Never the less, I have different views on some matters which are based on spending lost of time in continental Europe, where people also know what is best, based on years of experience.
I'm not and have never intended to suggest that I know best - only what my views are. Only that 62353 introduces some confusion RE: equivalent level of safety, i.e. applicable maximum leakage limits, decision when to apply different tests, etc, etc.
Perhaps, we can drive the forum to suggestions on how to make the IEC 62353 better than it currently is (to this who have their concerns).
Isn't that what the experts on the 62353 panel should be discussing and voting on?
IEC 62353 and IEC 60601 are treated separately in terms of measurements. Following IEC 60601 limits does not impact on the IEC 62353 tests (or did I misread your question?)
So, if I have read your meaning correctly the leakage, e.g. earth and patient leakage measurements obtained and the limits intended to ensure they are acceptable, are not as important as the methods used to measure them?
