I am designing an in-house measurement and control system and we have decided to use a Traco AC/ DC converter. We are taking UK mains 240V AC and converting it to 12V for use in powering a number of measurement devices and an industrial PC.
I am using the TXM 035-112 AC/DC converter which means the AC must be wired to the AC/DC converter rather than using a kettle lead, (UK Mains plug to C13 IEC Socket). It works fine, there are no problems but I am concerned in case we are not complying with the UK electrical safety standards, (e.g. Do we need to earth the control system chassis? Is an MCB required? Do I need to place electrical hazard stickers)
Does anyone know the standards that must be followed when using screw terminal AC/ DC converters? (We have been referred by SteveG & Traco to IEC 60950-1 (£620) which we don't yet have, (why do safety documents cost so much?).
Ideal would be an xyz of what needs to be done according to EU law.
