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.
