1 Scope

1.1

This Standard applies to electric supply and communication lines and equipment located entirely outside of buildings and fenced supply stations and buildings, and also where the installations or equipment are inside buildings or sections of buildings where they are employed by a utility of

a) an electric system;

b) a communication system; or

c) a community antenna distribution system

in the exercise of its function as a utility..

1.2

Existing installations meeting the requirements of prior editions of this Standard need not be modified to comply with this edition of the Standard, except as might be required for safety reasons by the authority having jurisdiction.

1.3

This Standard, which forms part of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part III, provides requirements for the construction of overhead systems. It covers electric supply and communication circuits that

a) are installed alone;

b) are in joint-use;

c) are in proximity to each other or other facilities;

d) cross each other or other facilities; and

e) cross railways, highways, navigable waterways, or land that is likely to be traversed by vehicles or pedestrians.

1.4

This Standard presents a choice between deterministic and reliability-based design methods.
Reliability-based design methods are covered by CSA C22.3 No. 60826.

1.5

The requirements contained in this Standard do not constitute complete design and construction specifications, but rather prescribe the minimum design requirements that are most important to the

a) safety of persons;

b) continuity of service; and

c) protection of property.

1.6

Conditions not covered by this Standard are governed by equivalent Standards in common use or by the authority having jurisdiction.

1.7

In some cases in this Standard, specific types of construction are envisaged. This does not preclude the use of other types of construction, provided that the engineering representatives involved can demonstrate the safety and suitability of these alternatives.

1.8

The use of terms such as “where practicable” is not intended to provide an opportunity for not meeting the requirements of this Standard, but indicates the preferred clearance or method. Where an alternative is not specified, the engineering solution that most closely adheres to the preferred method should be used.

1.9

Where the requirements of more than one clause apply, all should be satisfied.

1.10

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

Scope:

This particular standard applies to basic safety and essential performance of cerebral tissue oximeter equipment, that employs light at multiple wavelengths to derive a quantitative measure of oxygen saturation of haemoglobin within the volume of tissue sampled under the probe attached to the head. The cerebral tissue oximeter equipment can be based on continuous light, frequency domain or time domain technologies. This particular standard applies to ME equipment used in a hospital environment as well as when used outside the hospital environment, such as in ambulances and air transport. Additional standards may apply to ME equipment for those environments of use.

NOTE 1 Cerebral tissue oximeters are sometimes referred to as near infrared spectroscopy equipment.

Not included within the scope of this particular standard are:
- invasive tissue or vascular oximeters
- oximeters that require a blood sample from the patient
- devices measuring dissolved oxygen
- ME equipment, or part thereof, that measures path-length-dependent haemoglobin change. The requirements for functional near-infrared spectroscopy equipment are found in ISO 80601-2-71.
- ME equipment, or part thereof, that measures arterial saturation based on pulsatile changes in tissue optical properties (SpO2). The requirements for pulse oximeter equipment are found in ISO 80601-2-61.
- ME equipment, or part thereof, that claims to monitor tissue in other parts of the 162 body other than head.

These requirements also apply to cerebral tissue oximeter equipment, including cerebral tissue oximeter monitors, cerebral tissue oximeter probes and probe cable extenders, which have been reprocessed.

This document is not applicable to cerebral tissue oximeter equipment intended for use in laboratory research applications.

If a clause or subclause is specifically intended to be applicable to ME equipment only, or to ME systems only, the title and content of that clause or subclause will say so. If that is not the case, the clause or subclause applies both to ME equipment and to ME systems, as relevant. Hazards inherent in the intended physiological function of ME equipment or ME systems within the scope of this document are not covered by specific requirements in this document except in 201.11 and in 7.2.13 and 8.4.1 of the general standard.

NOTE 2 See also 4.2 of the general standard. “The general standard” is IEC 60601-1:2005+AMD1:2012, Medical electrical equipment – Part 1: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance.

This document can also be applied to ME equipment and their accessories used for compensation or alleviation of disease, injury or disability.

This document is not applicable to remote or slave (secondary) equipment that displays StO2 178 values that are located outside of the patient environment.

NOTE 3 ME equipment that provides selection between diagnostic and monitoring functions is expected to meet the requirements of the appropriate document when configured for that function.
