Medical Isolation Transformers are transformer used in medical facilities to power medical equipment. These transformers are designed to provide isolated AC power with noise suppression and are designed to withstand AC transients.
Noise can disturb sensitive medical equipment and interfere with measurements. Medical Transformers are designed with withstand short-circuits and are explosion proof.
They are also designed to have very low leakage currents. Excess leakage currents can cause unwanted and sometimes dangerous physiological effects in the patient.
Medical Isolation Transformer come in a box shaped enclosure to which the equipment can be connected.
Transformers are designed to withstand a very high hipot voltage.
