Transformer Requirements - IEC 60601-1 vs. IEC 61558-2-15

Dear community,

I am struggling with the following situation: 60601-1, cl. 15.5 has detailed requirements regarding isolating transformers. If a manufacturer decides to use a 61558-2-15 (transformers for supply of medical locations) compliant transformer, will this be OK in all cases? Does 61558-2-15 have requirements regarding patient safety (MOPP), or operator safety only?

It would be great if anybody could give some detailed information on the differences between the requirements of both standards, especially:
- Temperatures
- Short-circuit and overload
- Dielectric strength
- Creepages and clearances

Thanks in advance,
Benjamin
