Safety and Performance Tests
You must observe any national regulations on the qualification of the testing personnel and suitable
measuring and testing facilities. See the maintenance section for a list of required tests. Safety and
performance tests, and what to do if the instrument does not meet these specifications, are described
in the Service Guide.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Specifications
Take special precautions regarding electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) when using medical electrical
equipment. You must operate your monitoring equipment according to the EMC information
provided in this book. Portable and mobile radiofrequency (RF) communications equipment can affect
medical electrical equipment.
Accessories Compliant with EMC Standards
All accessories listed in the accessories section comply, in combination with the monitor, with the
requirements of IEC 60601-1-2:2001 + A1:2004.
Using accessories other than those specified may result in increased electromagnetic emission or
decreased electromagnetic immunity of the monitoring equipment.
The monitor is suitable for use in the electromagnetic environment specified in the table below. You
must ensure that it is used in such an environment.
Radiofrequency (RF) emissions
RF emissions CISPR 11
(% volume fraction)
Avoiding Electromagnetic Interference
The monitor uses RF energy only for its internal function. Therefore, its RF
emissions are very low and are not likely to cause any interference in nearby
The monitor is suitable for use in all establishments other than those directly
connected to the public low-voltage power supply network that supplies
buildings used for domestic purposes.
