Overcoming Patient Leakage Current Issues

Posted on 03 May 2018
IEC 60601 is the generally accepted standard for medical electrical and electronic equipment, required for the commercialization of this type of equipment in many countries. To guard against electric shock, the specification defines maximum leakage currents for equipment with an applied part, that is, a part of the equipment that comes into contact with the patient under normal operating conditions.

Power Systems for Patient Connected Equipment
