Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 6-1: Generic standards – Immunity for residential, commercial and light-industrial environments

Executive summary

Electromagnetic compatibility immunity requirements for residential, commercial and light-industrial electrical and electronic apparatus.


This part of EN 61000-6 for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) immunity requirements applies to electrical and electronic apparatus intended for use in residential, commercial and light-industrial environments for which no dedicated product or product-family immunity standard exists. Immunity requirements in the frequency range up to 400 GHz are covered.

This European Standard applies to apparatus directly connected to a low-voltage public mains network or connected to a DC source interfaced between the apparatus and the low-voltage public mains network. This standard applies also to battery operated apparatus or apparatus powered by a non-public, but non industrial, low voltage power distribution system.

This standard defines the immunity test requirements for apparatus in relation to continuous and transient, conducted and radiated disturbances including electrostatic discharges. These test requirements represent essential electromagnetic compatibility immunity requirements. The immunity requirements have been selected to ensure an adequate level of immunity for apparatus at residential, commercial and light-industrial locations. The level does not cover extreme cases occurring at any location but with an extremely low probability of occurrence.
