IEC 62368-1 Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment - Part 1: Safety requirements

ConsultingOn December 20, 2020 the seasoned harmonized standards IEC 60950-1 and IEC 60065 will lose their presumption of conformity and will be replaced by IEC 62368-1 und EN 62368-1.

Until then it is advised to reassess all relevant products pursuant to IEC 62368-1 to further be able to confirm compliance with RED (Radio Equipment Directive) or LVD (Low Voltage Directive).

Thanks to these changes in standards philosophy away from technology-focused catalogues to a hazard-based approach, it now is easier to equally assess varying products.

For instance, hazards are categorized by type and „size“ of the according energy source:

  • electrical
  • mechanical
  • power
  • radiation
  • thermal

The core area electrical energy source encompasses high-voltage testing, leakage-current measurements, protective conductor measurements for products connected to the public power grid. Especially the isolation coordination as implemented by the manufacturer is put to the test.

Glow Wire TestingFurther, indirectly-involved hazards regarding electrical energy sources find themselves in the converted or available power–read: fire–and contact temperatures at accessible locations. To do this, products are run in their intended and abnormal environments, as products must prove themselves in single-fault conditions. Finally, it may be confirmed whether or not the regulations on reducing a possible ignition are fulfilled or if a fire protection enclosure is required.

Besides that, contact temperatures are monitored to ensure thresholds are kept in all cases, where requiring a warning sign or a corresponding protection is not intended.

AS/NZS 62368.1:2018 Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment Part 1: Safety requirements This Standard is an adoption with national modifications and has been reproduced from IEC 62368-1, Ed.2.0 (2014), Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment - Part 1: Safety requirements, and its Corrigendum 1 (2015), which has been added at the end of the source text. Corrigendum 2 (2015) applies to the French text edition only and has not been included. The Australian/New Zealand variations are listed in Appendix ZZ. This Standard has been varied from the IC Standard as indicated to take account of Australian/New Zealand conditions. Variations made to IC 62368-1:2014 (ED.2.0) form the Australian/New Zealand variations for the purposes of the CB scheme for recognition of testing to standards for safety of electrical equipment. They are listed in Appendix ZZ. Superseding AS/NZS 60950.1:2015 and AS/NZS 60065:2018 on 15 February 2022
