Improving power quality in healthcare facilities

Power quality specialist, CP Automation, now supplies what Janitza says are its ‘industry-leading test and measurement products’ to the UK market.

The former says the development will see its customers equipped with a full power quality service – from the identification to the mitigation of harmful power quality issues, helping maximise uptime in hospitals. The Janitza portfolio offers ‘a whole suite of power quality solutions aimed at maximising hospital power uptime’ – including digital measurement equipment, universal-measurement devices, power factor controllers, and peak demand management systems. CP Automation says such equipment is essential to comply with standards such as IEC/EN 61000-4-30, EN 50160, and IEEE 519, through the monitoring of harmonics, current, and voltage imbalances, and any transients or rapid voltage changes.

It said: “Of particular importance when maintaining power quality for healthcare facilities is the monitoring of residual currents from unwanted conductive paths — something the Janitza product line offers in abundance. Power analysers like the UMG 96-PQ-L offer cost-effective power quality analysis, residual current monitoring (RCM), and temperature monitoring, to ensure complete power quality transparency at every level, and thus avoid system failures.”

“Healthcare facilities will benefit from the RCM capabilities offered by Janitza products, as it means they can overcome the need for mandatory testing and power disconnection,” said John Mitchell, global Sales and Marketing director at CP Automation. Janitza’s GridVis power grid monitoring software plays a critical role in the RCM capabilities by facilitating continuous monitoring, which allows operators to detect issues early. and avoid the need for periodic shutdowns.”

Primarily focused on applications in drives, automation and power quality, CP Automation says it ‘works closely with customers to create bespoke solutions’.
