Hospital-Grade Surge Suppressors
Tripp Lite, Chicago, introduces two new surge suppressors for use in the health care environment. The SPS606HGRA and SPS610HGRA surge suppressors offer a space-saving, right-angle hospital-grade input plug for placing the units in confined areas, and keyhole mounting tabs and flanges for easy installation. The new design of the SPS606HGRA and SPS610HGRA provides another option for convenient outlets outside the patient care area, including tight spaces. Key benefits include the right-angle hospital-grade input plug with a 6- or 10-foot power cord, depending on the model; six hospital-grade outlets; all-metal housing; and a switch safety cover to prevent accidental shutoff. The two surge protectors also feature a 1,050-joule AC surge-suppression rating; keyhole-mounting tabs and flanges; 15A electrical capacity with built-in resettable circuit breaker; and 120-volt, 50/60Hz electrical compatibility.
