A ‘medical-grade UPS’ line has been launched by CyberPower Systems (USA).
The new product is power protection tested for use as medical electrical equipment and designed “to provide clean and consistent power for electronic medical diagnostic, treatment and monitoring equipment, as well as healthcare computer and IT systems”, CyberPower said.
CyberPower product management director Tim Derochie said: “Beyond technical requirements, we looked into how people in a healthcare facility might interact with these products. That led to an LCD panel that’s sealed to resist harm from cleaning sprays, a one-button operation to mute alarms and a mini-tower form factor that can resist tipping if accidentally bumped.”
The line is designed for use in a range of medical settings including hospitals and laboratories and the product has been tested for use within six feet of a patient, “excepting those on life support or in critical care”.
“M750L and M1100XL models include a SNMP slot for optional remote management cards, which allows for remote monitoring and control of the unit,” CyberPower said. The M1100XL has the option to add up to two extended battery modules for increased run-times.”
