Few industries make the reliability and maintenance-free capabilities of equipment power systems as design-critical as the medical industry. Medical electronics are often considered the most safety and reliability-focused electronics, driven by global high-end design and production standards.
RECOM’s RACM1200-V power supply is designed to meet the medical specific safety standard 2 x MOPP (Measures of Patient Protection). Recognized by standards organizations such as the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the European Commission IEC60601-1, the standard requires the RACM1200-V to provide 3000Vac of Operator Protective Measures (MOOP) isolation Voltage, maintain 5mm of creepage and 4mm of electrical clearance and provide double insulation between the primary and secondary sides of the power supply.
In addition, the RACM1200-V meets the low leakage current limits specified by IEC 60601-1 for Type BF (Body Insulation) applications, which are generally conductive and have direct contact with the patient’s body for extended periods of time. These applications include, but are not limited to, blood pressure monitors, incubators, ultrasound equipment, heart rate monitors, and more. The table below shows the isolation specifications for Type BF equipment, and the RACM1200-V not only meets or exceeds these standards.
The isolation voltage to ground of RACM1200-V is 2000VAC and meets POE requirements. Finally, the power supply is safety certified according to IEC/EN 62368, UL/IEC/EN 60601 and IEC/EN 61558-2-16.
The RACM1200-V features high performance power output while maintaining extremely low standby power, making it ideal for applications that require long-term reliability and sustainability. The power supply has a universal AC input range of 85-264VAC and can deliver 1000W without active cooling such as a fan, or up to 1200W continuous with active cooling. The RACM1200-V is factory settable for 24VDC or 48VDC output voltage, with 50A and 25A output current limits, respectively. The RACM1200-V series can include fail-safe settings upon request, using intelligent, controlled fault limiting to ensure the power supply is always at a safe operating level. Additionally, the RACM1200-V is so efficient that it is even certified 80 PLUS Platinum, meaning it achieves the following ratios of output to input power (taken from Clearresult.com).
The RACM1200-V’s compact size of only 3.8 in x 9 in x 1.5 in (97 mm x 229 mm x 38 mm) minimizes size for a variety of applications.
If your application requires up to 1200W of continuous power, the RACM1200-V provides a 12V smart output controller that utilizes PWM or voltage signals to ensure proper control of external cooling fans.
The most impressive feature of this high power density power supply is the passive cooling system design for quietness and efficiency in most applications. The RACM1200-V’s baseboard can handle all thermal management loads, keeping the device below 80°C either continuously outputting less than 1000W or boosting to 1200W for no more than 10 seconds, which is well below the power requirements of many applications. For applications requiring more than 1000W, the RACM1200-V can provide up to 1200W of constant output power with 2.5m/s forced cooling. The RACM1200-V features an integrated 12V fan controller, ensuring that the fans are only activated when needed to maintain high efficiency. For patient comfort, the equipment in the ward should limit audible noise, making the RACM1200-V an ideal choice with its excellent fanless power output capability.
The RACM1200-V is an ideal power supply for medical monitoring and automated measurement applications. Because this modular power solution complies with various global medical safety standards, it is ideal to be part of your next medical monitoring device.
