Scope:

These requirements cover electromagnetic interference (EMI) filters installed on, or connected to, 1,000 V or lower potential circuits, 50 – 60 Hz, or up to 1,500 Vdc, and installed in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.

These requirements cover filters used to attenuate unwanted radio-frequency signals (such as noise or interference) generated from electromagnetic sources. These filters consist of capacitors and inductors used alone or in combination with each other and may be provided with resistors. 

These requirements cover facility filters, cord-connected filters, and direct plug-in filter

These requirements do not cover transient-voltage surge suppressors (that is, devices for repeated limiting of voltage surges on power circuits such as silicone avalanche diodes, metal oxide varistors, gas tubes, spark-gaps, etc). Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors are investigated under the Standard for Surge Protective Devices, UL 1449. These requirements also do not cover EMI filters for outdoor use. Appliance filters are covered under the Standard for Passive Filter Units for Electromagnetic Interference Suppression – Part 3: Passive Filter Units for Which Safety Tests are Appropriate, UL 60939-3. 

These requirements do not cover direct plug-in products and cord-connected products provided with more than two receptacles. A direct plug-in product employing more than two receptacles and having an EMI filter is investigated under the requirements for current taps in the Standard for Attachment Plugs and Receptacles, UL 498. A cord-connected product employing more than two receptacles and having an EMI filter is investigated under the Standard for Relocatable Power Taps, UL 1363. The EMI filter part of these products would be investigated to determine compliance with the requirements in this standard in so far as they apply.
