Bear Begins Producing Second-Gen Custom Medical Power Supply


New design for 75 Watt AC-DC converter with CF-rated and BF-rated outputs features higher efficiency, 20% lower costs

Phelps, NY – Bear Power Supplies has begun production of a second-generation dual-output medical AC-DC converter that it designed for a leading global producer of medical instruments.

Bear Power Supplies’ US-based contract electronics design team developed the second-generation power supply to increase efficiency and deliver a 20% reduction in manufacturing costs. It is a drop-in replacement for the first-generation power supply. The customer will also use it to replace commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) power supplies in several other of its medical systems.

Bear designed and has manufactured the first generation of this custom medical power supply at its USA contract manufacturing center, located near Rochester, New York.

The 75 Watt medical power supply has universal input and two outputs. The CF-rated output features an ultra-low capacitance of less than 15 pF, and can be switched off when not needed. The BF-rated output remains active to supply electronics used in the vicinity of a patient.
