The IPL Isolated Power Panel is designed to supply power to remote Laser Outlet Modules located in multiple procedure rooms from a single, centrally located panel. This panel is typically installed in a hospital operating room or other procedure room designated for laser procedures. This is a cost effective way to provide high voltage output to multiple locations from a single panel.
Standard configuration includes a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) system. This system protects against accidental overload and allows power to be selectively provided to the location needed. The outlet is energized by opening the receptacle cover, activating the contact switch and signaling the panel PLC to power the circuit. Once energized, the circuit is locked on until the device is disconnected and the cover is closed. The lockout feature can also limit the number of energized outlets, allowing the hospital to control the number of laser procedures performed at any one time.
Up to 12 outlets can be connected to the IPL Panel. The number of energized outlets operated simultaneously is determined by the transformer capacity and the distance of outlet locations from the panel. The PLC protects against overloading the panel transformer. For more information, see design recommendations here.

- Special low leakage wire should always be used for the powered conductors of branch circuit wiring. XPLE type insulation such as XHHW-2 wire is recommended with a dielectric constant of less than 3.5. Standard type insulation such as THHN is appropriate for the incoming primary and the ground wires only.
- The NEC (Article 517.160) requires secondary circuits to be colored brown and orange, with a distinctive stripe in a contrasting color. The brown wire is connected to the L2 bus and the hot side (brass screw) of a standard NEMA receptacle. The orange wire, L1 is connected to the silver screw where neutral would be connected. Polarity should be maintained throughout the installation.
- Conduit runs for branch circuits should be as short and direct as possible to minimize accumulated leakage current in the circuit conductors. Generally, 400‐450 feet is the maximum recommended cumulative length of for all branch conductors from a single transformer. Avoid unnecessary bends and junctions.
- Do not use pulling compounds to lubricate inside of conduit. This will break down the insulation properties and raise leakage current. A dry talc powder may be used. It is typical to use conduit with a slightly larger diameter to ease pulling and avoid damage to wire insulation. An interior coating of PVC may also be used.
- Isolated power circuits must be kept separate from other circuits. Do not share conduit or raceway with non‐isolated circuits, or isolated circuits from another system.
- Each receptacle and equipment grounding connector must be connected back to Reference Ground Bus inside Isolation Panel to maintain Equipotential grounding system. If multiple panels serve the same space, they must be bonded together.
