Burmeier’s 24-volt drive system provides an ideal safety standard for caring for people at home. All live 230-volt components are banished from the care bed. The electronic SwitchMode voltage transformer is fitted in a housing adjacent to the mains plug. Occupants therefore enjoy a high level of safety.
The SwitchMode power supply unit produces a 24-volt safety extra-low voltage directly at the socket.
The bed has no current-carrying components except when the handset is in use. Power consumption drops by up to 93% as a result. Even more costs and effort are saved by the fact that leakage current measurements are no longer necessary, as certified by TÜV Rheinland. In principle, the required leakage current measurement must be carried out every 2 years for care beds in commercial use. The use of the 24-volt system prolongs this interval so that measurements are not necessary within the expected lifetime of the bed. The applicable lifetime is indicated in the operating instructions.
Even when taking the bed into service, leakage current measurements are unnecessary as these have already been carried out in the factory. As a result, it is also not necessary for an electrically trained person to be involved in assembling the bed – this saves the bed operator additional costs.
