  4. 4. What Is Underwriters Laboratory and What Is  Their Purpose? • Began in 1894 in Delaware • Began as Not for profit laboratory Began as Not for profit laboratory • Examination and testing of devices, systems, and  materials to determine their relationship to hazards  of life and property Translation: Set standards that try to protect us  from Electrocution and Fire hazards from Electrocution and Fire hazards
  5. 5. Electrocution Hazards • SELV circuits 72 Vdc max • Galvanic Isolation • Creepage and Clearance
  6. 6. Fire Hazards • UL 94 Standard • Spread or extinguish the flame Spread or extinguish the flame • Ignition resistance of a plastic
  7. 7. How Does UL Work? k • A material, product, or system is submitted for  testing to meet some standard. • Typically submitted by manufacturers, developers or  yp y y , p authorized agents. • A detailed material list, samples, construction  breakdown, and intended use are required. breakdown and intended use are required • Process can take 4 weeks to 16 weeks and cost  several thousand dollars
  8. 8. UL Certification Levels • UL Listed and follow‐up service • UL Recognized • UL Classified
  9. 9. The Role of Renco Pertaining to UL  h l f and Our Customers • Design and manufacture using materials that  are UL recognized are UL recognized • Design and manufacture to meet a specific UL  system listing. system listing. • Submitting magnetics to UL on behalf of  custo e customer
