NHS Sites UPS
For NHS sites with the requirement to provide alternative and resilient power sources the use of an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is critical to provide:
- a ride through while alternative sources are selected or started in event of mains power failure
- continual conditioning of incoming power to protect a wide range of sensitive equipment from all types of the 9 power anomalies
We are able to specify, install and maintain the latest UPS technology for the healthcare industry, using a wide range of products from the world’s top manufacturers.
We can select the best products from this range to provide:
- resilience and ‘five 9’s’ availability delivered from modular and N+1 system designs
- high efficiency systems providing real cost savings in energy costs over existing UPS systems
- battery systems specified to deliver the required autonomy while ensuring that the selection of battery delivers the very best solution against a range of selection factors including cost, size and environmental conditions, etc.
Using the latest UPS and battery technology allows us to help ensure that the very highest environmental requirements are met in the manufacture, handling and disposal of equipment, while ensuring the security of critical hospital site and healthcare power systems.
Critical Areas UPS
Hospitals utilise equipment for medical procedures that cannot be simply switched off or indeed interrupted during a surgical procedure.
Operating theatres, intensive care wards, scanning and imaging equipment must have secure supplies both to ensure high availability of the systems and to ensure the equipment can continue to function or be safely shutdown in the event of a power issue.
Every healthcare and medical facility is now totally reliant on its IT infrastructure for voice and data communications, transmitting/storing/viewing medical records, running the hospital environment and accessing wider NHS resources.
Providing secure power to the key data centres and network core devices is critical if the hospital is to function during power failures.
The same applies to any Healthcare site, we are able to specify, install and maintain solutions which will provide high availability, high power density system designs to support core IT infrastructure and key medical locations & medical equipment.
Local Support UPS
Although the main infrastructure components within a hospital or healthcare site are supported, the loss of local services can have a significant impact.
Individual IT cabinets housing access switches and local services provide both voice and data communications.
With unified communications both voice and data services are wholly reliant on the Local Area Network (LAN).
Outages on this critical network cannot be permitted.
We have developed ‘feel better’ Healthcare UPS solutions for the hospital IT director to allow UPS systems to be installed in each cabinet to provide a zero maintenance option in an environment which is often hostile to standard lead acid batteries.
Using our wide temperature, high cyclic, high performance Lead Crystal® Battery we can provide systems that will be maintenance free for 7+ years where other systems with standard batteries will fail after 1-2 years of use.
We save money, reduce maintenance costs and allow the hospital to protect the key local services.
Some of our own built products such as long runtime battery solutions provide support for critical local services such as printers and critical user devices.
We can provide systems which can support a printer or local device for many hours in a compact solution.
Portable Devices UPS
Harland Simon is a manufacturer of bespoke UPS systems for the Healthcare sector.
We are able to design, prototype and manufacture systems designed for specific applications within a healthcare or hospital environment including small portable UPS placed in a mobile trolley supporting sensitive equipment and laptops used for patient monitoring or providing communications services on the move is a key part of todays modern medical emergency services.
We can provide bed mounted or trolley mounted systems for a range of specific applications.
