Potential Equalisation Socket – OEM

The publication of BS 7671 (17th Edition of the Wiring Regulations) Amendment 3 defines that it is now a mandated requirement in accordance with Section 710 to provide supplementary equipotential bonding in a UK healthcare facility at every Group 1 and Group 2 medical location. The same requirement applies globally within HD 60 364-7-710.

In all such medical locations this earthing facility must be provided whether bedhead services are supplied within trunking systems (medical supply units) or by wall mounted outlets.

The POAG-PES-WM solution is a fully compliant off-the-shelf quick fix solution to meeting this requirement and is available in either 1, 2 or 4 gang versions and in each case fitted to a single BS 4662 size accessory plate. A 47mm deep back box is required to ensure ease of fitment and connection.

A polyester powder coated steel facia plate as required by HTM 06-01 in the patient environment is supplied complete with fixings screws to secure into the wall box, a supplementary earth lead and potential equalisation socket (1, 2 or 4 as required by the facia plate piercing) as a complete ready-to-go assembly.

Each CABLEFLOW Medical Supply unit is manufactured to the highest standards and to a quality expected of a British manufacturer from across a broad and universally applicable product range. The inclusion of third party nurse call systems into our bedhead services units ensures continuum of infrastructure yet opportunity to use the most up to date containment solutions and remains a key feature of our offering.
