Regulatory

Compliance

This display has been tested and certified to international medical safety standards IEC/EN 60601-1 and IEC/EN 60601-1-2, and is certified to meet C22.2 No. 601.1-M1990 (C US Mark).

Because many medical offices are located in residential areas, the medical display, in addition to meeting medical requirements, has also been tested and found to comply with the limits for Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Class B computing devices in a typically configured system. It is the system integrator or configurer’s responsibility to test and ensure that the entire system complies with applicable electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) laws.

Planar Systems, Inc. has made great efforts to support the medical device industry, in particular, medical device manufacturers and medical device system integrators. We offer state-of-the-art color displays that are compliant with worldwide accepted medical device safety standards, and for the European market, CE-marked displays based on compliance with counsel directive 93/42/EEC commonly referred to as the Medical Device Directive (MDD). The following summarizes our qualification of these displays as it relates to compliance with the MDD.

The European Medical Device Directive requires that the intended use of the device be defined. The intended use of these displays is “to display alphanumeric, graphic, and image data as inputted from any type of medical device.” These displays do not provide a measurement function in any way, and it is the device and systems manufacturer’s responsibility to verify its function in the integrated device or system.

The display was classified as required by the MDD according to Annex IX of the directive and the medical device (MEDDEV) guidance available at the time of classification. Because the display uses electrical energy and has no direct patient connections and—by itself—no medical utility, the display is classified according to Rule 12 as an MDD Class I device-component or accessory. The MDD states that manufacturers of Class I medical devices or accessories shall satisfy the requirements in regard to design and manufacturing controls, that is, the applicable assessment route to be used for CE-marking under the MDD, and it shall carry the CE mark according to Annex XII of the directive, with no notified body annotation.

The applicable safety standards for an MDD Class I display are IEC/EN 60601-1:1997 along with Amendments 1 and 2. To help the medical device designer evaluate the suitability of these displays, Planar has also conducted EMC testing to IEC 60601-1-2 as it can be applied. The display with its power supply alone does not represent a functional medical device. Hence, Planar configured a minimal operating system to exercise the display. The resulting data are made available to interested parties.

The data are informative data, not certification data. Certification data must be obtained by the device or system integrator according to Article 12 of the MDD titled “Particular procedure for systems and procedure packs.” Paragraph 2 clearly outlines the device or system integrator’s responsibility in this matter.

In summary, Planar Systems, Inc. is CE-marking these displays under the Medical Device Directive, which establishes compliance to the basic medical safety standards. However, EMC compliance can only be accomplished in the configured medical device or system and is the responsibility of the device or system manufacturer. Planar has the necessary documentation such as IEC 60601-1 notified body and other third-party test reports and certifications, a risk/hazard analysis, an essential requirements checklist, and the Planar International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) declaration of conformity.

v

Planar Systems, Inc., located in Beaverton, Oregon, USA, is the manufacturer of these displays in the meaning of the directive. As required by the MDD in Article 14, Planar Systems, Inc., not residing in the European Economic Area (EEA), has a European representative, Planar Systems, Inc.—Espoo, Finland.

In the opinion of Planar Systems, Inc. registration required to put this device into commerce is the responsibility of the medical device/system manufacturer, and Planar supports this requirement by providing a European commission (EC) declaration of conformity. If Planar supplies a display to an end user, rather than a device manufacturer, it is the end user’s responsibility to ensure continued compliance with the MDD of the system in which the display is integrated.

For vigilance reporting as required under Article 10 of the MDD, Planar Systems, Inc. will provide any information requested by competent authority to support any reported incident investigation by such an authority.

European Union Declaration of Conformity for Medical Applications

A Declaration of Conformity has been filed for this product. For additional copies of the Declaration of Conformity document, contact Planar Systems, Inc. and request document number 001-0014-07 “Declaration of Conformity.”

About the VitalScreen S

The architecture of the VitalScreenS display incorporates an AMLCD panel that produces a clear display with low radiation emission. This technology greatly reduces the radiation-related health concerns associated with CRT monitors.

More significant, the VitalScreen S display is medically certified under UL 2601 and IEC 60601. These qualifications make the display safer for the patient and protect the hospital from liability.

Your new VitalScreen S display is versatile, ergonomic, and userfriendly. It supports Plug and Play and displays most standards from 640 x 480 VGA to 1024 x 768 XGA. The digital controls located on the front panel allow you to easily adjust the display parameters using onscreen menus. When incorporated into a complete workstation, the display can be wall-mounted for added convenience.

Selecting a Workspace

Before you unpack the VitalScreen S display, select a suitable workspace for the display and computer. You need a stable, level, and clean surface near a wall outlet.

Even though this display uses little power, place it in a location that allows sufficient airflow to ensure proper ventilation.

Avoid setting up the display near a window where sunlight often comes in. You will have difficulty seeing the screen with glare reflecting off the display.
