SCHURTER starts with safety with Medical equipment

SCHURTER Ltd News and PR from SCHURTER Ltd - Published 05 February 2019 Electrical equipment used in medical technology must not place patients or medical staff in danger.
Medical technology uses a wide range of
electrical equipment. During normal operation
and in the event of a malfunction, it is imperative that the equipment does not pose any danger to patients or medical staff. A piece of equipment that causes a short circuit or residual current can trigger a protective system upstream and in doing so shut down other, possibly life sustaining, equipment.

Thus, it is necessary to pay special attention to how each unit is supplied with power. Connectors and power entry modules used in the equipment are tested to component standards and if in compliance with these standards can generally be used in most equipment without additional testing.
