This article written by CUI’s VP of Marketing Jeff Schnabel, and published in Electronic Products, explains what IEC 60601-1 3rd edition is and how it will affect the way power is implemented in a device.
The article begins, “On August 5, 2013, the U.S. FDA announced the extension of the transition date for IEC 60601-1 3rd edition from June 30, 2013 to December 31, 2013. This means the FDA will accept pre-market submissions with test reports assessed to IEC 60601-1 2nd edition through the end of the year.
The US was set to join the EU and Canada on July 1st in implementing these standards, which better protect the patient and operator, but it looks like some device designers aren't yet ready for this. So, here we examine 60601-1 3rd edition and how will it affect the way you implement power in your device.
