Created by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), IEC 61010-1 is an international standard that specifies safety requirements for electrical end-equipment used for measurement, control, and laboratory use. Manufacturers in industries such as test and measurement, industrial process control, agriculture, laboratory use, and material preparation and analysis have to certify equipment to this standard in their respective markets. Semiconductor component manufacturers, such as TI, help make the end-equipment maker’s life easier by complying with this standard’s applicable isolation safety requirements.
