Wall-mount AC-DC power supplies with enhanced home healthcare design
Announcing three new series of IP22 rated wall-mount power supplies that deliver significant benefits to the rapidly growing home healthcare market. The devices suit a wide range of cost-sensitive industrial and medical applications while maintaining industry-leading performance.
Increasingly, patient monitoring is being conducted in the home or workplace for convenience or to reduce pressure on hospitals. These new power solutions are specifically designed to operate down to 80VAC to allow for transmission line loss in remote non-hospital locations, whilst maintaining a reliable DC output.
The AMF family of wall plug adaptors offers power levels of 18W (AMF18), 24W (AMF24), and 36W (AMF36) with a single output covering all common voltages between 5.0V and 48.0V, allowing designers to select the ideal device for a wide variety of applications.
All AMF devices are fully approved to a variety of medical, home healthcare, and IT standards, including EN55011, IEC60601, and UL 62368. As the power supply is external, the design of any equipment is dramatically simplified, and the time, cost, and risk associated with gaining approvals are eliminated.
As Class II devices, they can operate safely in environments where the integrity of the safety of earth is not known. The devices are sealed to IP22, allowing the power supply to be cleaned and / or disinfected with reduced risk of electric shock. The AMF power supplies offer 2 x MOPP (Means of Patient Protection), thereby ensuring end-user safety in the unlikely event of a power-related issue. Moreover, leakage current is less than 50A, allowing safe operation in applications where applied parts may be connected to the patient.
All AMF power supplies operate over an extended input voltage range of 80 to 264VAC, allowing worldwide operation with an additional margin for regions where the voltage may fluctuate. A range of interchangeable AC connectors ship with every device, thus allowing the power supply (and any associated medical equipment) to be used globally.
The AMF18, AMF24, and AMF36 series are available from Digi-Key, Distrelec, Farnell, Mouser, RS Components, TME Electronic Components, approved regional distributors, or direct from XP Power and offer a 3-year warranty.
