Portable Medical Devices should be designed to use as little energy as possible. There are also situations when such devices will have to operate for many years with one battery. In this case, the ideal solution is Microchip — eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology that provides a very low power consumption in the operating mode and sleep mode, which is a guarantee of long battery life.
Features of Microchip microcontrollers using eXtreme Low Power (XLP):
Modern technologies applied in medical devices require wireless connectivity. Among Microchip products, you can find solutions for communication via USB, Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth®. Energy-efficient Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules provide high-speed data transmission in the devices intended for medical use.
Touch screens are commonly used in medical devices, from medical apparatus’ control panels to access terminals in medical information systems, and patient monitoring systems. Our offer includes resistive screen controllers, capacitive screen controllers and touch sensors, which are plug-and-play solutions for all applications, including medical purposes.
In many medical devices, it is necessary to monitor the patient's temperature. Single-channel digital temperature sensors are a perfect solution for these types of devices. Microchip temperature sensors communicate with popular I2C and SPI serial interfaces, and are equipped with programmable built-in registers in order to enable e.g. setting the temperature range. They are also equipped with an alarm output that is activated in case of exceeding a defined temperature range. Functionalities:
The analogue-digital Microchip converters provide high precision, enabling them to meet the challenges arising in the medical device design process. A wide range of resolutions and sampling rates and a range of functions enable fitting the most demanding applications. ADC converters are ideal for portable and battery-powered devices.
Thanks to their high processing rate and high resolution, Microchip converters work very well in medical applications. A feature of which is their low energy consumption, combined with compact enclosures, facilitating the application of Microchip converters in portable, battery-powered devices.
Common applications are:
SCHURTER products can be used in medical devices. They meet the high standards that are required in medical applications, such as: endurance, efficiency, safety, easy operation and high feature integration.
Rooms that require sterile conditions, such as operating rooms or treatment rooms, must be equipped with devices that withstand frequent disinfection. Therefore, they require components that are resistant to chemical agents and have a high degree of IP protection.
Metal Line switches are backlighted buttons with standard diameters of 19, 22, 30 mm. They are distinguished by high resistance to strokes (IK07) and ingress protection class IP65 and IP67.
MSM is a series of switches that are perfect for applications that require status indications and touch feedback.
Electrical equipment used in medical technology must meet high safety requirements. This protects both the patient and the medical staff. SCHURTER offers a large selection of standard and medical filters for use in a wide range of devices.
Fuseholders offer not only anti-shock protection that prevents direct touching of the voltage-carrying elements, but also a reliable and robust way to attach the fuse in the system. These components ensure a safe and fast replacement of the damaged fuse. SCHURTER FSB1, FSB2 and FEU series fuseholderss are dedicated to high-end medical equipment requiring final certification. They are impact-resistant and provide a high level of anti-shock protection in the PC2 or PC3 class, according to the IEC 60601 norm. The products guarantee absolutely safe solutions, which are applied in diagnostic and therapeutic devices, including medical laboratory equipment, life-supporting and vital-monitoring devices.
It happens that devices for medical applications work without network grounding. In this case, leakage current can be dangerous to the user. Therefore, the leakage current limit has been set, for the safe use of the device. The DD12 series of filters is suitable for use in such conditions. It is a combination of an IEC C14 connector with a 1- or 2-pole switch, a high-quality power line filter and a 1- or 2-pole fuse drawer. Connectors are available in both medical and standard versions, allowing them to be used even in devices that require increased resistance to interference.
Micro Coax series cables are designed for signal transmission. Perfect for applications where the cabling-dedicated space is heavily limited, especially for medical imaging. Micro Coax wires are used in devices such as endoscopes, medical probes or oxymetry systems. High-quality external insulation made of PFA ensures stable operating conditions.
TruStability™ is a series of pressure sensors designed for high-precision measurement applications. Sensors come in differential, absolute or standard measurement versions, as well as in versions with analogue or digital output.
TruStability™ have temperature compensation and an output signal amplifier. The sensors are recommended for devices such as medical ventilators, infusion pumps, oxygen concentrators or breathing apparatus.
Medical Power Adaptor plug-in and desktop power supplies, series GSM and GEM, dedicated to power the medical devices are compliant with patient protection standards (2x MOPP) and meet the latest energy efficiency standards. Plug-in versions are available in the power range from 6W to 36W (also universal models with removable plug), while desktop versions range from 18W to 220W. That covers a wide range of applications, for example: mobile workstations, oral irrigators, portable haemodialysis devices, respiratory apparatus or medical computer monitors.
Compact AC/DC MPM Series on-board power modules are designed for medical applications and meet level 2xMOPP patient protection requirements.
The converters have very low leakage current and class II insulation. They are available in various power and output voltages variants.
MPMs have very low power consumption without load and protection against short circuit, overload, overvoltage and too high temperature.
MPM converters can be applied in portable medical devices, medical monitoring computers, inspection devices.
In the pharmaceutical industry, the quality of the product is extremely important. It must meet the highest requirements and standards. For such difficult and unique products as medicines, cable ties with the addition of metal filings have been developed. Even small fragments of the tie can be captured by the metal detector, thanks to the metal content. Therefore, the risk of contamination is reduced and the production process is safer. Cable ties with metal filings are suitable for fixing cables and electrical wires near the production lines.
Pharmaceuticals production is often associated with difficult conditions — heavy load and high temperature. Especially for harsh conditions, stainless steel and acid-resistant clamp bands have been developed. They are resistant to high temperatures, salt water and acids. Their special lock system prevents unexpected untying and opening, for a safer production process.
