Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has extended its line of UL 1363A-compliant medical-grade power strips approved for use in patient-care vicinities. The new PS615HG20AOEM medical-grade power strip is approved for use in operating rooms, patient-care areas, therapy rooms, imaging environments and administrative areas. This medical-grade power strip has six 20-amp outlets and mounts to IV poles, crash carts and other mobile equipment for use inside and outside the patient-care vicinity.
Among the PS615HG20AOEM power strip’s advanced features is a 15-foot power cord that allows medical personnel to move connected equipment close to patients. Two industrial-grade 20-amp circuit breakers protect medical equipment from overloads and short circuits.
Tripp Lite’s new PS615HG20AOEM medical-grade power strip also meets the requirements outlined in the CMS categorical waiver, which allows the power strip to be used in healthcare facility patient-care vicinities if the provider/supplier meets all of the listed requirements.
• Long 15-foot, 12-gauge power cord allows connected equipment to be moved where needed;
• Dual resettable 20A circuit breakers are built in to protect against dangerous overloads;
• NEMA 5-20P-HG hospital-grade plug and NEMA 5-20R-HG hospital-grade outlets comply with UL 1363A specifications;
• Integrated locking safety covers guard against access to unused outlets and require a tool to be removed;
• Meets requirements outlined in the CMS categorical waiver.
“We’re pleased to offer another medical-grade power strip solution for use in patient-care vicinities that meets the latest CMS requirements,” said Jim Folk, Tripp Lite’s Director of Healthcare Solutions. “The 15-ft. cord gives medical professionals flexibility to move connected equipment close to the patient, so they can focus on patient treatment, not equipment management.”
