Why Custom Switchgear Systems Are Important for Hospitals?
Posted By: 
Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Power system manufacturers recommend standard equipment for normal spaces. On the other hand, custom equipment may be suggested if there are some specific needs. For hospitals, most of the times, custom switchgear systems are manufactured to meet specific requirements.

In hospitals, equipment must be designed and installed without any cut corners to avoid potential malfunctions. This is why custom switchgears are preferred over standard ones. Let’s have a more detailed look at why customer switchgear power systems are important for hospitals, what functions they perform and what their benefits are.

Functions of Custom Switchgear Systems

Switchgear systems help in securing building’s power supply.

For hospitals, the power must remain stable 24/7. If power is uninterrupted at any time of the day, it could prove to be fatal for patients. For instance, if the power suddenly goes out during an operation, it could disrupt the procedure and the end result could lead to some dire consequences like the death of a patient.

Switchgear systems help to keep the power stabilized by managing the load demands of medical equipment and everything else in the hospital.

Benefits that Custom Switchgear Systems Provide

In hospitals, custom switchgear systems are designed because they are more beneficial than standard systems. One benefit that custom switchgear systems offer is that they guarantee adherence to strict standards and requirements of power distribution in hospitals. In addition, a custom designed switchgear may also lower the power costs.

Furthermore, an electrical company keeps the specific requirements of the hospital in view when designing and installing custom switchgears which make them more reliable than standard power systems. Reliability is important as hospitals cannot afford losing power for even a minute since patients, nurses and doctor are always dependent on it.

Location Limitations

In hospitals, switchgear systems face a number of challenges. One challenge is that of the limited space as switchgear power systems require a lot of space. Another challenge is that the equipment is very loud and creates vibrations. The switchgear system must be installed in such a place where it cannot interfere with regular operations of the hospital.

Power Maintenance

Power maintenance is extremely important for electrical equipment in hospitals. If power is not maintained properly, electrical equipment can malfunction putting the safety and life of patients at risk. Switchgear systems maintain the power for the electrical equipment to function efficiently, but to ensure they continue to do so, weekly thorough checkups of the systems are highly recommended.

Proper maintenance of these systems is essential to keep them functional for a long time. Switchgear system should be monitored and if there is any sign of overload, the company that installed the system should be contacted to fix the issue.
Hospitals are one place where we cannot afford any kind of power failures. To ensure that hospitals remain safe from power failures, custom switchgear power systems are recommended. For design and installation of custom switchgear systems in hospitals, contact Elgin Power Solutions. They have many years of experience in application engineering knowledge to design and manufacture custom switchgears which makes them more than ideal for this job.
