What is a SELV supply?
What is a SELV supply?
SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) describes a voltage that is set so low that in the event of direct touch either during proper operation or in the event of a single fault there is no danger of electric shock due to touch current.
What is SELV and non SELV?
Standing for “Safety Extra Low Voltage”, SELV describes low voltages with safe isolation, e.g. with an isolation transformer. SELV ensures an enhanced degree of protection against electric shock.
What does the S stand for in SELV?
Separated Extra Low Voltage (SELV) system is an extra low voltage electrical circuit that is electrically separated from other circuits that carry higher voltages, isolated from the earth and from the protective earth conductors of other circuits.
What voltage is SELV?
Use of SELV (Safety Extra-Low Voltage) The impulse withstand level of insulation between the primary and secondary windings is very high, and/or an earthed metal screen is sometimes incorporated between the windings. The secondary voltage never exceeds 50 V rms.
What is an example of SELV?
Typical examples of SELV are: Access control systems. Lighting control panels. CCTV and security systems.
What is SELV electrical?
IEC defines a SELV system as “an electrical system in which the voltage cannot exceed ELV under normal conditions, and under single-fault conditions, including earth faults in other circuits”.
What is SELV output?
SELV stands for Safety Extra Low Voltage. Some AC-DC power supply installation manuals contain warnings concerning SELV. For example, there may be a warning about connecting two outputs in series because the resulting higher voltage may exceed the defined SELV safe level, which is less than or equal to 60VDC.
What is the purpose of SELV?
SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) describes a voltage that is set so low that in the event of direct touch either during proper operation or in the event of a single fault there is no danger of electric shock due to touch current. In the event of an insulation failure, adequate protection must still be provided.
What protection is SELV?
The Separated Extra Low Voltage (SELV) systems can be thought of as having a protective partition from the other higher voltage systems. Combining the low voltage, basic insulation, and protective separation makes SELV systems one of the safest electrical systems.
Are LED lights SELV?
I recently purchased a mains energised LED driver. It has a CE mark and class 2 symbol, but is not labelled as SELV. The supplier is unsure as to whether it is SELV or not….See Also:

What is SELV lighting?
Regarding lighting, some AC-DC power supplies are included with the Safety Extra Low Voltage. The SELV is a system whose secondary circuit is designed and protected that under normal and fault conditions, the voltages do not exceed a safe value.
