How to Determine Creepage and Clearance Requirements for 48-Volt Applications


This white paper provides OEMs with TE’s approach for evaluating connectors for 48-volt applications that are designed with reference to UL 840 and IEC 60664-1 standards. The paper provides TE’s methodology, for evaluating creepage and clearance, the two key factors that determine maximum safe operating voltage, using a CAD model. Additionally, the paper provides an example of a connector that meets key requirements.
