International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 61676:2002
Title Medical electrical equipment - Dosimetric instruments used for non-invasive measurement of X-ray tube voltage in diagnostic radiology
Project Number 14230
Abstract/Scope Specifies the performance requirements of instruments as used in the non-invasive measurement of X-ray tube voltage up to 150 kV and the relevant compliance tests. Describes the method for calibration and gives guidance for estimating the uncertainty in measurements performed under conditions different from those during calibration. This standard is not concerned with the safety aspect of such instruments. The requirements for electrical safety applying to them are contained in EN 61010-1.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
