When developing circuits with more than 30V, certain security parameters will need to be considered. For leakage current prevention the layout must meet minimum distance requirements as those defined in a series of standards such as DIN EN 60664 VDE 0110, IPC2 221A or UL60950-1. PCB-Investigator is able to offer an automated leakage current analysis to meet those requirements!
