In the era of rapid changes in digital technology, the safety standards of audio and video products (AV) and information technology equipment (ITE) products are constantly updated and developed. The safety requirements of these products have been replaced by passive safety regulations (IEC/EN 60065 & IEC/EN 60950-1) in the past, and gradually replaced by the safety standard IEC/EN 62368-1:2014 (Second Edition), which actively prevents potential hazards. . In addition, the international standard EC 62368-1:2018 and the EU standard EN 62368-1:2020 (both are referred to as the third edition) have also been launched on the market one after another, causing many manufacturers to find it difficult to choose between the second and third editions. I want to wait. After the third edition is confirmed, we will update the product.
However, as of April 2020, although the EU EM62368-1:2020 standard will be announced on _2021-01-26, the EU Directive 2014/35/EU has not yet included EN62368-1:2020 in the latest standard. Audio and video products are exported to Europe. We recommend using EN 62368-1:2014 (Second Edition) first to catch up with the standard update deadline before the end of 2020 and grasp the market access opportunities.
In addition, the United States and Canada have fully adopted [L 62368-1 as the national standard, and the L 62368-1 standard is expected to completely replace the current u60950-1 and TL60065.
Which products does 62368-1 apply to?
The new standard is widely applicable to a variety of high-tech products: electrical and electronic equipment, audio and video products, information technology products, business automation equipment not exceeding 600v, power supply products, servers, monitors, TVs, laptops, personal Computers and computer peripheral products, etc.
Can I accept IEC 60950-1 fIEc 60065 certified parts?
Yes, according to IEC 62368-1:2014 and IEC62368-1:2018.
The main differences between the 2014 edition of IEC62368-1 and the 2018 edition
01 For products with commonly used communication cables, such as USB or Ethernet (PoE) for DC power supply equipment, additional requirements must comply with IEC 62368-3.
02Add new requirements for switches and relays located in PS3 circuits or used as protection devices.
03 Bridge capacitor, a 2-capacitor can be used under conditions.
04 Requirements for fire-resistant enclosures and fire-resistant barriers: a deletion of the description of the old version of the mandatory convection diagram 39
05 Touch the temperature limit and protection device, and add wearable devices with a temperature limit of 43～48°c.
06 Requirements for wireless power transmitters, new requirements and tests for wireless power transmitters have been added.
07Ic including the capacitor discharge function (ICX), modify the test method of the Ic including the capacitor discharge function (ICX).
