    One of the significant challenges for the certifications engineer is keeping abreast of the ever changing regulations around the world. The certifications engineer needs to be aware of upcoming regulatory changes well before they occur. Failure to adequately track such changes can prevent products from being accepted in their intended markets of sale or use. Unanticipated regulatory changes can re... View full abstract»

    Lithium ion batteries pave the way for today's plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles. However, these batteries contain the potential of thermal runaway, posing a higher safety risk from thermal incidences than NiMH batteries. Thermal runaway can be mitigated using electronic control systems, which are intended to maintain a safe state of the battery under all operating conditions. When safety depen... View full abstract»

  • Cutaneous burn at an elevated ambient air temperature

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):1 - 5
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1083 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The risk of cutaneous burn is usually assessed by comparing the temperatures measured at external surfaces when the equipment is operated as intended under ambient conditions specified by the manufacturer, with the thresholds established by experimental results in delicate laboratory environments. In the real world ambient air temperature varies with geographical location, the time of the year and... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (917 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a management system for the pursuit of product safety using hazard-based assessment during the product life cycle. A safety level index is initially calculated by hazard levels and safeguards reliability value using FTA diagram. Reliability of components are calculated by using IEC TR 62380. We also discuss an improvement scheme for product safety estimation. The management sys... View full abstract»

    A system has been developed for testing the ignition resistance for polymeric materials to DC high-energy arcing. This paper first introduces the test concept and then statistically evaluates the consistency and repeatability of DC arcing energy applied by test system. Mean, standard deviation, and other statistical parameters of the arc energy are calculated for different test parameters, includi... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces several criteria to consider when choosing a fuse for safety purposes, including phase angle and input impedance. Experiments show that the exact same fuse may display different damage patterns, or lack thereof, when subjected to different phase angles and input impedances at the same voltage level. Therefore, it is of general interest to have fuse selection criteria and test... View full abstract»

    Wireless power transmission is a promising technology which attracts attention in many fields and products. With mobile electronic products being prevalent, such as cellphones and PDAs, removing the power cord becomes a natural progression of achieving the ultimate mobility of the product. Wireless chargers for Electric Vehicles (EVs) would also be a convenient feature, avoiding any need to rememb... View full abstract»

  • Electric shock hazards — Risk assessment and safety management

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):1 - 6
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (576 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Risk assessment typically includes various stages to identify, analyze and evaluate risk, and to reduce risk as needed. For example, the risk of electric shock could be assessed for a product. But to achieve an acceptable level of safety, and then to maintain that level, and even assess opportunities for improvement, it could be very useful to incorporate this risk assessment into a more complete ...

    This paper proposes the concept of an operational zone, gaps, where normal over-current safeties may not trip unless specifically addressed by design. The analysis concept justarose out of an investigation into a consumer product failure that resulted in a multimillion dollar fire loss. A simple and intuitive means was required to explain and present the failure concept to lawyers, judge, and jury... View full abstract»

    Grounding facilitates the reduction in the electrical noise from electronic enclosures, improving the operational quality of circuits contained within the enclosures, and satisfying both the Product Safety (PS) and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) requirements. An ideal PS ground of an electronic enclosure should be equipotential (near zero) with respect to the reference ground to minimize the ... View full abstract»
