Medical Gas System and Their Low Voltage Requirements

Low voltage electrical wiring can be found in a number of devices used throughout a medical gas system. Components such as: Sensors, Alarms, Manifolds are among the most common. These devices are sometimes wired improperly during the time of installation. The reason being, is that most electricians are not familiar with the testing procedures of a medical gas systems, making sure that they have correctly landed the wires they are working with.

Our electrical service department has become larger and more prevalent in the medical gas field in the recent days. Medical Testing Solutions verifiers and inspectors conducting our annual facility inspections are finding in many cases that the Master alarm panels were not wired for the incorrect alerts that are intended for. Another common mistake found when testing a master alarm system is that the medical vacuum pumps and medical air compressors do not relay all the correct signals to the panels. This can be detrimental to the machines, as they could be in need of maintenance and the alarms are not tied into the system.

At Medical Testing Solutions, our team of certified electricians in conjunction with our certified medical gas verifies can ensure the proper signals are tied into the correct panels and then verified for proper operation.

Whats The Cost? Cost varies by the distance of the low voltage wiring, and by the number of devices needed to be connected. We can usually give you an estimate over the phone, just call 1+(844) 768-5744 or fill out the call back form on this page.

What do we need to know before we do it: Scroll down to our Low Voltage Wiring Checklist for important information on how to prepare for your your wiring service.

Low Voltage Wiring Checklist

  • Power for master, area alarms, sensors, and switches from the life safety branch of the essential electrical system
  • Power for local alarms, dew point sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors are permitted to be from the same essential electrical branch used to power the air compressor systems and vacuum pumps.
  • Essential electrical systems shall have a minimum of the following two independent sources of power: a normal source generally supplying the entire electrical system and one or more alternate.
  • Generator sets installed as an alternate source of power for essential electrical systems shall be designed to meet the requirements of such services
