Did you get the replies you wanted?  Have you ever looked at the standard
EN IEC 61293:2020?  This new version just came out. This new version is
loaded with typos and to many I think they are going to find it more
confusing than what we are currently doing.

One major change this standard is trying to make is the fact that the
literary world is trying to do away with the dash "-" to mean a range
between two values, such as 200-240V.  The new way is something like this,
" 200 V, ..., 240 V ".  I find this very confusing. I know our Manual
writers always change dashes into the word " to ".

Oh, and they really really like spaces. Spaces between everything!!

But here are some examples this standard gives:

2 ~ 230 V
1/N/PE ~ 230 V 50 Hz
2/N ~ 110/220 V 60 Hz  (this would be for 2 phase or split phase in North
America)
3 ~ 400 V
3/N ~ 277/480 V 60 Hz    (North America does use "PE" to show safety ground)
3/N/PE ~ 230/400 V 50 Hz


So if you have a product that has a universal input, it would be rated
something like this:

100 V, ..., 240 V 50/60 Hz    (this looks strange to me)

So I have a question. Since the EN IEC 61293:2020 standard is trying to
standardize on the way we rate electronic devices, what mussel does it have
to force the world to follow it?  How we "rate" equipment seems to be more
of an Industry Standard (do what everyone else is doing) and not set in
stone by some IEC standard.  I really don't get it.

Thanks.
