Re: Should Medical Device SIGNAL INPUT/OUTPUT PART be overloaded?
I think overload test for SIP/SOP makes no sense. Overload test for mains transformer is required in standard. Overload can head up the insulation system in the transformer, therefore, overload test can be used to evaluate the temperature of insulation system (winding, core, tube, vernish etc) according to limits of its own classification (A, E,B, F etc).
SIP/SOP is just the secondary circuit and rarely have isolation to secondary circuit.
hence there is usually no isolating components in the board of SIP/SOP. Overload test for such SIP/SOP is apparently pointless.
