Determination of Test Cycles of Dynamic Forces (IEC 60601)


Hi cove,
There is no definition of test cycle of dynamic forces stated in clause of IEC 60601-1:2012. Well, how to determin the test cycle ? which may be effect the test result of the product.

I find IEC 60601-2-52 (medical bed) clause do well. It specified the test cycle is 10000times. But the device is not a medical bed.

So, how to deal with this situation in IEC 60601-1:2012???:deadhorse:
Can i use the life time of the device to decide the test cycle??

Everyone has good point?
I appreciated your joining :applause:


If the number of cycles is not specified in the standard, than the test only needs to be performed one time unless your risk management process dictates otherwise.
