    Consumer products typically contain a large number of discrete electrical and electronic components. The failure modes of these components are usually benign. However, in some cases, these failure modes can pose a safety hazard. An understanding of a component's failure modes and mechanisms is desirable to design a product that is both safe and reliable. Two case studies are presented here: an ele... View full abstract»

    The basis for applying safeguard requirements to Information Technology Equipment (ITE) containing liquids is the requirement in sub-clause 4.3.10 of I EC 60950-1. It provide very general guidelines and do not completely specify the required safeguards and safeguard requirements. We need to look into other standards which address equipment that use pressurized and non-pressurized liquid containmen... View full abstract»

    The classic approach of testing and certification in independent third party laboratories and certification bodies is still an important means to document compliance with requirements from standards, laws or directives. The majority of small and medium size companies will continue to choose this route as they only have the choice either to build up and maintain own laboratory capacity and competen...

  • Safety Concerns on Ground Fault Application Transfer Phenomenon in HV Installations

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):1 - 6

    When a fault to ground occurs in HV/MV substations supplied by a combined overhead-cable line, most of the fault current can be transferred and injected into the soil several kilometers far away from the fault location. This phenomenon is called "fault application transfer" and mostly concerns transition stations, where cables are connected to the overhead line. If the transition station is a dead...

    Computer modeling may be used to accurately model an IEEE Std C62.41.2-2002 Combination Wave surge generator and apply the simulated surge waveform to a modeled system to determine the system's immunity to surge voltages. During the simulated surge tests, the designer can verify the suitability of the selected components, and, if necessary, judiciously perform a re-design at low cost and with litt...

    Impulses inside the period of the heart require special attention because of the identified inability of the heart to withstand as severe a shock if it does not have time to cycle and recover. This effect is cumulative and fall quickly to 10% or less of the initial value. View full abstract»

    The advent of customer requirements for module level electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing has an impact on the successful achievement of application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design and qualification. This paper will describe the applicability of the following EMC test standards to a SOC (system on a chip) device: ISO 11452, SAE J1113, AEC Q100, SAE J1752/3 and Ford ES-XW7T-1A278-A...

    Europe requires safety certification to EN 61010 for equipment such as laboratory, test & measurement equipment. Section 11.6 calls out protection against hazards from liquids (and dust) by testing the product enclosure to IEC 60529, the dust test. This work describes the evaluation of the dust test chamber as detailed in IEC 60529, figure-2 and the subsequent design of an improved dust test c... View full abstract»
