When it comes to medical equipment, even the smallest fluctuations in the power supply are not acceptable as they could be a threat to human life. Medical premises have consequently stringent requirements to guarantee the absolute continuity of their operations.
Specific features on the Protect 8 series from AEG Power Solutions allow the system to meet the standards for power supplies in the healthcare environment, which are among the most demanding worldwide. The Protect 8 series are online systems, guaranteeing a constant double conversion operation, which is necessary to have the highest level of reliability, as online topology filters out all faults from the public grid before it is supplied to the loads.
The Protect 8 range offers high performance in compact dimensions which can be of important in medical facilities where space is sometimes limited. Protect 8 UPS systems are internally redundant and, to enhance safety, have separate processors and power packs for controlling rectifiers, inverters and electronic switching devices (SBS). The Flexible Multi-Master Technology has been developed by AEG PS to use n + 1 UPS devices in redundant parallel operation and guarantee that the master functions of the power supply system are always available.
Maintaining the battery capacity at a sufficient level is also critical.
The Protect 8 UPS system offers a specific option to match this requirement. The system can manage battery capacity using a regenerative power supply, so that the stored energy is not wasted.
AEG PS has had many years of experience in the design, implementation and service of power supply systems in hospitals.
