Socomec UPS provides critical power protection for hospital

laboratory
Essential to the uninterrupted operation of equipment is that catheter laboratory at Cheltenham General Hospital is a Socomec Sicon 160 kVA Delphys Elite uninterruptible power supply.
Critical power protection for the new catheter laboratory of Cheltenham General Hospital is provided by a Socomec Sicon 160 kVA Delphys Elite UPS system. It ensures total power continuity for the Innova 2100 equipment. Innova provides surgeons with high-resolution images while they perform angioplasty and cartoid stenting. It is essential to have an uninterruptible power supply, particularly during a critical 7-minute period when power loss would leave the surgeon blind to the position of the catheter in the artery. The Delphys Elite was specified by Engineering Services Design Practice of Redditch. It has an IGBT rectifier for extremely low harmonic re-injection, a THDi of less than 3% (without filters) and a power factor of 0.99. These features ensure it will now interfere with the integrity of sensitive equipment.
