Buenos días,

Espero que puedan ayudarme con una expresión al español: “insulation flown” relacionada con pruebas eléctricas para pinzas bipolares de cirugía. Muchas gracias:

“EN 60 601-2-2, High frequency leakage current

One pin must be connected to all conducting parts, the other pin to a conducive medium which contacts the insulating parts of the active equipment. A detailed description of the test setup, dependent on which kind of active equipment is tested. is defined in standard EN 60601-2-2. It occurs a voltage and current measurement.

Result: The smallest external diameter of the insulation d is 0.07 Inch, the RF-frequency of the test voltage peak 700 kHz, the length of the insulation flown by leakage current is 3.54 inch,”

insulation flue
conducto de aislamiento

Es un error mecanográfico. Me parece que podría ser "flue" que es conducto o tiro.

Reference: flow vs fly

Reference information:
Quizá sea un error; en el contexto de la electricidad me encaja más el verbo "to flow", que es regular (part. "flowed"), que el verbo "to fly" (part. "flown").

La idea era ponerlo en la sección de discusión, pero lo he puesto en referencia por error. Mis disculpas.
