The IEC60601-1 3rd edition standard is the harmonized standard for medical electrical equipment that has been adopted globally. In the latest 3rd edition of the standard, Means of Protection (MOP) was introduced and it was further categorized into 2 different classifications, which are Means of Operator Protection (MOOP)and Means of Patient Protection (MOPP)
For equipment used within laboratory environment without contacting patients, power supplies that meet 2 x MOOP standards are normally sufficient. However, for those contacting patients, power supplies meeting with 2 x MOPP standards are compulsory. Taking the market demand into consideration, the insulation resistance level of MSP-1000 series which was launched in this June is now upgraded from MOOP to 2 x MOPP (Means of Patient Protection). Power supplies that meet 2 x MOPP standards provide the highest level of protection. It can be advantageous to specify a 2 x MOPP power supply because it can cover most of medical applications.
The MSP-1000 series will be upgraded to the new version after the production dated 2018/09/26 (production lot: W1810D). MEAN WELL fully takes in any relevant cost, making no adjustment on the pricing. Should there be any questions, please refer to the updated specification on website or contact EVERNET Electronics Co.,Ltd. sales representatives.
The last serial number for the individual MSP-1000 models with MOOP level is as below.
