Radiated emission according to CISPR 11 vs. CISPR 32 (DIN EN 55011 vs. DIN EN 55032)
According to DIN EN 60601-1-2, radiated emissions for industrial, scientific and medical equipment must comply with the requirements of CISPR 11.
However, this is not applicable to multimedia equipment and is specified accordingly. Multimedia equipment is defined as information technology equipment whose main function is to input, store, output, or display, retrieve, transmit, process, switch, monitor data and/or telecommunications messages. Examples include computers (PCs and All-in-one computers), bedside terminals, computer peripheral devices such as monitors, telecommunications equipment, broadcast receivers, televisions, etc.
Point 7.1.3 of the above standard explicitly states that this type of ME equipment, or equipment suitable for connection to ME equipment or ME systems, must comply with the requirements of CISPR 32.
The test of radiated emissions according to CISPR 32 covers a higher frequency range and is therefore to be classified as higher.
CISPR 11 measures the frequency range up to 1 GHz, whereas the test according to CISPR 32 covers the range up to 6 GHz.
In multimedia equipment, the high clock rate of the components used can lead to interference in the frequency range up to 6 GHz, which would not be detected in a test according to CISPR 11. These electromagnetic disturbances can lead to impaired functionality, which can cause malfunctions, especially in devices used in the sensitive area of medical technology.
Therefore, the devices of the CLINIO and OPERION series of Rein Medical GmbH are certified according to the requirements of CISPR 32 and underline the high-quality requirements we set for ourselves and our products.
