CUI upgrades external power supply line to meet IEC 62368-1 standard

CUI’s Power Group has upgraded the majority of its external ac-dc power supplies to the new IEC 62368-1 standard for ICT and AV equipment.

Set to supersede the outgoing IEC 60950-1 and IEC 60065 standards on December 20, 2020, IEC 62368-1 will introduce fundamentally different guidelines based on hazard-based safety engineering principles. This means that IEC 62368-1 is more significant than a simple merger of the two standards and represents an important transition for designers of ICT and AV equipment.

Similar to the past standards, IEC 62368-1 will apply not only to the end system, but also to components such as external power supplies. CUI’s newly compliant line ranges from 3W-250W in wall plug-in, multi blade, and desktop versions, all available with a variety of DC output plug options. The models also meet the latest global efficiency standards, including US DoE Level VI and the EU’s voluntary CoC Tier 2 requirements.
