An example of compliance with the limit values is the leakage current. This current incorrectly flows through the protective conductor and according to the law may not be higher than 500µA. In the United States, the limit is 300µA. In medical technology, every device used (computer, screen, laser or camera) creates a leakage current. With the often high number of medical devices in a room, the limit is very quickly reached and exceeded. Necessary counter-measures: A medical isolating transformer like REOMED.
As such, REOMED is frequently found on trolleys. The trolleys carry numerous medical devices that are common in hospitals, medical research centres or operating theatres. The isolating transformer provides the power supply for every device connected to it.
