I'm planning on using a Line Isolation Monitor panel in an OR, (Cardiac cath lab actually) The way I read the code these LIMS are required. I'd also like to put both normal and emergency power.
Of course Square D makes a dual LIM panel that probably anticipates this purpose.
Now, I have three CATH labs side by side. Can I install two LIM panels, one emergency one normal, and serve three labs? Or is there some limit for distance of wiring (Impedance is specifically adressed in NFPA 99) or a grounding issue that will prevent me from using two LIMs for three suites? I might have to go 50 feet or more to get from one lab to another.
Each suite is required to have a LIM monitoring panel in plain sight. Do they make remote LIM monitors? Can you put three remote monitors on one LIM, for three suites?
