Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment - Part 1: Safety requirements (IEC 62368-1:2014, modified)

This Amendment of EN 62368-1:2014 contains the deletion of clause 4.1.1 with the intension to delete the allowance to use the legacy standards for components. The references to EN 60950-1 and EN 60065 in clause 4.1.1 are problematic as these standards will be withdrawn after December 2020

1 Modification to Clause 2 Normative references
Add the following normative reference:

EN 50332-3:2017, Sound system equipment: headphones and earphones associated with

personal music players - Maximum sound pressure level measurement methodology - Part 3:

Measurement method for sound dose management
2 Modification to Clause 3 Terms, definitions and abbreviations
3.3 Terms and definitions
Add the following new terms and definitions:
3.3.18 Sound exposure
3.3.18.1
momentary exposure level
MEL

metric for estimating 1 s sound exposure level from the HD 483-1 S2 test signal applied to

both channels, based on EN 50332-1:2013, 4.2
Note 1 to entry: MEL is measured as A-weighted levels in dB.
Note 2 to entry: See B.3 of EN 50332-3:2017 for additional information.
3.3.18.2
calculated sound dose
CSD

one week rolling estimate of sound exposure expressed in percent of the maximum regarded

as safe
Note 1 to entry: See B.4 of EN 50332-3:2017 for additional information.
3.3.18.3
sound exposure

A-weighted sound pressure (p) squared and integrated over a stated period of time, T

Note 1 to entry: The SI unit is Pa s.
E = pt() dt
3.3.18.4
sound exposure level
SEL

logarithmic measure of sound exposure relative to a reference value, E , typically the 1 kHz

threshold of hearing in humans
Note 1 to entry: SEL is measured as A-weighted levels in dB.

EN 62368-1:2014/prAD:2018 (E)
3.3.18.5
digital signal level relative to full scale
dBFS

levels reported in dBFS are always r.m.s. Full scale level, 0 dBFS, is the level of a dc-free

997-Hz sine wave whose undithered positive peak value is positive digital full scale, leaving

the code corresponding to negative digital full scale unused

Note 1 to entry: It is invalid to use dBFS for non-r.m.s. levels. Because the definition of full scale is based on a

sine wave, the level of signals with a crest factor lower than that of a sine wave may exceed 0 dBFS. In particular,

square-wave signals may reach +3,01 dBFS.
3 Modification to Clause 10 Radiation
Replace Clause 10.6 with the following:
10.6 Safeguards against acoustic energy sources
10.6.1 General

Safeguard requirements for protection against long-term exposure to excessive sound

pressure levels from personal music players closely coupled to the ear are specified below.

Requirements for earphones and headphones intended for use with personal music players

are also covered.

A personal music player is a portable equipment intended for use by an ordinary person,

that:

– is designed to allow the user to listen to audio or audiovisual content / material; and

– uses a listening device, such as headphones or earphones that can be worn in or on or

around the ears; and

– has a player that can be body worn (of a size suitable to be carried in a clothing pocket)

and is intended for the user to walk around with while in continuous use (for example, on a

street, in a subway, at an airport, etc.).

EXAMPLES Portable CD players, MP3 audio players, mobile phones with MP3 type features, PDAs or similar

equipment.

Personal music players shall comply with the requirements of either 10.6.2 or 10.6.3.

NOTE 1 Protection against acoustic energy sources from telecom applications is referenced to ITU-T P.360.

NOTE 2 It is the intention of the Committee to allow the alternative methods for now, but to only use the dose

measurement method as given in 10.6.5 in future. Therefore, manufacturers are encouraged to implement 10.6.5

as soon as possible.
Listening devices sold separately shall comply with the requirements of 10.6.6.
These requirements are valid for music or video mode only.
The requirements do not apply to:
– professional equipment;

NOTE 3 Professional equipment is equipment sold through special sales channels. All products sold through

normal electronics stores are considered not to be professional equipment.
– hearing aid equipment and other devices for assistive listening;
– the following type of analogue personal music players:

• long distance radio receiver (for example, a multiband radio receiver or world band

radio receiver, an AM radio receiver), and
• cassette player/recorder;

NOTE 4 This exemption has been allowed because this technology is falling out of use and it is expected that

within a few years it will no longer exist. This exemption will not be extended to other technologies.

– a player while connected to an external amplifier that does not allow the user to walk

around while in use.

EN 62368-1:2014/prAD:2018 (E)

For equipment that is clearly designed or intended primarily for use by children, the limits of

the relevant toy standards may apply.

NOTE 5 In Europe, the relevant requirements are given in EN 71-1:2011, 4.20 and the related tests methods and

measurement distances apply.
10.6.2 Classification of devices without the capacity to estimate sound dose
10.6.2.1 General

This standard is transitioning from short-term based (30 s) requirements to long-term based

(40 hour) requirements. These clauses remain in effect only for devices that do not comply

with sound dose estimation as stipulated in EN50332-3.

For classifying the acoustic output L , , measurements are based on the A-weighted

Aeq
equivalent sound pressure level over a 30 s period.

For music where the average sound pressure (long term L , ) measured over the duration

Aeq

of the song is lower than the average produced by the programme simulation noise,

measurements may be done over the duration of the complete song. In this case, T becomes

the duration of the song.

NOTE Classical music, acoustic music and broadcast typically has an average sound pressure (long term L , )

Aeq

which is much lower than the average programme simulation noise. Therefore, if the player is capable to analyse

the content and compare it with the programme simulation noise, the warning does not need to be given as long as

the average sound pressure of the song does not exceed the required limit.

For example, if the player is set with the programme simulation noise to 85 dB, but the average music level of the

song is only 65 dB, there is no need to give a warning or ask an acknowledgement as long as the average sound

level of the song is not above the basic limit of 85 dB.
10.6.2.2 RS1 limits (to be superseded, see 10.6.3.2)
RS1 is a class 1 acoustic energy source that does not exceed the following:

– for equipment provided as a package (player with its listening device), and with a

proprietary connector between the player and its listening device, or where the

combination of player and listening device is known by other means such as setting or

automatic detection, the L , acoustic output shall be ≤ 85 dB when playing the fixed

Aeq
“programme simulation noise” described in EN 50332-1.

– for equipment provided with a standardized connector (for example, a 3,5 phone jack) that

allows connection to a listening device for general use, the unweighted r.m.s. output

voltage shall be ≤ 27 mV (analogue interface) or -25 dBFS (digital interface) when playing

the fixed “programme simulation noise” described in EN 50332-1.
– The RS1 limits will be updated for all devices as per 10.6.3.2.
10.6.2.3 RS2 limits (to be superseded, see 10.6.3.3)
RS2 is a class 2 acoustic energy source that does not exceed the following:

– for equipment provided as a package (player with its listening device), and with a

proprietary connector between the player and its listening device, or when the combination

of player and listening device is known by other means such as setting or automatic

detection, the L , acoustic output shall be ≤ 100 dB(A) when playing the fixed
Aeq
“programme simulation noise” as described in EN 50332-1.
