Dental Power Supplies
At Artesyn Embedded Power, our engineers have been designing and developing power supply products for the dental market for over 35 years. Our products have helped pave the way for advancements in a wide variety of dental applications, including infusion pump controls, x-ray machines, gamma imaging systems and MRI scanners.
Given that designing modern high-efficiency AC-DC power supplies is a craft in itself, and that dental equipment has to undergo strict compliance testing, most designers nowadays elect to use standard commercially available medical power supplies, or seek the help of a specialist power supply company to create a customized unit. Using power supplies that are already pre-approved to the EN60601-1 safety standard helps dental equipment manufacturers speed compliance testing of their own products, and minimizes the risk of them encountering unexpected development problems outside their own area of expertise, which might negatively impact launch targets.
