Today we’re going to talk more about UL 60950, the standard for information technology equipment.

We are going to talk about the standards and designs and how to accelerate your design and obtain rapid approval.

In this video presentation Steve gives the outline of the standard with the scope… and this time he shows you more about how you would find that standard and look at it and get information to be sure that this is the right standard for your product.  This is a very practical and hands on post today and it is best to follow along as you watch the video.
