Here at Ideal Power, we understand the importance of power supply for medical applications. In order to achieve the safety of medical electronics, IEC/UL/EN 60601-1 prescribes three categories for electronic medical devices and medical power supplies, known as applied parts classification.

You can be assured that all our products comply with the medical application standards ISO 13485 and ISO 14971.

We deal with class 2 medical power supply, external medical power supply, and medical grade ATX power supply. In doing so, we focus on providing power supplies for medical applications that are optimised for the best industry-lead performance. We ensure that all products meet global safety standards and also deliver products at a competitive price.

MEDICAL POWER SUPPLY UNITS AND PARTS CLASSIFICATIONS

Any piece of electronic medical equipment that interacts with a patient is called an applied part. These applied parts are classified under one of the following categories: ‘Type B’, body type, ‘Type BF’, body floating type, ‘Type CF’, and cardiac floating type. Each type has varying input to output isolation voltages, input to ground isolations, and output to ground isolations. Similarly, there is variation in the earth leakage current, enclosure leakage current, and patient leakage current. 

Each applied part is manufactured for a designated purpose and such a vital sector means that they need to be accurately selected and used.

Applied Part Classification Input to Output Isolation Voltage Input to Ground Isolation Output to ground Isolation End product examples
Type B PSU 4000V AC 1500V AC 500V AC These are grounded devices that work within 6 feet of the patient vicinity and do not require electrical contact; examples include lighting, hospital beds, automated medication dispensers and X-ray machines or scanners.
Type BF PSU 4000V AC 1500V AC 1500V AC These devices have conductive contact with the patient; examples include incubators, blood pressure monitors and electrosurgical devices.
Type CF PSU 4000V AC 1500V AC 1500V AC This is the most stringent classification and refers to devices that heart; examples include intracardiac ECG electrodes, defibrillators, or external pacemakers.

CHANGES TO EMC TESTING

EMC testing now has more complex risk assessments and new immunity test levels. This is due to modern technological advances that can ensure greater safety. 

If you require further assistance in selecting the correct power supply, for medical purposes or otherwise, please contact us.

MEANS OF PROTECTION

Means of Protection (MOP) is a classification that is put in place to protect patients and operators alike from electric shocks. This is an essential consideration when selecting the right power supply for medical purposes as safety is at the forefront of your execution. There are separate classifications when it comes to MOP, these include Means of Patient Protection (MOPP) and Means of Operator Protection (MOOP).

Classification Required Isolation Required Creepage Required Insulation
MOOP 1500V AC 2.5mm
2 x MOOP 3000V AC 5mm Reinforced
MOPP 1500V AC 8mm
2 x MOPP 4000V AC 8mm Reinforced

INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is the commission that’s responsible for establishing and publishing the ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC) requirements. These requirements take multiple environments and electrical devices into account to ensure complete safety.

Furthermore, they risk assess electromagnetic disturbances and the effects of such that are caused by other electronic devices within the intended environment. As well as varying environments, differing uses are considered, categorising devices using their intended medical purpose (intended use) and their standby, transport, and maintenance (normal use).
