The Dewert MCL III controller is a compact, space-optimised controller for up to four drives. Thanks to the flat and particularly space-saving design, the controller is ideally suited for space-critical applications, i.e. for attachment on a low nursing bed and low floor bed. These types of nursing and hospital beds that can be lowered very low are a big trend on the bed market. This solution has the decisive advantage of minimising the risk of injury to patients due to falling from the bed. Thanks to the appropriately compact design of the MCL III controller, low nursing beds can reach particularly low drop down heights while simultaneous preserving the flexibility with regard to design and functionality.
The Dewert MCL III controller has an external power supply that provides several decisive advantages for low nursing beds. On the one hand, this has made it possible for the height of the controller housing to be extremely compact. On the other hand, it contributes considerably to safety by providing effective protection to persons against an electric shock. By separating the controller from the power supply, only the output side with extra-low voltage of less than 30 volts is located directly under the bed. Moreover, the critical and dangerous mains voltage is located outside the bed in the regulator directly next to a power outlet. This prevents a dangerous electric shock in the bed. The Dewert MCL III is first error safe in accordance with medical requirements and contains integrated short circuit and overload protection for safe use in a low nursing bed.
