electrical isolation, minimising the risk of failure, and ensuring continuity of power supply. These devices comply with IEC 61558-2-15 standard, which underlines the importance of their reliability in the medical sector.
The medical isolation transformer is an isolated power supply used in medical electrical IT systems (isolated from ground), which allows the isolation to be monitored and minimises the risk of failure while maintaining operational continuity of the power supply.
The transformer is used in connection with supervisor monitor for a continuous control of insulation to ground.
THE KEY BENEFITS
The use of isolation transformers in medical environments offers several key benefits:
- Short-circuit prevention: isolation transformers protect against short circuits, drastically reducing the risk of power supply interruptions.
- Protection from electrical discharges: thanks to galvanic isolation, equipment is protected against electrical discharges, helping to maintain the safety of patients and medical staff.
- Interference reduction: isolation transformers help mitigate interference and electromagnetic disturbances that could adversely affect the operation of sensitive medical equipment.
WHICH EQUIPMENT IT PROTECTS
The single-phase medical isolation transformer is suitable for protecting a variety of medical equipment, including:
- Imaging equipment: in diagnostic imaging, such as CT scanners, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound equipment.
- Surgical equipment: instruments and devices used in operating rooms, such as electric scalpels and coagulation instruments.
- Monitoring equipment: cardiac monitors, blood pressure monitors and vital sign monitoring devices.
- Therapy equipment: equipment used for medical therapies such as radiotherapy or dialysis.
- Diagnostic equipment: diagnostic instruments, such as laboratory equipment and blood testing machines.
