AD5940 and 60601-1

Category: Hardware
Product Number: AD5940

Hi,

I am working on a bioimpedance application and have been using the AD5940 eval kit.  In one of the application notes, it ahs the following.

I have been looking through the 60601 standard as it relates to this application and I cannot find a reference for where the max allowable ac current as a function of frequency is stated.  Does anybody know where the values in the application note come from.  I admittedly get very easily lost in reading the standard, but the closest thing I could find are the references to Patient Auxiliary Currents, which appear to be limited to 100uA in normal operation and are not frequency dependent.

Any steer in the right directions would be appreciated.

  • Hi Paul,

    We are looking into this.

    The person who worked on this application note has moved to a different group so we need to consult him before getting back with an answer. 

    For now, I just want to highlight that the application boards for AD5940 should be used for evaluation purposes only and should not be connected to a body for measurement. 

    regards,
