Masimo’s new MX-5 OEM circuit board utilizes approximately half the power of previously available rainbow circuit boards to deliver rainbow Pulse CO-Oximetry noninvasive measurement performance.

The MX-5 is also unique in that it can dynamically scale power consumption even further depending on the type of parameters being measured.

Until now, enabling the powerful noninvasive measurement capabilities of rainbow Pulse CO-Oximetry required 550 milliwatts of power on average. The reduced power consumption of the new MX-5 circuit board varies between 250 and 320 milliwatts of power on average, depending on the rainbow parameters being measured.

This approximately 50% reduction in power consumption is expected to facilitate integration into next-generation patient monitoring solutions that require a more efficient power profile to enable smaller, lighter, and more mobile battery-operated devices.
