Is your ACDC power supply still compliant to safety standards in 2021?


Safety standards are an important consideration in the specification of an AC/DC or DC/DC converter.

Standards continuously evolve and their requirements differ between end applications, sometimes significantly.

IEC/EN 60950-1, along with IEC/EN 60065 are due to be withdrawn completely in December 2020.

An alternative, IEC/EN 62368-1, now applies but there may also be other standards that are more appropriate to the end application.

This paper by Zentralverband Elektrotechnik und Elektronikindustrie e.V. (ZVEI) gives guidance on the selection of the right standard to apply.

Recom has an extended range ACDC converters, compliant, or pending, to the new IEC/EN 62368-1 standard. Overview here below.

Also DCDC converters for certain applications can be affected. Contact us for more info if needed.
