What are Hospital Grade Power Cables?

Hospital-grade power cords are not your typical power cables. These extension cables are specialized to work at their best when lives are on the line, used in applications that demand a strong, reliable performance and long-lasting durability. This means that these specialized cords must be manufactured specifically for hospitals using the highest quality materials available. 

One term you might encounter when browsing hospital grade power cables and extension cords is "green dot" cables, used in reference to the green dot found on 5-15 plug connectors. It's essential that these cables are purchased from reliable retailers with a reputation for consistent quality, which makes a great place to start.

The green dot on these cables must be earned - it means that the cord itself must feature stronger pins and larger plug bodies in order to eliminate the risk of shock and withstand greater than usual pull forces, and it must meet UL 817 and CAN/CAS C22 standards. These specialized power cords and cables are often costly and difficult to source, but you can find them at at competitive prices.
