This part of IEC 62087 specifies the determination of the power consumption of computer monitors including, but is not limited to, those with CRT, LCD, PDP or OLED technologies. Computer monitors that include touch screen functionality are included in the scope of this document. This document is limited to computer monitors that are powered from a main power source other than a battery. Computer monitors that are powered from a battery source are not covered by this document. However mains-powered computer monitors may include any number of auxiliary batteries. Computer monitors connected by digital inputs such as DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, or by analogue VGA input, are considered in this document. This document does not apply to network- and wirelessly connected computer monitors. A computer monitor is a display device that does not include a TV tuner and is intended to be used to display the video signals from a computer. These video signals are produced from software programs that are operating within the computer and can consist of static and moving images. As such, test procedures using static patterns, dynamic video and web-based video are specified. The test methods specified in this document can be applied to computer monitors of any size, however, this document is not applicable to specialized monitors associated with medical equipment, publishing and other professional, commercial or industrial uses. The various modes of operation that are relevant for measuring power consumption are also defined. The measuring conditions in this document represent the normal use of the equipment and can differ from specific conditions, for example as specified in safety standards.

This part of IEC 60268 applies to analogue amplifiers, and the analogue parts of
analogue/digital amplifiers, which form part of a sound system for professional or household
applications. It specifies the characteristics that should be included in specifications of
amplifiers and the corresponding methods of measurement.
NOTE The methods of measurement for digital amplifiers and similar equipment are given in IEC 61606 [1] 1.
In general, the specified methods of measurement are those which are seen to be most
directly related to the characteristics. This does not exclude the use of other methods that
give equivalent results.
In general, the methods are based on the simplest measuring equipment which can provide
useful results. This does not exclude the use of more complex equipment that can give higher
accuracy and/or allow automatic measurement and recording of results.
Rated conditions and standard measuring conditions are specified in order to allow
measurements to be reliably repeated.

IEC/TR 61292-4:2014(E) which is a technical report, applies to all commercially available optical amplifiers (OAs), including optical fibre amplifiers (OFAs) using active fibres, as well as Raman amplifiers. Semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) using semiconductor gain media are also included. This technical report provides a simple informative guideline on the threshold of high optical power that causes high-temperature damage of fibre. Also discussed is optical safety for manufacturers and users of optical amplifiers by reiterating substantial parts of existing standards and agreements on eye and skin safety. It is important to point out that the reader should always refer to the latest international standards and agreements because the technologies concerned are rapidly evolving. The present technical report will be frequently reviewed and will be updated by incorporating the results of various studies related to OAs and OA-supported optical systems in a timely manner. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 2010, and constitutes a technical revision with updates reflecting new research in the subject area.
