BS EN 61000-6-4:2007+A1:2011

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). Generic standards. Emission standard for industrial environments

Status : Current, Superseded   Published : February 2007 Replaced By : BS EN IEC 61000-6-4:2019



What is BS EN 6100-6-4:2007+A1:2011?

BS EN 6100 specifies the electromagnetic compatibility emission requirements for electrical and electronic equipment and components designed for industrial environments. It covers the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz. This standard concerns electrical equipment that has to be connected to a power network, or uses battery power in an industrial environment – whether it’s indoors or outdoors. For a location to be classified as industrial, it has to have industrial, scientific and medical apparatus; heavy inductive or capacitive loads; and high currents associated with electromagnetic fields.

How does it work?

This standard’s main objective is to define the emission test requirements for electrical equipment in relation to continuous, transient, conducted and radiated system disturbances. These emission requirements have been developed to make sure disturbances by electrical equipment that operates normally in industrial locations do not influence other electronic components from functioning. BS EN 6100 does not cover faulty conditions of industrial equipment.

Who should buy it?

  • Electromagnetic compatibility specialists
  • Electric engineers
  • Industrial engineers
  • Manufacturers of industrial electronic equipment and components
  • Suppliers of industrial electric equipment
