Military Grade Defibrillator
Our client is a top manufacturer of medical equipment and software. They specialize in electrical equipment for medical applications, including CPR, temperature measurement and defibrillation.
For this particular project, they were seeking a custom power supply solution for military-grade defibrillators. This meant they were faced with the challenge of combining the stringent safety requirements for medical equipment with the reliability and robustness needed for military environments.
With COTS options falling short of their requirements, they came to Wall Industries to find a solution. With decades of experience in designing custom medical and military power supplies, we were confident we could deliver.
Our client required a DC-DC converter manufactured in the U.S. that could charge their military-grade defibrillators in ground vehicles or aircraft. The supply needed to have a wide input voltage range, and also meet commercial and military EMI, shock and vibration, and safety approvals.
It was important that the supply could operate in full capacity for any application, whether it be on land, air or sea. This meant it needed to be able to meet the varied and complex standards that cover these environments. It also needed to be robust enough to withstand the extreme conditions that may be encountered in military contexts, including high temperatures.
Although this military power supply would be used in a military environment, it would also need to meet medical power supply specifications due to the nature of the application. This means that in addition to MIL specs, it also needed to meet the stringent requirements of EN 60601-1.
The Wall Industries sales and engineering team worked closely with this customer, using our multi-step design process to understand their vision and requirements for this supply.
We engaged in an in-depth review of the desired specifications for this design. Our engineering team was able to make expert recommendations and submit a first draft for feedback and approval from the customer. We were able to create a power supply with a wide input range that was also approved to EN 60601-1 3rd edition medical standard as well as the DO-160 military aircraft standard. The supply also met commercial and military EMI, safety, and shock and vibration requirements.
The customer was pleased with the design, gave their approval, and Wall began manufacturing their new custom product.
