In the interests of helping to guarantee safer practice and the repeatability of test measurements, IEC defines different types of leakage current tests—one for total equipment leakage and another for applied parts leakage currents. Otherwise conformity to applicable requirements should be assessed and verified, before the tests of this standard are performed.
The test methods are:. Measurements can also be influenced by the presence of magnetic fields—the principle of measuring differential current—and measurements must be done in both directions to identify the worst-case scenario. The aim of this booklet is to help the reader to: However, higher test currents—of 10A or more—might potentially be destructive to parts of the device under test, which are connected to the protective ground but have a functional purpose, such as screening.
IEC Leakage Testing Research has shown that it is current rather than voltage that is the source of electricity-related injuries and deaths. Ensure that the operator of safety test equipment is properly trained on both the safety analyzer and the device under test to prevent unneccessary danger during the safety test. The direct leakage method included in IEC is the same as that in IECmeasuring the true leakage through a body model measuring device to ground.
To meet this need, many different standards have been published to describe what iiec considered safe for the patients and operators of ME equipment. So, there is an increased need for test equipment that allows the user to automate data capture and ensure validity of test results for better management 623353 risk. This standard is also applicable to tests after repair. Although visual inspection is not clearly defined in IECits inclusion is a fundamental requirement of all routine test and maintenance procedures.
Earth Bond Testing Earth bond test considerations and precision vs accuracy are discussed in this section. Figures 4 and 5 provide a schematic representation of the applied part leakage test on Class I grounded ME equipment.
Please provide your name and email to continue. Introduction to IEC The alternative method is similar to a dielectric strength test at mains potential, using a current limited voltage source at mains frequency.
Stay aware of moving parts, open conductors, live components, heat, etc. Record Keeping This section covers gathering and comparison of data collected, including what information should be included in the data logged. You can find a comprehensive overview of Insulation Resistance Test covering: In recent months, the U.
Higher test currents of 25A or 10A have been traditionally favored, based largely on IEC requirements. Recently, new test technology has been pioneered in the form of a new low-energy, high-current test that overcomes the previous contact-resistance problems that inhibited the wider application of protective ground testing using 1A or iev test currents.
Acceptance testing, also referred to as initial or reference testing. For more information, contact. This standard does not define requirements for repair, exchange of components and modification of ME equipment or ME systems. Provide an understanding of the benefits of using the different tests available, in order to help them prepare the adoption of the IEC standard.
The direct method does therefore require a fully isolated device under test and must be performed on a terre neutral supply and in each polarity of the incoming mains supply to guarantee measurements are taken at the maximum potential leakage current.
Routine testing, also referred to as PPM, preventive product maintenance.
Ensure high accuracy and repeatability of leakage measurement readings. Leakage measurements achieved using the alternative method are highly repeatable and provide a good indication of deterioration in the dielectrics of 6233 medical device under test. In many cases, more rigorous electrical safety testing is needed after the replacement of components or reconfiguration of medical devices.

As a ief standard, the current IEC does not provide any guidance to standardizing test requirements once an item of ME equipment has passed the design phase. For this reason, the alternative leakage method ifc only relevant for certain types of EM devices. In-Service Test Requirements As a type-testing standard, the current IEC does not provide any guidance to standardizing test requirements once an item of ME equipment has passed the design phase. IEC Ground Bond Test The ground bond test proves the integrity of the 6235 connection between the ground conductor and any metal conductive parts, which may become live in fault situations with Class I medical devices.
The differential test method measures the leakage current as a result of imbalance in current between the live and neutral conductors. This section covers gathering and comparison of data collected, including what information should be included in the data logged.
This test is carried out before a new medical device is authorized for use, and is undertaken to ensure ied and complete delivery. The highest test reading will determine the pass or fail result of this test in comparison with different test limits included in IEC for different types of equipment.
FDA has issued draft guidance regarding medical device cybersecurity, as well as a cybersecurity playbook. Research has shown that it is current rather than voltage that is the source of electricity-related injuries and deaths. The main advantage of using the differential leakage method is that the ground conductor remains intact during the measurement, thus providing safer working conditions.
These are called leakage currents. Importantly, the new standard recognizes that the laboratory conditions described in IEC cannot always be guaranteed when in-service testing of medical devices is undertaken. When determining the correct means of testing a specific iev device, ensure that the chosen safety test procedures are applicable to the device under test and are clearly documented for future use.
