UL 600 V - Simplified device design for controlled power electronics drive systems

In device development, UL standards increasingly have to be taken into consideration. This whitepaper provides important information on simplified device design according to UL 600V.

 The leading global organisations for the certification of product safety are Underwriters Laboratories (UL) based in Northbrook, Illinois, and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) based in Ghent. All products must be certified in accordance with the local applicable standards for the market in a given country. This means that IEC standards apply in Europe and large areas of the world, whilst UL standards apply in the USA. There are some substantial differences between the standards, which makes global product approval more difficult. In general, the requirements for UL are stricter than those for the IEC…
