CANADIAN STANDARD ASSOCIATION (CSA):
Right now we are following the CSA Standard CSA 22.2 No. 950-M93 and 950-M95 for all our I.T.E. equipments. From April 1, 2000 CSA will not accept the application for 950-M93, they will only accept the application for CSA 22.2 No. 950-M95. The difference between CSA 22.2 No. 950-M93 and 950-M95 is basically the creepage, clearance and the spacing requirement in the power supply area. The products that are approved before March 31, 2000, as CSA 950-M93, will be allowed to sell till April 1, 2005. after that we have to bring our product to CSA 950-M95 compliance or if we have decided not to produce that product any more we can just delete them.
CSA 22.2 No. 950-M95 Standard is basically the same standard as International Standard IEC 950 + Canadian deviation.
CSA 22.2 No. 950-M95 Standard = IEC 950 + Canadian Deviation.
In order to get CSA 22.2 No. 950-M95 approval, CSA engineer does the series of tests, most common tests are: Input test, temperature test, leakage current test, dielectric test, high voltage test, transformer overload test, open and short test on the critical components of the Main and power supply board, impact test, oven test and mold stress test.
If nothing goes wrong it takes 6 weeks to get the CSA approval. Once you get the CSA approval you can put the CSA label with CSA mark on the products. Please see below the CSA label/mark.
