The system meets strict agency safety standards, such as the third edition of IEC 60601-1. Anton/Bauer Shelton, CT, USA +1 800 541 1667 www.antonbauer.com Magnetoresistive sensors With the Nanopower series of magnetoresistive-sensor integrated circuits (ICs), Honeywell Sensing and Control has introduced a component option that allows manufacturers of medical equipment to design smaller, less-obtrusive wireless- technology-based products without stinting on device reliability or performance. The sensitivity and reliability of these ICs compare favourably with those of traditional sensors, yet the magnetoresistive design consumes less energy. Because these components are also smaller, they enhance equipment design flexibility. Medical device applications include hospital beds, in which the sensors can be used to sense the starting and ending position of a bed being adjusted, and infusion pumps, in which a sensor is used to detect when the cartridge is in position and the device is released to operate. Additionally, these sensors are suitable for battery-powered equipment applications in which reed switches have traditionally been used. Honeywell Sensing and Control Rolle, Switzerland +41 21 695 3983 www.honeywell.com/sensing Low-profile power adapters The TMP92 series of economical medical- grade AC-DC desktop power adapters are packaged in a low-profile black-coloured plastic enclosure and measure just 5.51 × 2.80 × 0.87 in. Available from Trumpower, the Class II units are furnished with an IEC 320/C8 AC inlet without a ground pin, and Class I units come with an IEC 320/ C6 AC inlet that has a ground pin. These power supplies can operate at universal AC input power, 90 to 264 V, 47 to 63 Hz. The series offers standard single-output voltages of 12, 18, 19 or 24 V with continuous output power of 90 W; nonstandard output voltages and other connector options than the standard 5.5 × 2.1 × 11-mm right-angle barrel plug are available upon request. The series is approved by UL and TÜV to the latest third-edition medical standards.
