Power Quality and Environmental Monitor
GE Healthcare provides the global medical community with a wide array of quality diagnostic imaging systems that operate on electrical power. In this project, GE Healthcare sought an accurate, cost effective, electrical power quality and environmental measurement system. Our PQEM (Power Quality Environmental Monitor) SCOPE team developed a device to monitor an imaging system’s input power, provide real-time assessment of power quality according to industry standards, and provide event logging and long term data storage. The PQEM also senses and records the environment in which an imaging product operates and communicates over a wireless local area network. The team delivered a functional prototype as well as design documentation for an intuitive, easy to use, robust power quality environmental monitor.
