Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). Testing and measurement techniques. Surge immunity test

Status : Current, Superseded   Published : September 2014 Replaced By : BS EN 61000-4-5:2014+A1:2017



The standard is a technical revision of BS EN 61000-4-5: 2006. Its aim is to define test methods and equipment to determine the immunity of electrical and electronic equipment from electromagnetic disturbances caused by lightning or switching transients.

BS EN 61000 sets out a range of test levels to find the reaction of the equipment under test (EUT) under specified operational conditions to surge voltages caused by switching and lightning effects. It defines the necessary test equipment – including wave generators and coupling/decoupling networks. It explains the test setup for tests applied to EUT power ports, unshielded symmetrical/unsymmetrical interconnections and shielded lines. It specifies test procedures, laboratory reference conditions, the application of the surge in the laboratory and test reports.
