Audio Visual Equipment Tests

What is IEC 62368-1?

The 62368-1 standard is the new unified Audio / Video (A / V) and Internet Technology Equipment (ITE) standard. It will replace the 60065 and 60950-1 standards and introduce a new Hazard-Based Safety Engineering methodology to avoid risks / hazards associated with product design. With the new 62368-1 standard, manufacturers will be asked to rethink how they approach hazard reduction through assurances at multiple product development, construction and end-use levels.

Hazards are defined in three categories of energy sources that require different levels of protection to adapt. According to the new Hazard Based Safety Engineering process, these hazards must be reduced to an acceptable risk level for a product to comply with the new 62368 standard.

With new, technology-independent methods, manufacturers can reduce hazards without the "prescriptive" process found in 60065 and 60950-1. This means that manufacturers can design simpler products to achieve product safety compliance and reduce costs associated with manufacturing, design, and the entire product lifecycle.

If I am compatible with 60065/60950, do I still need testing for 62368?

It is important for manufacturers to know that 62368 is not parallel to 60065 and 60950. Products that currently conform to the old standards cannot be assumed to conform to 62368. These products will require a thorough review of design elements and components to provide.
