July 1, 2008 - Del Global Technologies Corp. is producing the Del Load Center (DLC), the first of a new generation of green products the company will be manufacturing, unifying the power supply for an entire radiographic diagnostic X-ray suite by connecting all equipment to a single source of power.
The wall-mounted control panel power activates the DLC with a key switch. Then, with the push of a button, power is supplied to the entire X-ray system. A "power on" light indicates whether the equipment in the room is on or off and an emergency override shut off switch is included as a safety feature.
Placement of the control panel near the entrance door is designed to allow for quick, efficient powering up and down of the entire room. In addition to saving time, powering down the entire room when not in use for extended periods of time can be easily achieved, contributing to the energy efficiency of imaging facilities.
The move to green in healthcare is evidenced by initiatives such as the Environmental Preferable Purchasing (EPP) Policy Statement for Health Care issued by the Global Health and Safety Initiative (GHSI), a sector-wide collaboration created to transform the way healthcare designs, builds and operates facilities and the products used in those facilities. Del is committed to ongoing research and design that will lead to other green products.
