To better secure patient safety, become familiar with the details of the "Monitor and
Measurement Server Specifications" chapter of the Instructions for Use.
Patient Leakage Current
The patient leakage current is less than 10µA at 230V/50Hz. The equipment has floating
inputs (Type CF) that are protected against the effects of defibrillation and electrosurgery.
IEC 60601-1/EN60601-1/CSAC22.2 601.1/UL 2601-1), and is defibrillator proof.
Preparing to Install the Monitor
To avoid contaminating or infecting personnel, the service environment or other

appropriately disinfected and decontaminated.
Power Source Requirements
See Electrical Specifications in the Specifications chapter of the Instructions for Use.
Protecting against Electric Shock
The M3046A Monitor is classified as Class I Equipment with an internal power source
according to IEC 60601-1/EN 60601-1/CSAC22.2 601.1/UL 2601-1, which means that it is
an instrument included in the protective grounding (protective earth) system of the room by
way of grounding contacts in the power plug.
To protect the patient and hospital personnel, when operating from an AC source, the cabinet
of the Monitor must be grounded. The Monitor is equipped with a detachable 3-wire cable
which grounds the Instrument to the power line ground (protective earth) when plugged into
an appropriate 3-wire receptacle.
