Bridgeport Intros Isolation Xformer Kit
Medical isolation transformer.
Shelton, CT — The Tortran Division of Bridgeport Magnetics Group Inc. has introduced its ISO-PUCK II, a line of enclosed hospital-grade isolation transformers with more features and at significant cost savings to the buyer.

The new transformers are available for North American installations in three power ratings; 400, 800 and 1200VA with input and output voltages of 115V/60Hz. For international installations, the ISO-PUCK II is available in power ratings of 350VA, 650VA and 1000VA with 230V/50-60Hz input and output voltages of 117V or 230V/50-60Hz line frequencies.

The design of the ISO-PUCK II offers four new important features. In addition to offering a 20 percent price reduction of same power ratings of the original ISO-PUCK, the steel housing has been replaced with a molded Polycarbonate enclosure with an embedded IEC60320 C-13 receptacle. A green LED light indicates that power is on. Installed between the wall outlet and any electrical or electronic apparatus used in Patient Care Areas, the transformer provides increased safety from electric shock for both staff and patients at hospitals, medical clinics, doctors' and dentists' offices and other healthcare facilities. As the design of the ISO-PUCK II transformer complies with the required maximum leakage current for patient care areas, these facilities can now save money by purchasing commercial-grade computers, printers, monitors and other devices instead of the more expensive medical grade models. For room installation, the housing includes a keyhole for easy single-screw wall mounting. With its sleek design and neutral off-white color, the ISO-PUCK blends well in any type of environment. Its round shape makes it easy to keep clean.

The ISO-PUCK also offers cost benefits to the medical OEM industry as it can easily be installed in a rack or inside a piece of equipment using the threaded insert located on its rear surface. The 60Hz models of the new ISO-PUCK II isolation transformer come with a two-foot 14 AWG long input cord with North American style NEMA 5-15P green dot hospital-grade plug to be connected to a grounded wall outlet.

The output is to an IEC 60320 C-13 receptacle embedded in the front of the housing. Three standard length cords with IEC 60320 C-14 plug at one end and IEC60320-C13 receptacle at the other end will be stocked and sold separately: 2, 6, and 10 feet (0.6, 1.8, and 3m).
