Seamless power support in the event of mains failure
Uninterruptible Power Supplies Unit
Medipower® UPS for operating theatres, critical care areas and imaging rooms.
Some equipment in the operating theatre can not be allowed to shut down due to even the briefest of power cuts. The addition of a UPS system provides seamless power support in the event of mains failure. Disruption to the electrical supply of critical care medical equipment used in operating theatres and intensive care units can put patients’ lives at risk. By installing a UPS system, the impact of spurious power failures can be minimised.
In accordance with regulations all UPS units provided are double online conversion with an autonomy of 60 minutes. Systems with greater autonomy are available.
The UPS also provides load protection from mains borne spikes, surges and electrical noise. In order to provide maintainability in accordance with CDM guidance, UPS are typically supplied with an external maintenance bypass panel (EMBP). Using energy stored in batteries, a UPS provides instantaneous emergency power to a critical load when the input power source or mains power fails.
A UPS system will continue to supply power in the event of mains failure for a period of typically 15 minutes to 3 hours depending upon the size of the batteries. As the switch over from mains supply to UPS supply is seamless, this make the UPS an ideal back-up system for critical medical equipment.

External Maintenance Bypass Panels – EMBP
These panels provide total isolation for UPS maintenance with no disturbance to the load.
The EMBP allows the UPS to be switched out of service and connects utility supply directly to the load. This enables maintenance of the UPS to take place without interruption of supply.
EMBP are available with multiple configurations to satisfy any UPS design topology.
EMBP Available up to 160KVA
UPS frame sizes larger than 160KVA are typically supplied from separate input/output distribution boards.
Fast Response Negates Safety Key Requirement
EMBP panel allows the static bypass switch to operate within 6 milliseconds ensuring no backfeed to the UPS, thus negating the requirement and cost of Castell interlocking.
Safety Key Interlock Option
Where required by the specification, this option is available upon request.
Delta Zig Zag Transformers
Preferred solution for neutral generation close to UPS, also available upon request.
