The government establishes quality criteria for USB Type-C chargers and digital TV plugs.

The Bureau of Indian Guidelines (BIS) has developed standards for USB Type C receptacles, plugs, and cables in an effort to standardise charging solutions for smartphones and other electronics marketed in India.

The Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution announced in a statement that the BIS has released three “important” Indian Standards in the field of Electronics. “The first standard for digital television receivers with built-in satellite tuners is the Indian Standard. The Technical Committee of the Bureau of Indian Standards has produced the Indian Standard IS 18112:2022 Specification for televisions with built-in satellite tuners. TVs made in accordance with this Indian standard will enable reception of Free-To-Air TV and Radio channels simply by attaching a dish antenna with LNB mounted in a suitable location on the building’s roof or side wall.”

Indian Standard for USB Type C receptacles, plugs, and cables is the second standard. Indian standard IS/IEC 62680-1-3:2022 USB Type-C® Cable and Connector Specification has been released by the Bureau of Indian Standards. This Indian standard adopts the current international standard IEC 62680-1:3:2022, according to a statement released on Monday.

According to the statement, “This standard specifies USB Type-C port, plug, and cable specifications for usage in various electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptops, and notebooks, etc.”

This standard would provide standardised charging solutions for smartphones and other electronic devices sold in the United States. This would permit a reduction in the number of charges per consumer, as they would no longer be required to purchase a new charger for each new item. This will help the Indian government achieve its goal of reducing e-waste and moving towards sustainable development, according to the statement.


USB Type-C charging problem

The government had formed an interdepartmental task force to study charging port consistency. In November, consensus reached over the adoption of USB Type-C as a standard charging port.

Previously, users were had to store separate chargers for the numerous electronic devices they owned, resulting in additional expenses, an increase in e-waste, and a great deal of annoyance. According to the report, global efforts are being made to solve these concerns.

According to the assertion, “The third Standard is the Indian Standards for Video Surveillance Systems. Through its technical committee on Alarms and Electronic Security Systems, the Bureau of Indian Standards has created a series of Indian Standards (IS 16910) on Video Surveillance Systems for Security Applications. IS 16910 series of Standards is an adaptation of the IEC 62676 series of International Standards.”

“The standard provides a detailed outline of all aspects of a Video Surveillance System, including requirements for its components such as camera devices, interfaces, system requirements, and tests to determine the image quality of the camera devices, as well as installation guidelines,” according to the statement.

“Given the rapidly advancing technology in the security business and the plethora of VSS options available, it has become difficult for the average individual, be they installers/ specifiers/ users, to select the proper set of VSS that?ts his intended application. This series of Standards would aid customers, installers, and users in establishing their needs, identifying the equipment necessary for their intended use, and evaluating the VSS’s performance objectively. According to the document, this will also make the surveillance system more secure, robust, and cost-effective.

“Video Surveillance System (VSS) is an indispensable security component that is nearly universally employed to record any undesired activity. Due to the vast number of video cameras available for purchase and the seemingly infinite number of camera features and settings, acquiring a video surveillance system that produces images of sufficient quality for the intended purpose has become complicated and technically difficult. “In addition, neither the owners nor the installers have a clear understanding of the objective of each video surveillance system nor the amount of information required to achieve that aim,” the report continued.

The action follows steps made by the ministry regarding the common charge issue. Regarding the matter, the ministry had formed an inter-ministerial task team.

During a task force meeting on November 16, 2022, stakeholders reached a “wide consensus” on the adoption of USB Type – C as a charging port for electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops.
