Failure or interruption of power to critical devices is not an option in the Medical and Healthcare sectors. The reason is simple – human lives could be at risk.
Helios has partnered exclusively with a number of renowned DC Power Supply manufacturers servicing the medical sector, which are certified to Medical Quality Manufacturing System ISO 12485. They use DFMEA (Design Failure Mode Effects Analysis), PFMEA (Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis) and ISO14971 (risk management for medical devices) to ensure products are as reliable and safe as possible.

Helios’ DC systems can be customised to suit any application with options including IP-rated and portable solutions, labelling, special terminations/connections, remote monitoring and control, N+X redundancy level, mounting and form factor, status signals and control, voltage adjustment (knob/pot), special input and multioutput options, and conformal coating.
Case Study - Custom Medical DC Power Supplies
The Newborn & Pediatric Emergency Transport Service at Westhead Children’s Hospital
Special custom designed DC UPS & AC UPS which is mounted under a stretcher to power all the lifesaving equipment on the stretcher bridge. The output is backed up by a four cell Lithium Ion Phosphate battery pack.
The AMP-K4910 is a Quad-input device (12VDC / 24VDC / 240VAC and Battery) with dual output (12VDC & 240VAC). It includes 4 x12V isolated Li-FePO4 cell chargers. It also includes control inputs for the 12VDC and 240VAC outputs and LOW VOLTAGE BATTERY disconnection. The battery connection can also be controlled externally.
In Stand Alone Mode (without external controller), the battery will be connected as long as the Battery Voltage is higher than 12.8V (2.9V per cell) and 24VDC or MAINS input are present. It will guarantee that any fluctuation in these two inputs will be smoothed by the battery keeping the outputs (12VDC and 240VAC) constant at any time.
