You know the different types of power supplies: Linear models are known for their reliability, transient response and low ripple and noise, while switch-mode units are compact with high efficiency levels and wide input voltage ranges.
Switch-mode power supplies usually have ample efficiency, but their unpredictable noise can be problematic. For medical applications, the goal is to find a power supply that exhibits both low noise and high efficiency—a rare feat. It’s also important to choose one that meets both patient and operator safety requirements.
Hemedex, a maker of blood flow monitors, was able to strike this balance in its Bowman Perfusion Monitor. Read our latest case study to find out how.Download the Case Study
