The Schurter Smart Connector DT31 with cloud connectivity offers an efficient solution for managing inventory and monitoring various electrical devices in a health care environment. The standalone "plug and play" Smart Connector is simply inserted between any device with a standard IEC power inlet (IEC 60320 C14) and its power source. In addition to basic functions, like switching on and off and power consumption monitoring, the Smart Connector and the Schurter Smart App enable additional functions that can be programmed according to the customer's needs for resource management. By capturing and analyzing the utilization and usage behavior of medical devices, bottlenecks can be identified, operating costs can be reduced, maintenance intervals can be optimized, and resource utilization can be improved.
