1. Safety Standard IEC60335-1
IEC 60335-1:2010 deals with the safety of electrical appliances for household and similar purposes.
COSEL product is designed based on the safety standard IEC60950-1.
Table1 shows the comparison of requirement between IEC60335-1 and IEC60950-1 in terms of safety.
|#||Safety standard||IEC60950-1||IEC60335-1 200V||IEC60335-1 100V|
|Over voltage category||Ⅱ||Ⅱ||Ⅱ|
|Input - Output||3,000||2.4･U+2400||2,000|
|Input - FG||1,500||1.2･U+950||1,000|
|Output - FG||(500)||-||-|
|Portable class I appliances||-||0.75mA||0.75mA|
|Stationary class I motor-operated appliances||-||3.5mA||3.5mA|
|5||Maximum temperature (Wire)||Type A||Less than 90℃||-||-|
|Type E||Less than 105℃||-||-|
|Type B||Less than 110℃||-||-|
|6||Temperature increasing (Wire)||Type A||-||Less than 65deg||Less than 65deg|
|Type E||-||Less than 80deg||Less than 80deg|
|Type B||-||Less than 85deg||Less than 85deg|
*1:(U) Maximum working voltage
*2:(Basic isolation/Reinforced isolation)
*3:Listed voltage means working voltage.
*4:Listed voltage means working voltage in IEC60950-1, and rated input voltage in IEC60335.
2. IEC60335-1 compliance
Required creepage in IEC60335-1 is more strict than IEC60950-1 in some part.
(2) Temperature of wire
In IEC60950-1, type of wire is categorized by the absolute maximum temperature. In IEC60335-1, type of wire is categorized by the temperature increasing against temperature at 25ºC ambient temperature.
(3) Grounding capacitor
2pcs of Y1 grade grounding capacitors shall be used in series to comply with IEC60335-1. Generally COSEL product has only 1pc of Y1 grade grounding capacitor.
(4) Safety approval
The creepage and temperature of wire are different depending on the product.
Generally COSEL product is approved based on IEC60950-1, and it shall be required the
critical components management and other additional items in order to acquire IEC60335-1.
