Connections Single phase dedicated circuit with dedicated hot and neutral wires. Wire gauge sufficient to maintain 220–240 VA C w/ 10 amp continuous & 20 amp momentary current.*
*The STERRAD® NX® Sterilizer has a vacuum pump which will cause the sterilizer to draw up to 20 amps of current for 1 to 2 seconds when the pump starts. If the wire gauge is too small, when the vacuum pump starts the line voltage at the outlet will drop to a level which can cause the sterilizer to reboot. Have the electrician use a voltage drop calculator to ensure the line voltage at the outlet does not drop below 198 Volts AC during the 1 to 2 seconds of 20 amps current draw.
Service Requirements In operation, the STERRAD® NX® System should not be placed closer than 25 mm to a wall at the rear. The sterilizer should be installed in a space of sufficient size to permit access to all 4 sides of the system. Service access requires a minimum clearance of 61 cm above the top and 61 cm to the right of the system. The power receptacle should be positioned 30.5 cm to 61 cm above the floor.
