Isolated power systems offer an invaluable advantage – early detection of ground faults allowing for critical systems to remain online in a single-fault condition. Utilizing the newest technology and complying with the latest standards and code requirements, Bender‘s equipment ensures that electrical ground faults are detected and located quickly and automatically.

NFPA 99 and CSA Z32 standards require isolated power systems to be in all areas deemed “wet procedure locations” in healthcare facilities. Bender’s new isolated power panels adhere to these standards and are specifically engineered for healthcare facilities with a modular design, enabling the system to be easily upgraded after initial installation.

In conjunction with the release of the new isolated power panels, Bender will be expanding its service offerings for these systems. Services will include maintenance and retrofitting of obsolete equipment, troubleshooting of alarms, nationwide coverage from factory trained and authorized technicians, and much more.
