Testimonials

Presentation is important, the grandeur and opulence and the fresh clear-cut feel of your building is superb. Along with the new facilities it is exactly what we wanted for our testing. We are testing to stringent spec and the automotive connection here is important to us! In the past we have built up a good relationship with 3C through e mails and quite complex negotiations regarding our requirements. I enjoy coming here.

We are very happy with the service and co-operation we get here. It's a two-way thing. Improvements? No improvements to suggest really, we get just what we need.

We found 3C Test on the Internet, we liked the look of the building and your wording on the website was very clear. Your facilities are very good and your engineers helpful, no improvements, I am very pleased with everything.

I would like to thank you for your time yesterday, very much appreciated and I would like to say how impressed I was with your company structure and layout. Look forward to seeing you in the near future with some new products.

We test quite frequently, when a colleague first visited he was very impressed with James going through everything with him, so we always use 3C Test. We are very pleased with the way we have been treated, staff always helpful. You have a really good crowd here, nice friendly atmosphere!

3C Test offers Technical Advice and guidance which we do not get elsewhere. Reliable, good quality testing at a competitive price. The engineers use the accurate data we have acquired in an intelligent way to overcome problems.

Standard EN 60601-1-2 covers EMC requirements for all devices, equipment and systems covered by the Medical Device Directive. Although test techniques and requirements are derived from the basic standards, such as the EN 61000 series, EN 60601-1-2 recognises that due to the varied and specialist nature of medical equipment  test levels should be applied with the products end use in mind.

The ever increasing number of electronic products used in the medical industry has increased the need for awareness of the correct operation of the product within its intended electromagnetic environment. This is of critical importance in that the potential malfunctioning of a product may create not only an inconvenience, but in some cases could result in life threatening situations.

Within the EU, CE marking for medical products is mandatory and applicable directives for achieving this are:

  • The EMC council directive 89/336/EEC, which mandates emissions and immunity standards for all electrical and electronic products
  • The Medical Device Directive (MDD) 93/42/EEC, which covers all instruments used in the diagnosis and treatment of humans.
  • The Active Implant Medical Device Directive (AIMDD) 90/385/EEC, which covers all medical devices that may be implanted into the human body.
  • In-Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Directive 98/79/EEC, which covers instruments and equipment used for examining substances taken from the human body for diagnostic purposes.
