4 Sep New safety standards based on IEC are superseding existing standards worldwide. In a move that keeps things simple for product. Even though the adopted European version of the IEC , the EN , has been around since , the date of withdrawal for the EN and EN. IEC merges IEC , the electrical safety standard for audio, video and similar equipment, and IEC , the standard for electrical equipment for.

And did you expect that smoke detector to inform you via your smart phone if it detected any smoke in addition to that loud, annoying beep?
While the standard is different from traditional IEC safety standards in its approach, it provides a number of advantages useful to simplify problems created 62368–1 the merging of different technologies we see in:.
Mechanical Hazards Hazardous moving parts can now be more easily defined by three levels of hazard: Assurance Testing Inspection Certification. This new standard applies to a broad range of high-tech products from consumer electronics to office equipment and offers greater flexibility in product design, making it easier for the introduction of new technology.
This part of IEC iex safeguards for ordinary persons, instructed persons, and skilled persons.
This part of IEC does not apply to power supply systems which are not an integral part of the equipment, such as motor-generator sets, battery backup systems and distribution transformers. Besides the fact that you might not need your smoke detector to start a conversation with you while you are at work, equipping traditional appliances with wireless tech or software has an effect on how product safety is assessed. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in Auditing Consulting Sourcing Training.
Safety standards that include requirements for functional safety such as IEC ANNEX H electronic controls for household use were developed to cater to the need of electronics that increasingly perform safety-related functions, like the lock on your oven door. Thank you for your interest in iecc the latest news and updates from UL. Are You Ready for ?
Hazard Based Safety Engineering & Testing | IEC | UL
MS2 is a mechanical hazard that does not cause injury but may be painful, think iwc pinch points or sharp edges and MS3 is a mechanical hazard that can cause injury, e. The International Electrotechnical Commissionone of the oldest standards-making bodies in the world, convenes Technical Committees TCcomprised of various experts, academics, and government officials.
Examples of equipment within the scope of this standard are given in Annex A. Based on this, the standard then oec what constitutes an acceptable voltage, for instance, and what type of protection is required. Standby energy or phantom load is a little known but pervasive problem in many smart homes.
62368-1 Hazard Based Safety
UL has created a toolkit to help you prepare for a smooth transition from legacy standards andto Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. So, for a smoke detector to work, it needs to be designed and constructed in such a way that it monitors smoke when it rises up against the ceiling without it, for example, catching fire or falling apart.
Products Covered The new standards cover a wide range of high-tech products, including: Even though the software does not seem to add much to 63268-1 basic functionalities of the smoke detector at first glance, it can seriously hinder its operation, because it has become a safety-related application.
It was intended to: The new standard is hazard- and performance 623668-1, which places more emphasis on evaluating a product for safety during the design stage. The scope of the standard excludes functional safety aspects, so where functional safety comes in, other 62386-1 in addition apply. Building the Smart City: In order to smooth the transition between the new standard and the legacy standards, components and subassemblies that comply with IEC or IEC are accepted without further investigation.

What You Need to Know about IEC
During the period until the effective date for IEC the three standards will co-exist. The safety of products goes beyond the physical layer, as mishaps in software performance can cause serious safety risks.
Preview Abstract IEC Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and the Economy December 30, To learn more about this new type of hybrid standard, and how complying with it as early as possible will impact your supply chain, check out our resources: With the incorporation of different technologies, like the software in the smoke detector, products today are not just dependent on their physical components to work, but also on their software.
A door lock on your oven that allows the oven door to open or close based on a temperature sensor inside and where correct functioning is based on programmable electronics, is also a functional safety application. Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 43, people in 1, locations in over countries. Instead of being based on descriptions of requirements, the standard focuses on the risks that may occur and gives manufacturers greater leeway in deciding how to design the protection.
Whether your business is local or global, we can ensure your products meet quality, health, environmental, safety, and social accountability standards for virtually any market around the world. It constitutes a technical revision.
Product safety for these products is moving away from a prescriptive approach to a hazard safety approach with the introduction of Intelligent energy management applications. After considerable study by the Technical Committee, the energy hazard requirement has been removed from IEC
