Medipower™ Equipotential Bonding Busbar

Earth Reference Bars for all Group 1 and Group 2 medical locations

Medipower™ Equipotential Bonding Busbar

Brandon Medical has launched a new range of Medipower Earth Reference Bars (ERB) to supply all Group 1 and Group 2 medical locations. Brandon Medical’s ERBs adhere to the MEIGaN set of regulations protecting both patients and clinicians in healthcare environments.

 

Brandon Medical EBB ERB

The Medipower Earth Reference Bars

Designed and manufactured by Brandon Medical, Medipower EBB complement our extensive range of Isolated Power Supply (IPS) and Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) equipment. The ERBs are available in 350 ampere and high capacity 630 ampere current ratings allowing a greater quantity of protective earth conductors to be connected. All of Brandon Medical’s ERBs are fully compliant with MEIGaN requirements.

Brandon’s ERBs are available in flush or surface mounting options. They are simple to install with easily removable links in order to fulfill recognised test procedures. The coloured labeling system allows for ease of identification of all the system earths connected to the ERB.
