In this section you can find information regarding Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) for each electrical OMRON product. With the increased number of electronic devices such as PC’s and mobile (cellular) telephones, medical devices in use may be susceptible to electromagnetic interference from other devices. Electromagnetic interference may result in incorrect operation of the medical device and create a potentially unsafe situation. Medical devices should also not interfere with other devices.
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:
Refer to further guidance for individual products regarding the EMC environment in which the device should be used.
