IEC/UL 60950-1 Requirements for Information Technology Equipment

  • Seminar

This newly designed 1-day instructor-led course will review product safety of Information Technology Equipment from the technical design perspective and in the context of accessing global markets with single equipment designs. Your experienced UL instructors will cover the based content of IEC/UL60950-1.

This course covers the use and selection of Power Supplies as UL Recognized Components and their Condition of Acceptability when used within Information Technology Equipment. Construction and Testing requirements for Power Supplies are covered by a separate 1-day instructor-led course named “IEC/UL 60950-1 requirements for Power Supplies”.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this seminar, you should be able to:

  • Determine how UL 60950 relates to IEC 60950 and recognize key National Differences for developing a global product design
  • Understand general requirements and terminology
  • Apply component and material selection and special construction requirements
