Network isolators and galvanic isolation of medical electrical equipment
Isolators for medical applications
Galvanic isolation of medical electrical devices.
Network isolators and isolators for the patient environment are used in the medical field to protect the patient from vagabonding currents, also-called leakage and compensating currents. This currents can occur when an active medical device is connected to a non-medical device such as an office PC or laptop. When healthcare facilities combine medical electrical devices, they have to demonstrably the comply with the legal requirements of Medical Device Directiv.
Our network isolators, USB isolators, RS232 isolators or video isolators, they solve a problem that occurs in almost all medical facilities, hospitals and clinics: high leakage currents over the (data) line and possibly also over the patient. This is a growing risk factor, especially in connection with the increasing digitalization of healthcare. As soon as an electrical device within the patient environment is connected to the server via an electrical (data) line, the standards for electrical safety in medical technology, IEC 60601-1, require the electrical isolation of the signal line. Baaske Medical's isolators solve this problem by isolating currents and voltages on the (data). Due to the fact they cannot reach the patient. Even if the data processing device is located outside the patient environment.
For the isolation of medical electrical devices, Baaske Medical offers a comprehensive product portfolio for network isolators, RS232 isolators, USB isolators and video isolators.
