Achieving product compliance is hard with evolving technology & converging markets

Multimedia devices are rapidly converging and rapidly adopting new technology that enables better communication and performance. As a result, The line separating Audio/Visual equipment from IT products continues to be blurred.

As new devices and applications have evolved at unprecedented rates, and technologies continued to converge, the safety standards 60950-1 for IT products and 60065 for A/V equipment have undergone numerous modifications, making them more complex and difficult to use. IEC 62368-1 is a technology-neutral and performance-based standard, which was designed with a hazard-based approach to replace the IEC 60950 and IEC 60065 standards.

IEC 62368-1 was designed with a hazard-based approach which emphasizes safety design in the early product development phase and introduces significant technical revisions such as Hazard Based Safety Engineering (HBSE), methods for classifying energy sources, and methods for measuring safeguard effectiveness. It is imperative for everyone involved with product design to fully understand how a hazard-based approach incorporates with new requirements to achieve compliance.
