Hubbell Wiring Device - Kellems

Shelton, Conn. – April 19, 2019 – Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems is pleased to announce the expansion of our industry first offering of UL Listed power strips that are for use in Patient Care Areas. These strips are approved by CMS (Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services) for use in all types of health care facilities.

Hubbell was the first manufacturer to offer a UL 2930 Listed HCOA (Health Care Outlet Assembly) for use in Patient Care Areas, the initial offering included six outlet models that are available in surge protected and non-surge protected versions. In some applications, our customers told us that they needed a 4-outlet version for mounting on IV poles and carts, Hubbell has addressed those needs with this expanded offering.

Hubbell’s new 4-outlet HCOA offering is available in both 15A and 20A versions and may be purchased in surge protected or non-surge protected models with a variety of cord lengths. Hubbell also now offers a mounting bracket to facilitate the mounting of the UL 2930 HCOA on IV poles in the patient room.

“Hubbell was proud to be the first company to offer a CMS approved, and UL Listed product, for patient care areas” says John McFarland, VP of Commercial Marketing. McFarland continued; “Only Hubbell product offers the tamper resistant covers, hospital grade receptacles, UL mandated ground leakage minimization, as well as adhering to the other stringent requirements set forth by Underwriters Laboratories”

Hubbell’s full offering of UL 2930 HCOA power strips are detailed in the brochure and may be purchased at any Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems authorized distributor.
