IEC 60601-1 Clause 15.3.2, Push test

#1
The clause for push test calls for ENCLOSURE to be subjected to a steady force of 250 N ± 10 N for a period of 5 s.

We have an plastic enclosure and a Li-ion battery powered device. It is classified as Portable, hand held & body worn.
That amount of force (250N) will destroy the enclosure, (not an unacceptable risk for us) but if Li ion battery is subjected to that force, it can damage severely and possibly combust.


the push test is not a representative of any scenario that can likely occur during the service life.

Are there any exceptions for this test? or conditions where this test should not be conducted near Lithium-ion batteries.?
