Do not compromise when it comes to supporting live-saving equipment.
Patient care is your number one priority. That makes protecting patient care technology number two.
An uninterrupted power supply is essential to the performance of medical equipment. A UPS power conditioner helps smooth out potentially damaging surges and sags and covers any power gaps in the event of an outage.
For vital sign monitors, CT scanners and MRI machinery, the power supply needs to be constant, non-fluctuating and reliable to prevent damage to the equipment and ensure accurate readings and test results.
Doctors, nurses and patients rely on the critical information these sensitive machines provide and often cannot wait for them to bounce back after a power surge or outage. Uninterruptible power supplies keep a steady current flowing to maintain performance over time.
In addition to diagnostic equipment, UPS systems provide battery backup for life-sustaining medical equipment in the event of an emergency. Patients relying on ventilators, dialysis, respirators, anesthesia machines and more need a continuous power supply to provide care and support as they recover.
In the event of a black- or brownout, a Mitsubishi Electric UPS can provide backup power to critical equipment until generators are available.
Schedule an in-person or virtual factory demonstration test to witness our medical-grade UPS, the 9900AEGIS, under various load conditions. Once you purchase your Mitsubishi Electric UPS, you can witness how your system responds to adverse scenarios during a factory witness test, which allows for last minute tweaks and verification of correct integration between equipment.
Flywheel-powered UPS systems are low maintenance, have a longer life cycle than traditional batteries, and can work in any environment. Compared to lead acid batteries, flywheels present an eco-friendly alternative and are ideal in a hospital or healthcare facility where storage and disposal of hazardous batteries is problematic. With a flywheel, the rotational energy of the wheel is leveraged to create and store more power, while naturally smoothing out surges or sags as needed.
While they provide a shorter period of backup power (30-40 seconds), flywheels can be an ideal solution in situations where the UPS is only needed to cover fluctuations or gaps between power outages and generator power kicking in. A medical-grade flywheel UPS provides a high-power, small footprint solution that doesn’t need to be replaced over time and doesn't have the same cooling requirements as traditional batteries.
Incorporating lithium ion batteries into your battery backup system for supporting hospital equipment is another avenue to explore, as it delivers longer runtime and requires less maintenance.
Due to the absence of toxic lead, lithium ion may serve as an attractive alternative to the environmentally- and safety-minded leadership at hospitals.
Different lithium ion chemistries possess distinct characteristics. Certain chemistries are optimized for certain runtimes and/or present different levels of safety. As a result, various chemistries are available to create a tailored solution to best suit your needs.
In medical applications, the recommended Mitsubishi Electric UPS is the 9900AEGIS, a three-phase, 80-225 kVA UPS that is lightweight and possesses a small footprint.
