UKCA(UK Conformity Assessed) After the Brexit transition period ends, from January 1, 2021, there is a new safety approvals for switching power supplies and medical adapters/open frames in UK market, when importing to the UK market must comply with the requirements of UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed). UKCA covers most of the current EU CE regulations. The UK market includes England, Wales and Scotland, but excluding Northern Ireland. The UKCA mark is only applicable to the UK which cannot be applied to the European Union, European Economic Area or Northern Ireland market. *UKCA requirements*Under the following conditions, the product shall be with “UKCA” logo from January 1, 2021.• Products sold in the UK• Products within the scope of British law• Must pass a third-party qualification assessment• Those who originally used the UK Notified Body and hasn’t transfer the conformity assessment file to the EU Notified Body before January 1, 2021The above requirements don’t include the existing inventory entered the UK market before January 1, 2021, regardless of whether the verification is carried out by a UK institution. UKCA, but starting from January 1, 2022, all products need to use the UKCA logo. North Ireland products (unrestricted) CE or CE+UKNI *UK Conformity Assessed, UKCA UK Conformity Assessment* • UKCA (British Conformity Assessment) is a new British product conformity mark, used to show that the product complies with relevant British standards and regulatory requirements.• From January 1, 2021, products sold to the UK market (England, Wales and Scotland, but excluding Northern Ireland) must meet relevant UK standards and regulations before they can use the UKCA mark. The testing standards and verification process are basically the same as the current CE requirements.• The UKCA mark is only applicable to the UK and cannot be applied to the European Union, European Economic Area or Northern Ireland market. Astek Power Supplies and Medical Adapter and Open Frames meet with UKCA approvals.

Leakage current on Switching Power Supplies

In order to make people power on power supply units safely, one of the critical factors is leakage currents. When the current overflows through the insulation resistance, it is called Leakage current. When the leakage current is contacted by the human body, the current flows through the human body and then flows to Earth, causing electrical damage. The difference between the leakage current test and the withstand voltage test and the ground protection test is that the device is tested under operating conditions. A human body analog impedance circuit is added to the leakage current test to simulate the leakage current through the human body under real conditions.

The leakage current standard categorized into Class I, Class II and Class III by the types of Insulation, which derived from the IEC system. Now, we list as below:

* CLASS I means that the product's protection against electric shock not only depends on basic insulation, but also includes grounding. Its leakage current limits Max.0.75 mA for the handheld and 3.5mA for the other equipment.

* CLASS II means that the product's protection against electric shock not only relies on basic insulation, but also includes additional safety measures such as double insulation or reinforced insulation, but without grounding or protection depending on the installation conditions. The Max. leakage current is 0.25 mA.

* CLASS III means that the product's protection against electric shock depends on the power supply voltage as the safety extra low voltage (SELV), and no dangerous voltage is generated therein.

Astek Power Supplies pass the tests of leakage current and relative green power regulations because we care about the safety and environments. Any inquiries, please touch us asap.
