Medical equipment is sensitive to power deviations and interference. It is very important to keep the power lines clean to prevent it from malfunctioning and reduce the risk of harming the patient. Regular power line inspections will help correct problems early before they get out of hand.


The common cause of equipment malfunction is poor power quality. The computers, fluorescent lamps and laboratory equipment found in medical institutions contribute to power line noise. It is important to determine the amount of power line distortion to help calculate for the proper compensation. Using 
power quality analyzers helps maintenance personnel determine the extent of power noise present in the electrical system.

If you are planning to invest in an analyzer, you might want to check out some Megger or Fluke power quality analyzers. These tools are reliable and offer great features to make testing convenient and fast. If you plan to invest in these diagnostic tools, consider renting one to assess and find the one that fits your needs.
