4 Essential ratings and characteristic parameters
4.1 Identification and type
The wearable electrochemical-glucose sensors shall be clearly and durably marked in the order given below:
a) year and week (or month) of manufacture;
b) manufacturer name or trade mark;
c) terminal identification (optional);
d) serial number;
e) factory identification code (optional).
4.2 Limiting values and operating conditions
The manufacturer shall clearly announce the operating conditions and its limitations for the use of the wearable glucose sensor. Table 1 shows a list of specification for operating conditions and its limitation.
4.3 Additional information Some additional information should be given such as operating conditions (e.g. operating temperature, storage temperature, input voltage, equivalent circuit, and power consumption, etc.), handling precautions, physical information (e.g. outline dimension, terminals, etc.), accessories, installation guide, package information, PCB interface and mounting information, and any other relevant information.
5 Test method
5.1 General
5.1.1 General Basically, general test procedures for flexible and stretchable supercapacitor are performed as shown in Figure 2. After the supercapacitor is being mounted on a test fixture, the sample is under flat status/bending status/stretching status according to the different force such as compressive and tensile stress applied by the test machine. Simultaneously, its electrical characteristics are measured by using voltage, current and LCR meters. The readings of output voltage or current on the display of the meters are carefully taken under the bending or stretching motion. The mechanical properties are measured by using stress-applying test machines. Flexible and stretchable supercapacitor can be characterized as shown in Figure 2. The supercapacitor is mounted onto a stress-applying test machine with flat status/bending status/stretching status according to different forces applied by the machine. Simultaneously, its electrical characteristics are measured by using current and voltage meters or equivalent equipment. If the measurements are satisfactory, reliability test for temperature range with thermal cycling and mechanical failure with various bending and stretching motions, is performed for commercially use.
