scope:

This specification covers passive filters used to attenuate unwanted radio-frequency signals (such as noise or interference) generated from electromagnetic sources.

Both single and multi-channel filters within one enclosure or which are built on a printed circuit board forming a compact entity are included within the scope of this specification.

Filters constructed of capacitive elements where the inductance is inherent in the construction of the filter are within the scope of this specification. Similarly, filters constructed of inductive elements where the capacitance is inherent in the construction of the filter are also within the scope of this specification. It is up to the manufacturer to state whether a given component is to be designed as a capacitor, an inductor or a filter. Filters can include also other components like resistors and/or varistors or similar components

This specification applies to passive filter units for electromagnetic interference suppression for which safety tests are appropriate. This implies that filters specified according to this specification will either be connected to mains supplies, when compliance with the mandatory tests of Table 3 is necessary, or used in other circuit positions where the equipment specification prescribes that some or all of these safety tests are required.

This specification applies to passive filter units, which will be connected to an a.c. mains or other supply (d.c. or a.c.) with a nominal voltage not exceeding 1 000 V a.c., with a nominal frequency not exceeding 400 Hz, or 1 500 V d.c.

NOTE For a.c. use, IEC 60384-14 applies to capacitors which will be connected to a.c. mains with a nominal frequency not exceeding 100 Hz.

This specification covers APPLIANCE FILTERS (US) but does not cover FACILITY FILTERS, CORD-CONNECTED FILTERS or DIRECT PLUG-IN FILTERS. These other filters will be covered by another sectional specification.
