Health structures are very heavily dependent on having a secure power supply
Electrical continuity is a key factor in hospital settings
A failure in electrical safety in a hospital setting could be fatal. This security is of vital importance, in particular in the operating suite. There are so many random, external or internal factors to take into account for even the most reliable electricity supply. These factors may create incidents which health structures must avoid at all costs because they put people’s lives in danger on a daily basis. With increasingly strict regulations, electrical continuity is absolutely vital in order to protect patients, staff and equipment, and guarantee zero risk. The main regulation which sets out the guidelines for improving security in health structures is defined by the standard NFC 15-211 dated August 2006 “Low voltage electrical installations – electrical installations in medically used rooms“. The proper application of the texts falls under the responsibility of the heads of the healthcare structures.
SLAT has developed specific ranges for medical and emergency systems
With the aim of meeting the needs of markets for the protection of people, SLAT offers health structures specially adapted UPS (uninterruptible power supplies) as a back-up for level 1 critical activities (activity for which no power outages can be tolerated), for example in the operating suite. These UPS notably provide continuity of service until the generator is started up. The SCIA range is compliant with standard NFC 15-211 and the SANTE range provide back up for nurse call systems (as well as other systems).
