  • Leakage Current
rdfs:comment
  • In electronics, leakage current is the unintended loss of electrical current or electrons in devices or components (e.g. capacitor). According to NFPA 99 (2005 version), the medical defines "leakage current as any current, including capacitively coupled current, not intended to be applied to a patient, that is conveyed from exposed conductive parts of an appliance to ground or to other accessible parts of an appliance". Also, adding an additional ground wire (a redundant ground) in parallel with the power cord safety ground is not considered a significant modification to a medical device.

Currently, this term has been replaced with "Touch Current"
