    Thanks for this article. I am searching for the meaning of some other symbols present on power supplies.
    And I already found information on many symbols on the web, for example:

    However I cannot find the meaning of the symbol "10" surrounded by 2 arrows, like on the right side of picture here:

    Do you know the meaning of this "10" symbol ?

    Could not find a source for the house Symbol for indoor use.
    Which Standard does include it?
    I had a look into EN 62368-1 and couple of other Standards and regulations.
    Could not find any source showing this logo.
    Is it voluntary or is it a mandatory by and Standard or Regulation?
    Does anyone know?
