    A common trend in electrical safety testing over the last several years is more stringent production line testing. Generally, only dielectric withstand and continuity tests are run as 100% routine production line testing. Equipment manufacturers have shifted away from these tests in favor of additional testing. The reason is manufacturers are performing risk analysis on product assembly procedures... View full abstract»

    The FDA recommends that medical device manufacturers take steps to assure that appropriate safeguards are in place to reduce the risk of failure due to cyberattack, which could be initiated by the introduction of malware into the medical equipment. However, including safeguards into legacy devices in the field is not easy. One approach is to make software changes that are then distributed into the... View full abstract»

    China's medical device market is continuously growing since the last decade and increasingly attractive for foreign medical device manufacturers. However, marketing products in China as a foreign manufacturer is challenging due to the rapidly changing regulatory environment and lack of available information and documents published in English. This work addresses the recent introduction of the Chin... View full abstract»

    This paper is an overview of the Australia/New Zealand (ANZ) Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM) for electrical and electronic products. It covers the Australian regulatory environment, the scope of the mark, its history, its applications and rules today, and issues around implementation. This paper will mainly focus on Australia's perspective, with a little discussion of New Zealand as necessary to ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1027 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Experiments described in this paper show corona initiated between a transformer windings using a hi-pot tester set to AC voltage output, detected with both a spectrum analyzer and a small magnetic loop and with an audio microphone. To the power transmission industry, corona is a cause of power loss and is an interference nuisance for control and communication electronics. It is understood that die... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (298 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper examines the frequency response of human body-simulating impedance networks found in information and communication technology safety standards, then explores their reactions at radio frequencies used for wireless telephony. It explores the possible existence of human-body inductance, resonance and skin effect. Finally, it postulates a working model for evaluating the safety of high-powe... View full abstract»

    Every year many consumer products such as TV sets and white goods are reported to have caught fire. In 2012, the Tokyo fire department reported that about 17% of household fires originate from consumer products. Although these figures are much better than in the past, they are still unsatisfactory. Why do consumer products become hazardous despite passing stringent testing? One of the reasons is t... View full abstract»

    Since its introduction in 2011, the ISO 26262 standard has provided the state-of-the-art methodology for achieving functional safety of automotive electrical and electronic systems. Among other requirements, the standard requires estimation of quantified metrics such as the Probabilistic Metric for Hardware Failure (PMHF) using quantitative failure analysis techniques. While the standard provides ... View full abstract»

    Paper outlines the issues with compliance model numbering. The paper illustrates the benefits of choosing a Numbering strategy that allows for variations in hardware without the need to choose a model number for each variation. The paper goes on to detail the information that will benefit the manufacturer in developing compliance reports that cover a range of configurations. Additionally I provide... View full abstract»
