Excelsys Xsolo Power Supplies Meet BF ratings for Medical Applications
Excelsys Technologies announced today that its Xsolo power supplies have been designed and tested in accordance with the requirements for both B (body) and BF (body floating) medical product requirements per the IEC 60601 standard. Meeting these stringent standards help medical equipment manufacturers optimize their medical designs to achieve the highest performance and safety levels, enabling first-pass success during agency approvals. B-type applied parts, which are not typically attached to the patient for long periods of time, include, medical lasers, medical imaging (e.g., MRI), hospital beds, phototherapy equipment and LED lighting. Type BF applied parts have conductive long-term contact with a patient. These can include incubators, therapy systems, patient heating and cooling equipment, ultrasound monitoring, cardiac monitoring, as well as long-term diagnostic equipment and blood pressure monitoring.
“Excelsys Technologies developed the XS series of power supplies with medical applications at the forefront,” said Gary Duffy, Excelsys CEO. “By testing our power supplies to the 60601 B and BF specification, we greatly simplify the task of certification for our customers to UL, EN and FDA standards, the end medical device as an applied part for their intended applications with respect to safety and leakage currents.”
Manufacturers often need to incorporate multiple power supplies into a given system and still meet stringent requirements. Excelsys also offers low-leakage power supply versions, which enable the incorporation of multiple power supplies into various medical-type rated systems, depending on the application. As a world-class power supply manufacturer, Excelsys has a global applications team to support and assist customers with their specific system needs.
