CAL A is registered in the Directory of Medical Devices of the Ministry of Health with assigned sequence number 326 424. CAL A is a Medical Device marked CE according to Directive 93/42CEE and is manufactured and tested in Italy
The bed head units of the CAL A series are the perfect combination of quality, functionality and price.
Designed to fit perfectly in the hospital rooms, they are made of extruded aluminium and
can be equipped with conduits to contain electrical facilities or medical gases.
Usually equipped with electrical, communication services, medical gas outlets, they are also offered with a nurse call system and integrated with direct and indirect light sources and with room night lighting for reading and a visiting light for the medical staff.
In essence, the CAL A series is designed to comply with all what is required of a medical device for a hospital, in compliance with applicable regulations.
LED lighting is made with high-efficiency modules. LED Modules are sized by our technical office to provide the best light emissions based on the characteristics of the environment.
modules are installed in the unit, which guarantee a very long life of the product with high luminous efficiency and low consumption (more light generated with less power). The light is clear and brilliant, the perception of the human eye is of natural illumination. The color temperature is calibrated to provide the best compromise between patient well-being and the operational need of the ward. Light emission, on request, can be dimmable by button, DALI protocol, 1-10V switch, or smartphone/tablet APP.
General indirect lighting is usually performed with LED Modules, of a different power and length according to the requirements and the size of the unit. A prismatic methacrylate cover plate, fixed to the top cover, protects the lamps from dust. The reading and medical examinations light, an optical system with prismatic methacrylate, is normally supplied LED Modules. With CAL A there is also the possibility to mount a blue LED strip, to help orientation during the night hours.
CAL A - SECTION
It is the more compact versione: electrical facilities, peripheral communication devices and up to three pipes for medical gases are contained in separate sectors in a single profile. The terminal units for medical gases are hosted in a special box.
Compact modular units up to 6.4 metres length in one piece, contain the necessary installations for electrical, lighting, communications and medical gas facilities. They are made of extruded aluminium with rounded edges, aluminium end covers. One or more conduits in extruded aluminium to house the electrical facilities or additional medical gases can be applied to the main unit, thus separating them from the basic equipment.
1. Mains voltage conductors
2. Gas pipes
3. Indirect light
4. Informatic Cables
5. Reflector Lighting
6. Upper light plate
7. Direct visiting and reading light
8. Lower light plate
9. Low voltage conductors
Thanks to its amplitude, the B type conduit enables to use a high amount of electrical facilities in a unit of limited length.
The D type conduit is used to rationalise the distribution of medical gases in the bed head unit; appropriate brackets allow to install the terminal units.
CAL A is fixed to the wall, using screws and wall plugs suitable for the type of masonry at a recommended height of 1750 mm. (Cal A axis) from the ground.
EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS
CAL A is an electric unit ready for connection to a central point, with sockets and switches already wired to the central terminal connection. The electrical equipment can be chosen from among all the series on the market, without any constraint except to verify its compatibility, in terms of mechanical size, with the structure and the size of CAL A.
For the proper identification of the primary characteristics of CAL A it is recommended to:
- Determine the most appropriate lighting configuration;
- Specify the total length of the unit;
- Specify if the power supply is on the left or on the right;
- Specify the position of the bedside table;
- Specify the electrical services deemed necessary
These data will be reviewed and processed by our Technical Department which will provide mechanical and electrical drawings related to the project, if necessary, adapting them to the building requirements and relevant regulations.
