PPO-Elektroniikka Oy was founded in 1981 as a designer and manufacturer of professional electronics. Our aim was to develop a system to improve electrical safety in the operating rooms. The first insulation monitoring device MEV-3 was launched at the beginning of 1983. Our MEV-3 revealed a big problem in hospitals; there were much more devices with electrical current leakages than had been expected. Therefore, the authorities decided in 1983 that this kind of equipment is mandatory in Finnish operating rooms.
MEV® Insulation Monitoring System
Our MEV-insulation monitoring system has saved lives and protected valuable equipment in Finnish hospitals over
39 years. The leakage of electrical current is a real danger to the staff and patients; it can cause a fatal electric shock
without any visible signs. No operation will be performed in Finnish operating rooms if insulation monitoring is not in use.
Our MEV-system is also suitable for other critical environments such as explosive sensitive EX-rooms, ammunition factories,
chemical laboratories, mining, production and service areas.
We have delivered more than 30 000 insulation monitoring devices since the establishment of our company in 1981.
All operating rooms in Finland use MEV-7 or its earlier generations. Our fifth-generation MEV-8 has been in production
since the beginning of the year 2019. MEV-8 has been developed in cooperation with hospital engineers.
The new EU Directive now requires the insulation monitoring system in all hospitals in Europe. Our MEV-system meets
all international regulatory acts and technical standards.
With our solutions, our aim is to improve safety and reduce and prevent damages. In addition to MEV, we have
- Fire safety
- Wireless data & Control
- Positioning and tracking
