Meeting the evolving demands of the global healthcare market
The healthcare market continues to evolve rapidly and applicable standards such as IEC 60601 are becoming increasingly stringent. The vital responsibility for ensuring compliance – and the ultimate safety of both patients and operators using their products – places significant demands on medical device manufacturers facing stiff commercial realities. Florian Haas, Traco Power, explains.
POL switching regulators in efficient open frame design
The TSR 1.5E is a 1.5 Ampere step-down switching regulator series and a drop-in replacement for inefficient LM78xx linear regulators. This series comes in a compact SIP-3 open frame package and complements TRACOPOWER’s existing POL portfolio with a series focusing strongly on a cost efficient design while maintaining our quality standards.
Power safety solutions in medical devices
One of the key safety concerns with respect to medical devices is, that the patient is often electrically connected to the medical device. Since a medical device must be absolutely safe for both, the patient and the operator, all electronics including components must meet strict requirements according to IEC/EN 60601-1.
