Medical connectors

POAG terminals, connectors and cables for potential equalization

Applications

  • Potential equalization between medical equipments in hospitals or doctor's offices

The IEC 60364-7-710 standard requires that additional protective equipotential bonding be provided in all Group 1 and 2 medical locations. The purpose of additional potential equalization is to equalize potentials between different metal parts that can be touched simultaneously, or to reduce differences of potential which can occur during operation between the bodies of medical electrical devices and conductive parts of other objects.
The Stäubli connector is specially shaped so as to prevent accidental disconnection when in use, while allowing the lead to be removed without the need for tools.
The items for potential equalization listed in the catalog take into account the requirements on potential equalization conductors set in IEC 60601-1 and are also tested according to the DIN 42801 TÜV type.
