Commercial low voltage systems can include any device that uses 50 volts of electricity or less and runs on low voltage wires. Some examples of these systems are fire alarms, CCTV, Nurse call systems, and wireless clocks.

Data and Telecom Wiring

  • Computers, Phones, and Printers: All the vital components of your scheduling, billing, EMR and office work function off these devices. Proper networking allows your office to change and adapt to whatever your current needs are.
  • Electrical Outlets: Moving a desk and need a new outlet? Installing new outlets where they are functionally efficient is often needed to rearrange your office space to accommodate new hires or a new piece of equipment. Making that flexibility possible is easy for a professional infrastructure engineer.
  • Data Centers: If your medical practice has a server room, you may be familiar with a jumble of wires, indecipherable cables, and a bank of lights that may or may not be labeled. A data cabinet that is wired and labeled efficiently, however, makes it simple for both internal employees and external contractors to work with your infrastructure and achieve the desired results.
  • Wireless Routers: Every office makes use of tablets, laptops, or phones that need wireless connectivity. Setting up business-class routers will save you headaches in the future and ensure all your devices and employees can connect with ease.

Networking Systems for Low Voltage Equipment

All low voltage systems need efficient networks to function well. These can include cabled or wireless connectivity.

  • Structured Cabling: The standard for any equipment that needs fast response and dependable connectivity, this can be built from copper, fiber, or coaxial cables. This network can connect your security cameras, access controls, nurse call systems, fire alarms, and all else!
  • Wireless Connectivity: If it isn’t feasible to wire in certain places, many low voltage devices can communicate wirelessly via radio frequencies, infrared laser or Bluetooth.

Commercial Low Voltage Systems

  • Fire Protection Systems: From indispensable fire alarms to suppression systems that can dispense dry or wet chemicals, liquid, gas, or foam to put out a fire without water, your fire suppression system can operate on a low voltage system to ensure your office and clinic stays safe and that delicate equipment is not harmed.
  • Security Systems: Access control systems that utilize card readers and biometric scanners are vital in some parts of a health practice. CCTV surveillance systems help keep your premises safe and may safeguard sensitive areas like a pharmacy. These systems can wire into your building’s low voltage infrastructure and create a tight security net for your practice.
  • Sound and Communication Systems: A well-made low voltage network can power your pagers, wireless phones, and intercoms, and keep a nurse call system operating crisply throughout your practice.
