Potential Equalisation Socket WM Series
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.
