Designing for Compliance to IEC 61010

Gain insight into the basic safety requirements under IEC 61010 applicable to products in development.

Laboratory sterilization equipment

It is always a good idea to review basic safety requirements applicable to products under development. This helps reduce the chance of overlooking minor technical details that may lead to costly mistakes if the design team needs to make physical changes to the product during the safety approval process.

This recorded webinar provides a technical overview of areas of concern in regards to non-conformities that could delay a product from getting to market on time during product design prototyping stages, and prior to testing and final certification to IEC 61010-1, the Standard for Safety Requirements for Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use. Examples of these types of equipment include PCR thermal cyclers, laboratory freezers, ovens, sterilizers, mixers, spectrometers, centrifuges, multimeters and insulation testers. In addition, In-Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) products fall under the scope of IEC 61010-1 with IEC 61010-2-101 being the specific standard.

Key points:

  • Introduction of IEC 61010-1 Edition 3.1
  • Overview of IEC 61010 series and requirements
  • Challenges IVD manufacturers face in meeting these safety requirements
