For conformity with the requirements for EMC (Electro Magnetic Compatibility), with the aim to prevent unsafe situations, the EN60601-1-2 standard has been implemented. This standard defines the levels of immunity to electromagnetic interference as well as maximum levels of electromagnetic emissions for medical devices.
Medical devices manufactured by OMRON Healthcare conform to this EN60601-1-2 standard for both immunity and emissions. Reference to the applicable standard can be found in the instruction manual of the product.
Nevertheless, special precautions need to be observed:
The use of accessories and cables other than those specified by OMRON, may result in increased emission or decreased immunity of the device.
The medical devices should not be used adjacent to or stacked with other equipment. In case adjacent or stacked use is necessary, the medical device should be observed to verify normal operation in the configuration in which it will be used.
During use (or measurement), portable RF communications device (including peripherals such as antenna cables and external antennas) should be used no closer than 30 cm (12 inches) to any part of the device, including cables specified by OMRON. Otherwise, degradation of the performance of the device could result.
Refer to further guidance below for individual products regarding the EMC environment in which the device should be used.
