Tripp Lite has released a new medical-grade power strip, expanding its line of UL 60601-1-compliant medical-grade power strips. The PS-406-HGULTRA features a patented protection circuit to guard patients and staff against shock hazards, while providing four hospital-grade outlets for connecting equipment.
The PS-406-HGULTRA medical-grade power strip is designed for use in areas both inside and outside patient-care vicinities, including therapy rooms, imaging environments, patient rooms, and administrative areas. A switchless design prevents accidental shutoff, and integrated, locking safety covers limit access to unused outlets.
The strip includes a NEMA 5-15P-HG hospital-grade plug and four NEMA 5-15R-HG hospital-grade outlets, while a resettable 15A circuit breaker protects against dangerous overloads. A 6-foot power cord allows connected equipment to be moved where needed. The integrated locking safety covers require a tool for removal to better protect against unauthorized access.
“For the healthcare professional, patient safety is a top concern,” said Jim Folk, Tripp Lite’s director of healthcare solutions. “Our new medical-grade power strip gives healthcare facility administrators the protection they need to keep patients, as well as staff, safe from electrical shocks. And this strip’s 6-foot cord adds flexibility of equipment placement so medical technicians can focus on treatment and procedures.”
