White paper: EN 61010 - New safety standard for industrial power supplies

The expiration of the norm EN 60950-1 in the Official Journal of the European Union on 20 December 2020 is affecting all power supplier manufacturers worldwide. This decision of the EU is causing PULS to take action because there is a great need for information from customers and users.

The Official Journal cites EN 62368-1 as the successor to EN 60950-1. The EN 62368-1 combines the fields of information technology equipment (EN 60950-1) and audio/video equipment (EN 60065) and also introduces a new, hazardous-based safety approach. But this standard is not aimed at industrial applications, however.

PULS – as well as other large power supply manufacturers – sees the alternative applicable standards of the EN 61010 series to having significant advantages in the safety evaluation of power supplies in the industrial sector.

In our latest white paper, you will learn more about the current status of the norms as well as the benefits of the EN 61010.
