Postopek identifikacije in interoperabilnosti komunikacij zunanjih napajalnikov, ki se uporabljajo pri prenosnih računalniških napravah (IEC 63002:2016)

Specifikacija za dovajanje moči s standardom IEC 62680-1-3: vmesniki USB za podatkovne in močnostne komponente tipa CTM, specifikacija za kable in priključke tipa C.
Ta mednarodni standard določa normativne zahteve za EPS (zunanji napajalnik) za namene zagotavljanja interoperabilnosti; določa zlasti podatke, posredovane iz zunanjega napajalnika v prenosno računalniško napravo (slika 1). Področje uporabe se ne uporablja za vse vidike zunanjega napajalnika. Ta mednarodni standard ne določa normativnih zahtev za prenosno računalniško napravo, temveč podaje priporočila za delovanje prenosne računalniške naprave, kadar se uporablja z zunanjim napajalnikom v skladu s tem mednarodnim standardom.
Ta mednarodni standard določa podatkovne objekte, ki jih uporablja prenosni računalniški sistem v skladu s standardom IEC 62680-1-2 za razumevanje identitete, zasnove in zmogljivosti ter stanja delovanja zunanjega napajalnika. Ta mednarodni standard se uporablja za zunanje napajalnike z močjo manj kot 100 W za prenosne računalniške naprave, s poudarkom na zagotavljanju moči prenosnim računalnikom, tabličnim računalnikom, pametnim telefonom in drugim povezanim večpredstavnostnim napravam.
Ta mednarodni standard temelji na uveljavljenih mehanskih in električnih specifikacijah ter komunikacijskih protokolih, ki jih določata IEC 62680-1-2 in IEC 62680-1-3. Ta mednarodni standard predlaga metode, ki jih podpira IEC 62680-1-2, za zmanjšanje težav, ki jih povzroča povezava nepreizkušenih kombinacij zunanjih napajalnikov in prenosnih računalniških naprav s ciljem povečati zadovoljstvo potrošnikov.
Poleg tega ta mednarodni standard, kot je podano v dodatku C, določa smernice glede interoperabilnosti za polnjenje, ki podpira uporabo zunanjega napajalnika z uporabo toka prek priključka USB tipa C, kadar funkcionalnost IEC 62680-1-2 ni omogočena. Vidiki glede kaptivnega in odstranljivega kabla so predstavljeni v dodatku B.
Zunanji napajalnik mora izpolnjevati določila ustreznih globalnih standardov in zahteve glede skladnosti s predpisi. Primeri teh standardov so navedeni v dodatku F.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

INTRODUCTION

The objective of this International Standard is to support interoperability of external power

supplies used with the increasing variety of portable computing devices that implement the

IEC 62680-1-2: USB Power Delivery with the IEC 62680-1-3: USB Type-C™ connector

standards. Broad market adoption of this International Standard is expected to make a

significant contribution to the global goals of consumer convenience and re-usability of power

supplies by building on the global market ecosystem of IEC 62680 compliant devices and

facilitating interoperability across different product categories.

IEC 62680-1-2 is expected to enjoy significant adoption in global markets for all kinds of

portable computing devices requiring less than 100 watts including notebook computers,

tablets, smartphones and other related devices. This International Standard enables the

reporting of the identity and power characteristics of external supplies supported by

IEC 62680-1-2 (USB Power Delivery) and specifies additional interoperability guidelines for

external power. The method for identification of a specific external power supply (EPS) will

enable equipment manufacturers to ensure compliant operation of an EPS using IEC 62680-1-

2; and promotes data communication that can be used by the portable computing device to

predict and mitigate interoperability concerns when an unfamiliar or incompatible external

power supply is connected to the device by a user.

This International Standard specifies the minimum technical requirements for interoperability

and includes recommendations for EPS functionality and the portable computing device. The

approach taken by this International Standard, focusing on common charging interoperability,

will allow manufacturers to innovate in aspects such as design, system performance, and

energy efficiency.

