MICROSENS presents network technology for medical facilities at DMEA (Digital Medical Expertise & Applications)

Digital transformation requires high performance, reliable and secure data networks in hospitals, clinics and practices. That's why "Connecting Digital Health" is the motto of the DMEA (formerly conhIT – Connecting Healthcare IT) in Berlin from 9 to 11 April. In Hall 2.2, on Stand A-107, MICROSENS presents ways in which medical tech-nology consistently achieve this.

MICROSENS Medical Switches in the medical field

Keywords from the DMEA 2019 program include IT security, digital security, care and nursing, healthcare IT and digital patient empowerment. IT-based solutions are finding their way into medicine on all levels. Digital diagnostics and treatment systems generate huge data volumes which have to be reliably transferred, analysed, processed, and stored. The infrastructural basis for this is the MICROSENS Medical Switch: With the use of medical switches, hospital operators meet the requirements of the applicable standards for signal separation in the patient environment. This also facilitates compliance with the respective national regulations on the installation, operation and use of medical devices and their combination with IT networks.

Instead of costly rewiring, the existing twisted-pair networks in hospitals and medical practices can be simply and cost-effectively expanded by using the Medical Switch. Retrofitting can be carried out during ongoing clinical operations with minimal disruption and offers performance and safety where they are needed: at the outer edge of the network, at the terminal connection.

The switch is tailor-made for the requirements of a medical environment and ensures the safety of the patients and medical equipment by means of four electrically isolated 10/100/1000 Mbps connections with integrated network insulators. The Medical Switch fulfils requirements in terms of patient protection with 2 MOPP and even exceeds the strict stipulations according to EN 60601-1 / IEC 60601-1 (min. 4 kV) for medical electrical devices. The surface of the Medical Switch is made up of robust plastic and permits effective cleaning and disinfection. It is optionally available with an antibacterial coating.

The company from Hamm (Westphalia) is represented in Hall 2.2 on Stand A-107.

Transmitting information via fiber optic connections offers numerous benefits. MICROSENS GmbH & Co. KG recognised this very early on. As one of the pioneers, the company has developed and produced high-performance communications and transmission systems in Germany since 1993. Individually matched to the demands of diverse usage areas and embedded in comprehensive concepts for individual sectors. But, above all, close to the customer. Technical challenges from customer projects are incorporated directly into product development. This way, IP-based automation solutions are created for modern buildings, cost-efficient network concepts for the office and workspace, robust and fail-safe solutions for industrial environments, optical transport systems future-oriented wide area networks and efficient coupling of sites and computer centres.
