CUI: Medical Design Standards for Power Supplies to IEC-60601-1

July 10, 2017 //By CUI
This paper looks at the IEC 60601-1 medical standard and its impact on power supply design. IEC 60601-1 provides general requirements, in a series of standards, that address the basic safety and essential performance requirements of medical electrical equipment. The paper shows how the standard has evolved, to one that establishes new “environments” when considering electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) between medical electrical equipment and other electronic devices.
