BS EN IEC 61000-6-2:2019 Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)

BS EN IEC 61000-6-2:2019

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

Status : Current, Under review   Published : February 2019



What is this standard about?

This part of IEC 61000 for EMC immunity requirements applies to electrical and electronic equipment intended for use in industrial locations, as described below. Immunity requirements in the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz are covered. No tests need to be performed at frequencies where no requirements are specified.

This generic EMC immunity standard is applicable if no relevant dedicated product or productfamily EMC immunity standard exists.

This standard applies to electrical and electronic equipment intended to be operated in industrial locations, both indoor and outdoor.

This standard applies also to equipment intended to be directly connected to a DC distribution network or which is battery operated, and intended to be used in industrial locations.

This standard defines the immunity test requirements for equipment specified in the scope in relation to continuous and transient, conducted and radiated disturbances, including electrostatic discharges.

The immunity requirements have been selected to ensure an adequate level of immunity for equipment operating within industrial locations. The levels do not, however, cover extreme cases, which may occur at any location, but with an extremely low probability of occurrence. Not all disturbance phenomena have been included for testing purposes in this standard, but only those considered as relevant for the equipment covered by this standard. These test requirements represent essential electromagnetic compatibility immunity requirements. They are specified for each port considered.

The industrial environment may be changed by special mitigation measures. Where such measures can be shown to produce an electromagnetic environment equivalent to the residential, commercial or light-industrial environment, then the generic standard for this environment, or the relevant product standard, may be applied.
