Standex Toroidal Power Transformers for Medical Applications
New toroidal power transformers from Standex Electronics protect sensitive medical devices including those used in patient care environments. Available as bare toroids which can be integrated into the devices themselves or as toroids housed in enclosures with circuit breakers, fused input, plug-ins and other user-friendly options. Compliant with UL/IEC 60601 specifications, these transformers feature extremely low leakage current between primary and secondary windings.
These unique designs are a direct result of our "global footprint." Designed by engineers with medical expertise, then manufactured in ISO facilities in lower-cost regions, Standex toroidal power transformers for medical applications provide affordable protection. Toroidal power transformers can be customized to suit particular requirements.
Options available include:
- Connector harnesses
- Circuit breakers, fused input
- Mounting options
- Temperature & over-current protection
- Dual inputs (120/240V)
- Protective earth shielding
- Ultra low μA leakage current between primary and secondary windings
A Major MRI Manufacturer has Clear Reasons to Choose Standex
When a major manufacturer of medical equipment was looking for a better way to power their MRI's and scanning rooms, they contacted Standex. We designed custom transformers from the ground up. And the results are crystal clear.
Let's face it — having an MRI can be a stressful event for a patient. Having to repeat the process because of electrical interference or "noise" is unacceptable. So Standex engineers designed special wiring to greatly reduce energy transfer from one winding to another. Then we developed a proprietary winding process which further reduces the leakage inductance. The result is higher quality scans — and more satisfied patients. Not to mention the OEM.
Our unique "global footprint" allows Standex to manufacture parts in plants throughout the world, depending upon expertise, logistics and costs involved.
We know that "one size fits all" does not cut it in the medical equipment world. So we look at every component to see whether custom designed solutions will better address the particular need. This approach has earned us "strategic supplier" status from numerous medical customers. Can your medical devices benefit from top notch engineering expertise and manufacturing facilities designed for custom work? If so, call us!
OEMs Rest Easy Knowing that Standex Powers their Hospital Beds
Manufacturers of hospital beds, maternity beds, surgical tables and other patient-transport devices trust Standex for power supplies. From basic transformer coils to value added assemblies, these manufacturers know that Standex will engineer a custom solution that is on target and on budget. One manufacturer was purchasing basic transformer coils from us — until we proved that we could package these with other components which they were purchasing from other vendors.
Now we provide value added assemblies that are accepted directly into their spare parts system — ready for shipment to customers. Partnering with Standex provides this medical OEM with "plug and play" convenience without having to manage multiple supply chain vendors. That means no more in-house assembly, testing and validation procedures. Now they focus their efforts on better serving their customers — and designing the next generation of patient transport devices. This OEM can rest easy knowing that Standex is in their corner.
