When it comes to providing emergency power for the healthcare market it is also vital that UPS systems, batteries and switchgear adhere to very specific regulations and operating recommendations. This is especially important for applications such as theatre backup, operating lights, scanners and redundancy. Our commitment to this sector means that we have unparalleled knowledge of the operational intricacies and challenges presented by this sector.
Our experience extends far beyond just supporting the IT infrastructure, we protect clinical laboratory equipment, mobile apparatus such as diagnostic equipment, patient monitoring systems, complete operating theatres and emergency rooms, diagnostic devices and digital imaging systems. All of these rely on a continuous power source to avoid malfunctions, system errors and prevention of costly downtime.
Trusted by leading healthcare authorities across the UK, we have completed over 100 three phase UPS installs for Siemens Healthcare, carried out several £millions worth of UPS work for other groups supplying UPS solutions for over half the operating theatres in the country.
Regulations we comply to:
HTM (Health and Safety Memorandum)
