Safety is an important consideration when designing power systems. Engineers are very aware that failure to adequately ensure safety during the design phase means certification will be fraught with problems and stress.

This webinar presents a checklist of things to consider about safety when working on your next power design that addresses:

Selection of X and Y capacitors

Appliance Insulation Classes

Fuses

Creepage and Clearance

Hi-Pot testing

Ensuring isolation

You will also learn how using power components makes it easier to meet safety requirements.
