AAMI TIR45:2012

Guidance on the use of agile practices in the development of medical device software

Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation / 20-Aug-2012 / 74 pages

Over the past several years, AGILE software development has become an accepted method for developing software products. There have been questions from both manufacturers and regulators as to whether (or which) AGILE practices are appropriate for developing medical device software. Enough medical device manufacturers have implemented AGILE practices in their software development so that answers to these questions can be documented. Having clear guidance of which practices have been found to be appropriate will be very useful for all developers of medical device software. This TIR will provide recommendations for complying with international standards and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance documents when using AGILE practices to develop medical device software.

Monosodium Phosphate, Anhydrous

American Water Works Association / 01-Aug-2012 / 24 pages

This standard describes monosodium phosphate, anhydrous and liquid, for use in the treatment of potable water, wastewater, and reclaimed water. The product described is an orthophosphate used as formulated and in blends to inhibit corrosion of water conveyance systems. The product described by this standard is also known as sodium phosphate, monobasic, anhydrous and liquid. Major changes made to the standard in this revision include the following: inclusion of the liquid form of monosodium phosphate; inclusion of a requirement for compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act and other federal regulations (Section 4); and, inclusion of a requirement for tamper-evident packaging (Sec. 6.2.3 and 6.2.4).

CAN/CGSB 3.22-2012

Wide-Cut Type Aviation Turbine Fuel (Grade JET B)

Canadian General Standards Board / 01-Sep-2012 / 13 pages

This standard applies to JET B wide-cut type aviation turbine fuel, consisting of hydrocarbons, and naturally
occurring non-hydrocarbons derived from petroleum, and additives as specified herein. Wide-cut type aviation
fuels are low flash, volatile naphtha and kerosene blends, having a wide boiling range and a low-freezing point.

Note: Volatility is not controlled by flash point but rather by a maximum vapour pressure limit.

Grade JET B fuel is normally used in civil aviation operations in aircraft that have been approved to use this
fuel.

Limitations for Use – Aircraft operators should consult their aircraft manuals for the type of fuel, fuel additives
and other limitations.

The testing and evaluation of a product against this standard may require the use of materials and/or equipment
that could be hazardous. This document does not purport to address all the safety aspects associated with its use.
Anyone using this standard has the responsibility to consult the appropriate authorities and to establish appropriate
health and safety practices in conjunction with any applicable regulatory requirements prior to its use.

IEEE 1680.2-2012

IEEE Approved Draft Standard for Environmental Assessment of Imaging Equipment

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers / 05-Oct-2012 / 71 pages

New IEEE Standard – Active.
This standard establishes a clear and consistent set of environmental performance criteria for the design of imaging equipment products, providing an opportunity to secure market recognition for efforts to reduce the environmental impact of electronic products. This standard is also intended to provide a tool for government, institutional, corporate and consumer purchasers to identify products that demonstrate environmental leadership. The intent is that the standard will be updated and revised on a periodic basis to continue to set a higher performance standard for leadership products.

CSA C22.2 NO. 281.1-12

Standard for safety for personnel protection systems for electric vehicle (EV) supply circuits: General requirements (Tri-national standard, with UL 2231-1 and NMX-J-668/1-ANCE)

Edition: 1st
CSA Group / 01-Sep-2012 / 26 pages

Preface

This is the harmonized ANCE, CSA Group, and UL Standard for Personnel Protection Systems for Electric Vehicle (EV) Supply Circuits: General Requirements. It is the First edition of NMX-J-668/1-ANCE, the First edition of CSA C22.2 No. 281.1, and the Second edition of UL 2231-1. This edition of UL 2231-1 supersedes the previous edition published in 2002.

Scope

1.1 These requirements cover devices and systems intended for use in accordance with Annex A, Ref. No. 1, to reduce the risk of electric shock to the user from accessible parts, in grounded or isolated circuits for charging electric vehicles. These circuits are external to or on board the vehicle. 1.2 The devices and systems covered by these requirements are compatible with the designs of charging systems and vehicles where use is intended and are rated accordingly. To assure compatibility, the charging system, the vehicle, or both, are in accordance with the features contained in 1.3 – 1.5. 1.3 The type of vehicle covered by these requirements, including all accessible conductive parts on the vehicle, has one or more of the following:

  1. Provision for the connection of an equipment grounding conductor during battery charging, unless the vehicle has a system of reinforced or double insulation or all of the circuitry on the vehicle is electrically isolated from the supply circuit,
  2. Provision for the connection of ground-monitoring conductors, where required,
  3. Reinforced insulation, or is double-insulated from the supply circuit, or
  4. No direct connection between current-carrying conductors and the vehicle chassis.

1.4 These requirements cover devices and systems where the grounding path impedance of the charging system to the vehicle is less than or equal to the impedance of the ungrounded conductor or conductors. 1.5 These requirements cover devices and systems where a continuous current less than 70 mA RMS is available from any accessible part of the charging system. 1.6 Devices covered by these requirements are intended to interrupt the electric circuit to the load when:

  1. A fault current to ground exceeds some predetermined value that is less than that required to operate the overcurrent protective device of the supply circuit,
  2. The grounding path becomes open-circuited or becomes an excessively high impedance, or
  3. A path to ground is detected on an isolated (ungrounded) system.

1.7 These devices and systems are intended to be applied on electrical systems or include derived systems that are:

  1. Either end-grounded or centrally grounded when the operating voltage is 150 Vrms or less,
  2. Centrally grounded when the operating voltage is greater than 150 Vrms, or
  3. Isolated (ungrounded).

1.8 Charging circuit-interrupting devices covered by these requirements are investigated for their ability to provide protection based on:

  1. The type of current (60 Hz AC, DC, a combination of AC and DC, or AC at frequencies greater than 60 Hz) present in the circuit to be protected, and
  2. Voltage.

1.9 In Mexico and the US, these requirements do not cover ground-fault circuit-interrupters (GFCIs) intended for use as personnel protection in accordance with the national electrical codes on grounded 120 Vrms or 127 Vrms to ground, 60 Hz circuits. Such devices are covered under Annex A, Ref. No. 2. In Canada, these requirements do not cover ground-fault circuit-interrupters (GFCIs) in accordance with the national electrical code on grounded 120 Vrms or 127 Vrms to ground, 60 Hz circuits. Such devices are covered under Annex A, Ref. No. 2. 1.10 This Standard includes the Scope, Definitions, and Description of Requirements, including the required features of protection systems. The standards in Annex A, Ref. No. 3 contain the Performance and Construction requirements for protective devices that would become a part of a charging system.
