Welcome to the latest Excelsys Newsletter!

We are delighted to announce that the Xgen Configurable power supply meets the latest, FDA required IEC60601-1 3rd edition medical standards. Effective from June 30th 2013 the US FDA will no longer accept references to 60601 2nd Edition in any submissions. This new approval is in addition to the existing approval to the 2nd Edition and ensures full medical approval is maintained during the transition period from 2nd to 3rd editions. 

We also feature an application note on the subject of low leakage medical power supplies. This application note, written by Shane Callanan, Director of Applications Engineering, discusses the considerations and trade-off between designing a power supply to meet low leakage requirements while at the same time ensuring compliance with international standards for Electro Magnetic Interference.  

Lastly, Excelsys also announce the signing of a new distribution agreement with IMCA Electronics of Turkey. This addition of IMCA further expands the Excelsys international distributor network and ensures the best local, technical and customer support is available to our customers,

Medical PR Shot
Excelsys Technologies has successfully had its Xgen range of configurable power supplies approved to IEC 60601-1:2005 3rd Edition. This is in addition to the existing approval to the 2nd Edition and ensures full medical approval is maintained during the transition period from 2nd to 3rd editions. Sponsors or manufacturers pursuing FDA for approval of electrical medical devices will need to show compliance to EN60601-1 3rd edition. This is an across-the-board requirement for all aligned and recognized and particular standards.

The updated medical approvals for the Excelsys Xgen family includes ANSI/AAMI EN60601-1:2005, Medical electrical equipment- Part 1, General requirements for basic safety and essential performance, CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60601-1:08.

 

Low Leakage Medical power supplies.
There is a fine line between designing a power supply to meet low leakage requirements while at the same time ensuring compliance with international standards for Electro Magnetic Interference.

This paper discusses the sources and quantifies this leakage current, and also details the impact of balancing this with the need to meet radiated and conducted emissions. It also discusses the limiting factors that your design needs to  meet in order for it to be used in an N+1 redundant system.
