Oprema za informacijsko tehnologijo - Varnost - 1. del: Splošne zahteve - Dopolnilo A2 (IEC 60950-1:2005/A2:2013, spremenjen)

Ta standard velja za opremo za informacijsko tehnologijo z omrežnim napajanjem ali baterijskim napajanjem, vključno z električno poslovno opremo in z njo povezano opremo z OCENJEVALNO NAPETOSTJO, ki ne presega 600 V. Ta standard prav tako velja za takšne vrste opreme za informacijsko tehnologijo: - načrtovano za uporabo v telekomunikacijski opremi terminalov in opremi za telekomunikacijsko omrežno infrastrukturo, ne glede na vir napajanja; - načrtovano in namenjeno za neposredno povezavo ali uporabljeno kot infrastrukturno opremo v RAZDELITVENEM SISTEMU KABLOV, ne glede na vir napajanja; - načrtovano tako, da uporablja IZMENIČNO OMREŽNO NAPAJANJE kot medij za prenos informacij (glej klavzulo 6, opomba 4 in 7.1, opomba 4).   Ta standard prav tako velja za sestavne dele in podsklope, namenjene vključitvi v opremo za informacijsko tehnologijo. Ne pričakuje se, da so takšni sestavni deli in podsklopi v skladu z vsakim vidikom standarda, pod pogojem, da je celotna oprema za informacijsko tehnologijo, ki vsebuje takšne sestavne dele in podsklope, skladna.

connection to protective earth or if surge suppressors are connected between the

network terminals and accessible parts, have a marking stating that the equipment must

be connected to an earthed mains socket-outlet.
The marking text in the applicable countries shall be as follows:

In Denmark: “Apparatets stikprop skal tilsluttes en stikkontakt med jord, som giver

forbindelse til stikproppens jord.”
In Finland: "Laite on liitettävä suojakoskettimilla varustettuun pistorasiaan"

Full information on the voting for the approval of this amendment can be found in the report

on voting indicated in the above table.

The committee has decided that the contents of this amendment and the base publication will

remain unchanged until the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under

"http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to the specific publication. At this date, the

publication will be

• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.
____________
0.1 General principles of safety

Replace, in the existing second paragraph, the words "technologies and materials" by

"technologies, components and materials".
Add, between the existing second and third paragraphs, the following new note:

NOTE The need for additional detailed requirements to cope with a new situation should be brought promptly to

the attention of the appropriate committee.
1.1.1 Equipment covered by this standard
Replace the existing third paragraph by the following new paragraph:
This part of IEC 60950 is also applicable to:

– components and subassemblies intended for incorporation in this equipment. Such

components and subassemblies need not comply with every requirement of the standard,

provided that the complete equipment, incorporating such components and
subassemblies, does comply;

– external power supply units intended to supply other equipment within the scope of this

part of IEC 60950;

– accessories intended to be used with equipment within the scope of this part of

IEC 60950.

Replace, in the existing NOTE 1, the words "components and subassemblies" by "components,

subassemblies and accessories".

1.1.3 Exclusions

Replace in the existing first dash "and transformers;" by "and distribution transformers;"

1.2.1.1
RATED VOLTAGE
Replace the existing definition by the following new definition:

supply voltage from which the equipment is to be operated as declared by the manufacturer

1.5.1 General
Replace the existing text and notes of this subclause by the following new text:

Where safety is involved, components shall comply with the requirements of this standard or,

where specified in a requirements clause, with the safety aspects of the relevant IEC

component standards.

NOTE An IEC component standard is considered relevant only if the component in question clearly falls within its

scope.

Components and subassemblies that comply with IEC 62368-1 are acceptable as part of an

equipment covered by this standard without further evaluation other than to give consideration

to the appropriate use of the component or subassembly in the end-product.
1.5.2 Evaluation and testing of components
Replace the existing text and note of this subclause by the following new text:

Where use of an IEC component standard is permitted above, evaluation and testing of

components shall be conducted as follows:

– a component shall be checked for correct application and use in accordance with its

rating;

– a component that has been demonstrated to comply with a standard harmonized with the

relevant IEC component standard shall be subjected to the applicable tests of this

standard, as part of the equipment, with the exception of those tests that are part of the

relevant IEC component standard;

– a component that has not been demonstrated to comply with a relevant standard as above

shall be subjected to the applicable tests of this standard, as part of the equipment, and to

the applicable tests of the component standard, under the conditions occurring in the

equipment;

NOTE The applicable test for compliance with a component standard is, in general, conducted separately.

– where components are used in circuits not in accordance with their specified ratings, the

components shall be tested under the conditions occurring in the equipment. The number

of samples required for test is, in general, the same as required by an equivalent

standard.
Compliance is checked by inspection and by the relevant data or tests.
1.5.6 Capacitors bridging insulation
Replace the existing second dash of this subclause by the following new dash:
– Humidity: (93 ± 3) % relative humidity;

Replace the existing Rule 2 of Table 1C modified by Amendment 1 by the following:

2 For a single capacitor bridging FUNCTIONAL INSULATION, BASIC INSULATION, SUPPLEMENTARY INSULATION or

REINFORCED INSULATION, the voltage rating of the single capacitor shall be at least equal to the RMS WORKING

VOLTAGE across the insulation being bridged, determined according to 2.10.2.2.

Replace the existing Rule 3 of Table 1C modified by Amendment 1 by the following:

3 For a single capacitor bridging FUNCTIONAL INSULATION, BASIC INSULATION or SUPPLEMENTARY INSULATION,

– the TYPE TEST impulse test voltage of the single capacitor shall be not less than the peak value of the test

voltage (not the r.m.s. voltage) of Table 5B for BASIC INSULATION, or the peak value of the test voltage of

Table 5C for BASIC INSULATION, as applicable;

– the TYPE TEST r.m.s. voltages of the single capacitor shall be not less than the required r.m.s. test voltage

of Table 5B for BASIC INSULATION, or the equivalent r.m.s. test voltage (not the peak voltage) of Table 5C

for BASIC INSULATION, as applicable.

Replace the existing Rule 4 of Table 1C modified by Amendment 1 by the following:

4 For a single capacitor bridging DOUBLE INSULATION or REINFORCED INSULATION,

– the TYPE TEST impulse voltage of the single capacitor shall be not less than the peak value of the test

voltage (not the r.m.s. voltage) of Table 5B for REINFORCED INSULATION, or the peak value of the test

voltage of Table 5C for REINFORCED INSULATION, as applicable;

– the TYPE TEST r.m.s. voltage of the single capacitors shall be not less than the required r.m.s. test voltage

of Table 5B for REINFORCED INSULATION, or the equivalent r.m.s. test voltage (not the peak voltage) of

Table 5C for REINFORCED INSULATION, as applicable;

Replace the existing Rule 7 of Table 1C modified by Amendment 1 by the following:

7 If two or more capacitors are used in series, all of the following apply:

– under single fault conditions, the voltage on each of the remaining individual capacitors shall not exceed

the voltage rating of the relevant individual capacitor;

– for BASIC INSULATION or SUPPLEMENTARY INSULATION, the sum of the TYPE TEST peak impulse test voltages

of all capacitors shall be not less than the peak value of the test voltage (not the r.m.s. voltage) of Table

5B, or the peak value of the test voltage of Table 5C, as applicable;

– for BASIC INSULATION or SUPPLEMENTARY INSULATION, the sum of the TYPE TEST r.m.s. test voltages of all

capacitors shall be not less than the required r.m.s. test voltage of Table 5B, or the equivalent r.m.s. test
