General safety features

 
 

Enhancing safety often involves a mix of several initiatives. Enabling healthcare applications to comply with applicable rules requires a broad focus.

At LINAK we have a high focus on specific product safety features. However, we also consider overall perspectives of general safety.

Cable locking

Cable locking
LINAK products include cable locks to ensure that cables are connected at all times and the application is ready for electrical movement. LINAK has a continuous focus on developing products for easy and safe cable mounting and the control boxes are constructed with a strong cable lock. A closed top lid ensures that your cables are always connected and that plugs are protected from physical stress and strong detergents.

 
PU cable

EPR cables
Like PU cables, the EPR mains are flexible and reinforced. This helps avoid breakage even when subjected to harsh treatment. This prolongs the life of the cable.

 
 
Test washability

Water protection
Many healthcare applications must be able to withstand water and detergents when washed. Increased focus on hygiene means sharper requirements for IP-ratings in applications. That is why LINAK products for healthcare are at least IPX4 rated. However, when required, our systems can rate as high as IPX6 Washable DURA™.

 
COXX Service Data Tool

Service Data Tool (SDT)
SDT makes it possible to read out service data from the OpenBus™ control box by informing about the use of the actuator system. SDT acts as preventive maintenance by disclosing wear and tear long before the system fails. This ensures minimal downtime as maintenance can be scheduled in due time. Efficient maintenance also helps prevent misuse, thus prolonging the equipment life.

 

Flammability Classified
LINAK products are made of UL94 flammability classified materials – i.e. in compliance with IEC 60601-1 requirements. Moreover, the LINAK control boxes are made of a UL94 V0 material, an even tougher requirement than stated in IEC 60601-1, to minimise the risk of fire hazards.
