Appreciating the harsh environments, the high expectances for long productlife time and ease of use for the users is a part of every FRIWO product with medical approvals.
In the latest IEC60601 3rd edition, medical norm, which already has been globally accepted, the biggest change is that the norm now distinguishes between operators and patients and consequently is it the responsibility of the manufacturer of the medical product, to determine the likelihood of the patients to come into contact with the product.
FRIWO medically approved products fulfills even the harshest requirements - and we are ready to document it.
MOP stands for “Means of Protection” and means precautions for the reduction of the risk of an electrical shock. The medical standard separates between patient and operator protection. A means of protection can be achieved by different methods: electrical insulation (via foils, housings or insulated wires), special parts (Y-Caps), protective earthing or by distances which are defined as clearance and creepage distances.
Electronic devices that have no patient contact and are operated by professionals or instructed persons, do not require increased safety requirements. Therefore the device can be designed with two protective measures for operator protection; 2xMOOP. These requirements correspond approximately to the safety requirements for equipment in information technology. Safety distances for patient protection are always higher than for operator protection.
