Tripp Lite Introduces UL-Compliant Medical-Grade Power Strip with Extra-Long 25-Foot Cord and 20-Amp Plug and Outlets
Chicago, IL—Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has introduced a new UL-1363A-compliant medical-grade power strip approved for use in patient-care vicinities, including operating rooms, patient-care areas, therapy rooms, imaging environments and administrative areas. The 6-outlet PS625HG20AOEM power strip mounts to IV poles, crash carts, and other mobile equipment for use inside and outside the patient vicinity.
Among the PS625HG20AOEM power strip’s advanced features is an extra-long 25-foot power cord that allows medical personnel more flexibility to move connected equipment closer to patients. Two industrial-grade 20-amp circuit breakers protect sensitive components from overloads and short circuits.
The new PS625HG20AOEM power strip also meets the requirements outlined in the CMS categorical waiver, which allows the power strip to be used in healthcare facility patient-care vicinities if the provider/supplier meets all of the listed requirements.
• Extra-long 25-foot 12-gauge power cord allows connected equipment to be moved where needed
• Dual resettable built-in 20A circuit breakers protect against dangerous overloads
• NEMA 5-20P-HG hospital-grade plug and NEMA 5-20R-HG hospital-grade outlets comply with UL 1363A specifications
• Integrated locking safety covers guard against access to unused outlets
• Meets requirements outlined in the CMS categorical waiver
“As our first medical-grade power strip with a 25-foot cord, the PS625HG20AOEM gives medical professionals the flexibility to move connected equipment where it’s most needed,” said Jim Folk, Tripp Lite’s Director of Healthcare Solutions. “An approved cord long enough to reach the center of operating rooms and therapy rooms will better allow patients to receive the immediate care they need.”
