Add more power and advanced movement to hospital beds

By introducing the OpenBus™ control box CO71 and the linear actuator LA40 HP (High Performance), LINAK offers even more power and advanced movement options to modern hospital beds.

According to WHO, 1.9 billion people worldwide are overweight – and the number continues to grow. This poses a big challenge to the entire healthcare sector and the adjustable equipment it uses. Hospital beds will be particularly affected by this as the need for more power and advanced movement increases in order to carry heavier working loads safely.

Equipping hospital beds with the new OpenBus™ control box CO71 (350 W SMPS, four channels) and the robust actuator LA40 HP (8,000 N), LINAK® offers you the power you need and provides the advanced movement patterns required to meet these challenges.

Control box CO71

CO71 – a new powerful control box
Adding a 350 W SMPS control box to your hospital bed will grant you more power in systems, where extra power and high performance is needed. The CO71 is the latest addition to the LINAK control box platform. It is prepared for Bluetooth® wireless operation and comes with the advantages of easy cable management, flexible mounting direction, low weight, and IPX6 Washable DURA™ rating.

All CO-boxes are easy to mount and can be delivered with an optional battery backup, ensuring high flexibility when designing the hospital bed. Furthermore, the CO71 is ready for CO-Link™ when extra channels are required to create advanced movement patterns. All managed with just one hand control.
