These requirements cover indoor-use cord-and-plug-connec
HCOAs are intended to supply cord-and-plug-connec
a) Standard for Medical Electrical Equipment, Part 1: General Requirements, UL 60601-1;
b) Medical electrical equipment - Part 1: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance, IEC 60601-1; and
c) Medical Electrical Equipment - Part 1-2: General Requirements for basic safety and essential performance - Collateral standard: Electromagnetic disturbances - Requirements and tests, ANSI/AAMI 60601-1-2.
These requirements cover HCOA consisting of an ANSI/NEMA WD 6-configuration Hospital Grade attachment plug and a length of non-detachable flexible cord terminated in an enclosure in which are mounted ANSI/NEMA WD 6-configuration Hospital Grade individual receptacle outlets (duplex or single) which are connected conductively to an integral patient equipment grounding terminal or jack provided for user connection of a discrete patient equipment grounding conductor to Patient Equipment Grounding Points, installed in the Patient Care Vicinities of a Health Care Facility.
An HCOA is not intended for Home Health Care Use.
These requirements do not cover cord-connected, Relocatable Power Taps (RPT) intended only for indoor use as a temporary extension of a grounding alternating-current branch circuit for general use, covered by the Standard for Relocatable Power Taps, UL 1363. RPT are not suitable for use in Category 2 (General Patient Care) Spaces or Category 1 (Critical Patient Care) Spaces or Patient Care Vicinities.
These requirements do not cover cord-connected, Special Purpose Relocatable Power Taps (SPRPT); covered by the Outline of Investigation for Special Purpose Relocatable Power Taps, UL 1363A. SPRPT are power distribution components intended to supply power to plug-connected components of a movable equipment assemblies that are rack, table, or pedestal-mounted. SPRPT are intended for use as components of complete equipment submitted for investigation rather than for direct separate installation in the field. The SPRPT shall be an integral part of the equipment assembly and permanently attached to the equipment assembly only by those qualified to assemble medical electrical equipment systems compliant with Medical electrical equipment - Part 1: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance, IEC 60601-1. SPRPT are not suitable for use in Patient Care Vicinities.
These requirements do not cover cord-connected, Furniture Power Distribution Units (FPDU), intended for indoor use that provide power for and are intended to be installed in furnishings. FPDU are covered by the Standard for Furniture Power Distribution Units, UL 962A
