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.

Korea Energy Efficiency System MEPS/E-standby/HECP

In order to popularize and expand energy green and environmentally friendly power supplies, save energy, reduce carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and enable consumers to purchase energy-efficient power supplies first, South Korea has introduced an energy efficiency certification system since the 1990s. Its control agency is KEMCO (Korea Energy Management Corporation), and the testing agencies mainly include KTL and KTC. The power supply needs to comply with KMEPS regulations. According to the adapter and standard, there are three main categories:
1. Energy efficiency rating system MEPS
The power supply is divided into 1 to 5 levels according to energy efficiency and energy usage. The lower limit of energy efficiency is the obligation system applicable to the Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS: Minimum Energy Performance Standard).
The Korean government has introduced a mandatory energy efficiency registration and marking system in 1992, using minimum consumption efficiency standards (MEPS) 1-5 labels to identify adapters. In order to expand the popularization of energy-saving power supplies, the energy consumption rate rating system assumes the following three obligations for domestic manufacturers (domestic) and domestic importers (imports): ① Obligation to affix energy consumption rate rating labels; ② Obligation to declare adapters; ③ Required Meet the minimum consumption rate standards, etc.
2. E-standby with low power consumption system
The South Korean government has also introduced the E-Standby certification system that has been gradually mandatory since 1999.
The standby energy saving warning sign (yellow) shall be affixed to the power supply that does not meet the standard requirements. On the contrary, if it is satisfied, an energy saving sign (smile sign) is added.
3. HECP, a high-efficiency energy equipment system
The Korean government introduced the voluntary High-efficiency Appliance Certification program in 1996, which is a certification system that evaluates the inspection results of energy efficiency and quality tests and requires that they meet certain standards.
