I want to design a PCB with some points at some KV during certain times, less than 10KV and no more than 30mA of current. After dealing with concepts and getting the main idea about my circuit needs, I was thinking about protection PCB boxes too. The box will limit maximum PCB area. And I would like to reduce the spacing and the distances within the board, to choose the correct box case material, etc.. but I prefer doing it ensuring safety standards, due to it having interface wire connectors being accessed by a user. Ideally, they only must access them before powering on, and after powering off.
So, I would like to know how to know what IEC standards I must to apply to the board design, especially for human safety.
- UL/IEC 60950
- I have seen how some engineers are often referring to IEC 60664 but it deals with low voltage.
- IEC 61010 is also one of the standards commonly mentioned.
- Is it enough following only one of the two standards UL/IEC 60950 or IEC 61010?
- I don't know if they are talking about different electronic tips, but I wonder what happens if this was the case which of them has priority? As e.g. (seeing index): IEC60950 and IEC61010 when talks about safety and protection against hazard chapters.
- Furthermore, I guess I must put human error prevention in my design in case someone is close to the connectors after powering on. Is it?
