    Will it take effect on consumer power supplies too?

    Yep!

    FSP puts safety first ahead of IEC 62368
    I can't believe they made that a press release. Corsair's been making sure everything is IEC 62368 complaint for about the last five years.

    I think the only Corsair PSUs that are still in production that aren't IEC 62368 compliant are the TX-M Series, RMi Series, HXi Series and AX1200i because they're just so old (more than 5 years on the market).

    After 12/2020, those can't be sold in most markets.

    But by 12/2020, I'm sure all of those series will either be replaced with an updated version or EOL'd altogether.

    Isn’t the current TX-M series only 2-3 years old? I could have sworn they released in 2017 or so.

    Why would you "guess" that? The drop dead date for requiring IEC 62368 is 12/2020. That's fourteen months away.

    Jeremy reviewed an 850W in 2017, but I show it started production mid 2016. So it's not as old as I thought. But I also know it doesn't meet the IEC 62368.

    Ok. I just noticed that the article on KitGuru COMPLETELY NEGLECTS TO TELL THE READER THAT IEC 62368 ISN'T REQUIRED UNTIL DECEMBER 2020.

    People are working on it NOW because they want products to still be on the market WHEN it is required.

    It's also not just about flammability. That's completely wrong. It's about safety. The vent hole test isn't about flames being able to shoot out of 2.5mm holes vs. 3.0mm holes. It's about people sticking things INTO the PSU from the back. Example: PSU mounting holes don't line up to chassis's holes, but customer doesn't realize that and sticks a screw into a vent hole.

    From the article:

    FSP must ensure that a customer’s finger cannot enter the ‘live’ parts of an AV component, and they do a similar test for ‘small screwdrivers’ with regular PSUs. If contact is possible, then that part must be isolated.

    Guess that IEC is about 'no escaping flames' /AND/ 'no fingers get inside - size vents', Kitguru might be misunderstanding.

    I don't understand why this is relevant for the end users now. It's relevant for distributors, resellers, brands and system builders for sure who need to prepare for those changes. Releasing a press statement before updating all products feels weird for me.

    Yeah. It is weird and it isn't press release worthy.
