65W Power Supplies for Next-Generation Medical Devices

SL Power Electronics, a division of SL Industries today introduced the latest addition to its advanced medical-grade power supply family, the MB65S. This 65-W single-output convection-cooled family of ac-dc power supplies is designed to meet the new safety standards of IEC 60601-1-2 fourth edition EMC requirements. The new models are specifically designed for next-generation medical equipment including patient monitoring, surgical, imaging, home healthcare devices and laboratory equipment that demand a higher level of EMC, EMI, and ac input performance.

Medical device designers will especially appreciate the new model's small form factor of only 2" x 3.5" x 1.3" which is suited for portable applications. The new models are approved to AAMI ES/CSA C22.2/EN/IEC60601-1, third edition with 2x Means of Patient Protection (MOPP) and appropriate for type BF isolation applications. The new models feature a universal ac input of 85- to 264-Vac and dc output range from 12V to 48V. The family is available in Class I or Class II input configurations. Moreover, input/output and temperature monitoring/alarms are standard features of the MB65S family.

"At SL Power, we lead the market with medical power solutions providing the highest performance and satisfying strict medical device requirements," said Cochise Mapa, Director of Product Management.

The MB65S power supply operates from -20 to 70 degrees C and starts up at -40 degrees C. With less than 0.5W of no-load power consumption, the power supply is environmentally friendly and will not drain the host system batteries when in idle or quiescent mode. In addition, the models are fully self-protected against short circuit, overload, and over-temperature conditions.

The MB65S Medical Series offers eight standard models and features a three-year warranty. The RoHS compliant power supplies meet stringent EMC requirements for applications requiring Class B conducted and Class B radiated EMI performance. In addition, the models are rated at 560,000 hours of calculated Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF). Models are fully approved by International Safety Agencies to the IEC60601-2, 3rd edition safety standard and carry cUL, CAN/CSA, and DEMKO approval markings. Available now through SL Power's extensive distribution sales channels, OEM pricing starts at $35.00 each for 500 piece orders.
