BEAR Power Supplies has introduced a dual-output AC-DC converter for surgical instruments and other medical applications. The CF (Cardiac Floating)-rated output features an ultra-low capacitance of less than 15 pF. The CF-rated output can be switched off when not needed, while the BF (Body Floating)-rated output remains active to supply electronics used in the vicinity of a patient. This 75-Watt medical power supply has universal input. Standard output is +24 V (CF) and +12 V (BF); other voltages are available on request. The power supply has very low EMI and is certified to EN 60601-1-2 (revision 2 and revision 3). It measures 8 x 2.5 x 1.25 inches. Designed and manufactured in the USA, the supplies can be customized to meet OEM requirements for power, voltage, form factor, number of outputs and other specifications. Pricing starts at $80 in OEM volumes. BEAR excels at innovative, high-reliability custom power supplies for medical instruments. The company designs and produce medical power supplies used in diagnostic instruments and patient care devices, from primary care physician offices to operating rooms. Their innovative isolation techniques yield leakage current of less than 5?A, exceeding the requirements for Type CF-rated medical devices. The company excels at customization, even for low volumes: non-standard output voltages, unusual form factors to fit precise size and configuration constraints, and compact sizes for portable medical devices. BEAR has the manufacturing flexibility and capacity to support both low- and high-volume production. BEAR is able to comply with medical device manufacturers' Quality Processes, supporting requirements such as Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) and lot traceability of components. The company has successfully passed quality audits by several of the world's largest medical device manufacturers. All BEAR power supplies are tested to medical equipment safety and EMC standards including UL, IEC, CAN/CSA and EN. BEAR Power Supplies
