New Yorker Electronics has supplemented its medical electronics device offerings with the release of Mallory Sonalert Audible Medical Alarms in both speaker and piezoelectric transducer types. The Audible Medical Alarms from Mallory Sonalert’s broad product line are used in almost every type of medical application, from consumer handheld meters to infant monitors.

The SBS speaker series offers more sound level than the smaller MSS speaker series making it suitable for louder medical environments such as operating rooms. Both the MSS and SBS are suited for use in handheld devices as they do not pull as much current.

The SBT piezo series is louder and offers ultra-low current. This makes it very useful as a battery or for back-up power applications that run on super-caps. All three series are available with circuitry and have melody options to let medical equipment designers choose which sounds they need for their application.

As medical technology advances, more types of warnings are needed. In Europe, adhering to the standards of IEC60601-1-8 is mandatory but it is voluntary in the USA. Mallory Sonalert’s Medical Alarms are made in the USA and meet these stringent criteria and more to earn the IEC60601-1-8 specification.

These highly reliable devices handle the monitoring of cardiac signs, drug and fluid delivery, equipment failure, oxygen delivery and more and are used by all major medical electronics companies for hospital beds, drug dispensers, defibrillators, dialysis, MRIs, surgery equipment, incubators and other essential health monitoring devices.

The RoHS-compliant, UL-certified medical alarms are lightweight (6 g to 16 g) yet range in typical loudness from 85 dBa to 95 dBa @ 10 cm with the MSS and SBT series and 95dBa to 105dBa @ 10 cm with the SBS series.
