Rapidly advancing healthcare technology is transforming the way patients are being diagnosed and treated. From sensitive medical imaging equipment to connected devices, data monitoring, and lab tests, the future of healthcare lies in working hand in hand with technology, and with that comes the need for efficient power generation and protection.
When compared with other hospital technologies, the visual progression of an uninterruptible power supply (UPS systems) has seemed somewhat gradual. This is predominantly down to the critical requirement for a power supply to be running ‘24/7’, and the knowledge that using proven technology means it will simply work when needed, so why reinvent the wheel?
However, over the past decade or so, a UPS system’s internal components have advanced to be more efficient, driven mainly by the commercial market to improve overall efficiency or PUE (Power Usage Effectiven