This International Standard also provides important information regarding consumer safety,

system reliability as well as relevant global standards and regulatory compliance.

Other international and regional standards, recommendations and regulatory policies for

“universal adapters” or “common product chargers” that reference this International Standard

should take into account open technical and regulatory compliance issues that are associated

with untested or arbitrary combinations of EPS and devices such as those identified in

Annex A. For clarity, this International Standard does not take the approach of specifying

“universal” or “common product adapters” because of these open issues and limitations to

satisfy market requirements. Instead, it focuses on interoperability specifications in order to

support global industry in developing interoperable charging solutions that meet regulatory

compliance and market requirements.

1 Scope

This International Standard defines interoperability guidelines for external power supplies

used with portable computing devices that implement the IEC 62680-1-2: Universal Serial Bus

Power Delivery Specification with the IEC 62680-1-3: Universal Serial Bus Interfaces for data

and power-Common Components- Type-C Type-C Cable and Connector Specification.
This International Standard defines normative requirements for an EPS to ensure

interoperability, in particular it specifies the data communicated from an EPS to a portable

computing device (Figure 1). The scope does not apply to all aspects of an EPS. This

International Standard does not specify normative requirements for the portable computing

device but provides recommendations for the behaviour of a portable computing device when

used with an EPS compliant with this International Standard.

This International Standard specifies the data objects used by a portable computing system

using IEC 62680-1-2 to understand the identity, design and performance characteristics, and

operating status of an external power supply. This International Standard is applicable to

external power supplies under 100 watts for portable computing devices, with a focus on

power delivery application for notebook computers, tablets, smartphones and other related

multimedia devices.

This International Standard relies on established mechanical and electrical specifications, and

communication protocols established by IEC 62680-1-2 and IEC 62680-1-3. This International

Standard proposes methods supported by IEC 62680-1-2 to mitigate problems caused by the

connection of untested combinations of EPS and portable computing devices with the aim of

improving consumer satisfaction.

In addition, as given in Annex C, this International Standard provides interoperability

guidelines for an EPS supporting charging using USB Type-C current when IEC 62680-1-2

functionality is not enabled. Considerations for captive and removable cable are presented in

Annex B.

4 Important characteristics of an external power supply
4.1 General

Untested combinations of an EPS and a portable computing device will benefit from some

reporting of the EPS identity, characteristics and status to the portable computing device. The

portable computing device is recommended to use such information to confirm operation of

the EPS, modify its operation with the EPS, or to reject usage of the EPS. Examples of

common usage cases expected for EPS are given in Annex E, and examples of the
application of the EPS identity and characteristics in Annex D.
4.2 Positive identification of a unique EPS model

The specific model number of the EPS might be recognized by the portable computing device

to allow optimized and compliant operation. The portable computing device can benefit by the

ability to distinguish whether the power supply is generic or known.

The hardware version might affect the quality and performance of the EPS. Some provision

reporting the date of manufacture or a hardware version allows the portable computing device

to identify an EPS whose performance characteristics might vary.

The EPS shall use the USB-IF VID to identify its specific vendor. The EPS should also report

a PID unique to the model of the EPS. Lastly, the OEM may report information that helps

identify hardware version of the model of the EPS or serial number. The contents of the OEM-

4.3.1 General

IEC 62680-1-2 enables identification of the voltage and power capabilities of the power

source and also some key electrical parameters for voltage tolerance. This International

Standard extends the range of the EPS capabilities that are communicated to the portable

computer.
4.3.2 Load current step performance of the EPS

The power consumption of a portable computing device can change dynamically. The ability

of the EPS to regulate its voltage output might be important if the portable computing device

is sensitive to fluctuations in voltage. Transient changes in the system load with a fixed-

voltage EPS will result in changes to the load current from the EPS. The ability of the EPS to

respond to transient changes in power sink load is k
