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 provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

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.

International Standard IEC 61558-2-16 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 96:

Transformers, reactors, power supply units and similar products for low voltage up to 1 100 V.

This first edition of IEC 61558-2-16 cancels and replaces IEC 61558-2-17, published in 1997. It

constitutes a technical revision.

This part has the status of a group safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104 (1997):

The preparation of safety publications and the use of basic safety publications and group

safety publications.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

This Part 2-16 is intended to be used in conjunction with the latest edition of IEC 61558-1 and

its amendments. It is based on the second edition (2005) of that standard.

This part supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 61558-1, so as to convert

that publication into the IEC standard: Particular requirements and tests for switch mode power

supply units and transformers for switch mode power supply units.

A list of all parts of the IEC 61558 series can be found on the IEC website under the title:

Safety of transformers, reactors, power supply units and similar products for supply voltages up

to 1 100 V.

Future standards in this series will carry the new general title as cited above. Titles of existing

standards in this series will be updated at the time of the next edition.

Where a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this part, that subclause applies as

far as is reasonable. Where this part states "addition", "modification" or "replacement", the

relevant text of Part 1 is to be adapted accordingly.
In this part, the following print types are used:
– requirements proper: in roman type;
– test specifications: in italic type;
– explanatory matter: in smaller roman type.
In the text of this part, the words in bold are defined in Clause 3.

Subclauses, notes, figures and tables additional to those in Part 1 are numbered starting from

101; supplementary annexes are entitled AA, BB, etc.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until the

maintenance result 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
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

NOTE The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing

organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in

which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or

revised tests.

It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for implementation

nationally not earlier than 12 months from the date of publication.

SAFETY OF TRANSFORMERS, REACTORS, POWER SUPPLY UNITS
AND SIMILAR PRODUCTS FOR SUPPLY VOLTAGES UP TO 1 100 V –
Part 2-16: Particular requirements and tests for switch mode power supply
units and transformers for switch mode power supply units
1 Scope
Replacement:

This part of IEC 61558 deals with the safety of switch mode power supply units and

transformers for switch mode power supply units. Transformers incorporating electronic

circuits are also covered by this standard.
NOTE 1 Safety includes electrical, thermal and mechanical aspects.
This part applies to:

a) switch mode power supply units incorporating safety isolating transformers providing

SELV, PELV or FELV a.c. or d.c. output voltage(s), or a combination thereof according to

IEC 61140 and IEC 60364-4-41 for use with household and other consumer products,

except for products covered by IEC 60065, IEC 61347 series, IEC 61204-7 and IEC 60950-

b) switch mode power supply units with a maximum output voltage not exceeding 1 000 V

a.c. or 1 414 V ripple-free d.c. for use with household and other consumer products, except

for products covered in a) and products covered by IEC 60065, IEC 61347 series,
IEC 61204-7 and IEC 60950-1;

c) this standard may be used for transformers for use in switch mode power supply units

(see Annex BB).
This part covers the safety requirements for:
• separating SMPS for general use corresponding to Part 2-1;
• isolating SMPS for general use corresponding to Part 2-4;
• safety isolating SMPS for general use corresponding to Part 2-6;
• auto-SMPS for general use corresponding to Part 2-13.

For SMPS for specific application corresponding to the other Parts 2 of 61558 series, the

necessary requirements of the relevant Parts 2 are applicable. In addition, the requirements

listed in this part apply. Where the two requirements are in conflict, the most severe take

precedence.

NOTE 2 As the maximum rated supply voltage of the internal transformer is 1 000 V, the maximum rated

supply voltage of the switch mode power supply may be lower due to type of rectification.

Switch mode power supply units covered by this standard are air cooled (natural or forced)

independent, associated, stationary, portable, single-phase, or polyphase, with the rated

supply voltage not exceeding 1 100 V a.c., the rated supply frequency not exceeding

500 Hz, the rated internal operating frequency exceeding 500 Hz, but not exceeding

100 MHz, and the rated output not exceeding 1 kVA or 1 kW, incorporating dry-type

transformers with encapsulated or non-encapsulated windings.
---------------------- Page: 12 ----------------------
SIST EN 61558-2-16:2010
61558-2-16 © IEC:2009 – 7 –

Associated transformers for switch mode power supply units covered by Annex BB of this

standard shall have a rated output not exceeding:
– 25 kVA for single-phase transformers;
– 40 kVA for polyphase transformers.

NOTE 3 For higher frequencies, additional requirements may be necessary. However, this standard may be used

as a guide.

The no-load output voltage or the rated output voltage of switch mode power supply

units shall not exceed:
– 1 000 V a.c. or 1 415 V ripple-free d.c. when separating transformers or auto-
transformers are used;
– 500 V a.c. or 708 V ripple-free d.c. when isolating transformers are used;

– 50 V a.c. or 120 V ripple-free d.c. when safety isolating transformers are used.

The no-load output voltage or the rated output voltage of independent switch mode

power supply units shall not be less than:

– 50 V a.c. or 120 V ripple-free d.c. when separating transformers or autotransformers are

used.

This standard is also applicable to switch mode power supply units, converters and inverters

without limitation of the rated output. However, such switch mode power supply units are

for special applications and are subject to an agreement between the purchaser and the

manufacturer.

NOTE 4 In the context of this standard, converters and invertors are considered to be switch mode power supply

units.

This standard may also be used as a guide for products not covered by the scope of this

standard, the scope of IEC 61204-7, or the scope of IEC 61347 series.
This standard does not apply to:
– motor-generator sets;
– uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) according to IEC 62040;

– switch mode power supply units covered by IEC 61204-7 (i.e., low-voltage power supply
