New Safety Standard IEC/EN/UL62368-1 3.0 on Switching Mode  Power Supplies

  Concerning switching power supplies, the date of withdrawal (DoW) for the outgoing standards IEC 60950-1 and IEC 60065 is December 20, 2020. IEC62368-1 is not regarded as an “merge” IEC60950 and IEC60065 because a new “hazard-based” standard would cover both electronic equipment and IT/Communications technology.

  IEC62368-1:2018 3rd edition will replace IEC62368-1:2014 from Dec. 20 of 2020, which was published in Oct. of 2018. IEC 62368-1:2018 is applicable to the safety of electrical and electronic equipment within the field of audio, video, information and communication technology, and business and office machines with a rated voltage not exceeding 600 V (includes equipment rated 400/690V).

  From now on, manufacturers of power supplies shall consider to comply with IEC62368-1:2018 3rd edition when procuring components and subsystems. IEC62368-1 is basically a product safety standard that classifies energy sources, prescribes safeguards against those energy sources, and provides guidance on the application of, and requirements for, those safeguards intended to reduce the possibilities of pain, injury and if fire, property damage.

  Not only Euro and CB (Certification Body) members, in North America (USA and Canada), estimated and adopting of UL/CSA62368-1 Ed. 3.0 on Dec. 20, 2020. The other countries follow IEC/EN62368-1 respectively.

  Astek Global develops and leads our switching power supplies into IEC62368-1 Ed.3.0. If you are interested in, please advise us info@astekglobe.com. Thank you.
