Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 6-2: Generic standards – Immunity for industrial environments

Executive summary

Immunity requirements for electrical and electronic apparatus used in industrial environments.


This part of IEC 61000 applies to electrical and electronic apparatus intended for use in industrial environments. Immunity requirements in the frequency range up to 400 GHz are covered.

This European Standard applies to apparatus connected to power network supplied from a high or medium voltage transformer dedicated to the supply of an installation feeding manufacturing or similar plant, and intended to operate in or in proximity to industrial locations. It also applies to battery-operated apparatus and intended to be used in industrial locations.

The environments encompassed by this Standard are industrial, both indoor and outdoor. Industrial locations are characterized by the existence of one or more of the following:

  • industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) apparatus;
  • heavy inductive or capacitive loads are frequently switched;
  • currents and associated magnetic fields are high.

This Standard defines immunity test requirements for apparatus in relation to continuous and transient, conducted and radiated disturbances, including electrostatic discharges.
