Draft Scope/Description:


This part of IEC 80601 applies to the basic safety and essential performance of screening thermographs intended to be used for the individual non-invasive febrile temperature screening of a human under controlled environmental conditions, hereafter referred to as ME EQUIPMENT. This document sets laboratory characterization test limits for the screening thermograph.

NOTE 101 A screening thermograph is intended for screening of a human subject and detection of skin temperature elevated above normal. An elevated skin temperature needs to be followed up by a subsequent temperature measurement using a clinical thermometer (see ISO 80601-2-56 [30]).

NOTE 102 The main part of such equipment is commonly referred to as an infrared camera.

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.
