IEC62471 Standards Assure Operator Safety and Ability to Sell Worldwide

LED light manufacturers know that governments require their lights to be tested to guarantee that UV and IR light output does not exceed specific safety levels. Unfortunately, many are unaware that today in Europe, Canada, and parts of Asia, LED lights are required to be tested and documented to the IEC62471 standard. SVL's Andy Reed explains the need that led to the development of the IEC62471 "Photobiological Safety of Lamps and Lamp Systems" standard in this article in Vision Systems Design. Discussed are the standard requirements, LED classifications, exposure times, risks, test equipment, and much more. For additional information on the standard and SVL's documentation, click hereTo learn more about Smart Vision Lights' LED testing lab, click here.
