operational conditions, to magnetic disturbances at power frequencies 50 Hz and 60 Hz related to:
- residential and commercial locations;
- industrial installations and power plants;
- medium voltage and high voltage sub-stations.
The applicability of this standard to equipment installed in different locations is determined by the presence of the phenomenon, as specified in Clause 4. This standard does not consider disturbances due to capacitive or inductive coupling in cables or other parts of the field installation.
Other IEC standards dealing with conducted disturbances cover these aspects.
The object of this standard is to establish a common and reproducible basis for evaluating the performance of electrical and electronic equipment for household, commercial and industrial applications when subjected to magnetic fields at power frequency (continuous and short duration field).
The standard defines:
- recommended test levels;
- test equipment;
- test set-up;
- test procedure.
