Are Health Care facility equipped for the digital age?
The answer is a resounding no !!. One of the challenges faced by the growing sector is ensuring the required Power quality to sustain high-speed production. Harmonic distortion, which generally results from nonlinear loads in the power system, poses one of the greatest threats to Power quality in the sector.For power utility boards, the goal is to meet the facilities power demand, while ensuring low losses and improved electrical loading patterns. Health care facilities are missing the opportunity to improve power quality, reliability and enhance efficiency substantially.
Power quality, electrical efficiency and reliability are all interconnected and contribute enormously to reliable and efficient operation of health equipment’s.
To take advantage of IoT (Internet of things)and other advanced technologies what is absolutely essential is a good electrical distribution and management, it also underscores the importance of reliable power distribution and management in healthcare facilities and highlights the opportunity to integrate IoT-enabled power solutions to better meet health facility objectives.
With the rapid advancement in IoT technologies, there is an opportunity for these facilities to retrofit or upgrade their systems with IoT-enabled solutions that can create efficiency and improve energy and financial performance.
Adding smart devices, such as sensors, digital power meters or power quality monitors and Power quality improvement devices like Advanced Universal Harmonic filters or Harmonic Mitigating Transformers (HMT)to existing equipment is an affordable way to optimize power reliability and maintenance and can pave the way for efficient and intelligent power distribution.
It is a myth that UPS alone provides complete protection and reliability. Most UPS do not Provide Isolation or save energy. The Harmonics generated by the Power supplies of the Medical equipment is not mitigated, and remains to have adverse effects on the medical equipment itself. Hence it is absolutely critical to have a Quality power to optimize technology.
