Road vehicles — Test methods for electrical disturbances from electrostatic discharge
|Publication Date:||15 July 2008|
|ICS Code (Electrical and electronic equipment):||43.040.10|
This International Standard specifies the electrostatic discharge (ESD) test methods necessary to evaluate electronic modules intended for vehicle use. It applies to discharges in the following cases:
- ESD in assembly;
- ESD caused by service staff;
- ESD caused by occupants.
ESD applied to the device under test (DUT) can directly influence the DUT. ESD applied to neighbouring parts can couple into supply and signal lines of the DUT in the vehicle and/or directly into the DUT.
This International Standard describes test procedures for evaluating both electronic modules on the bench and complete vehicles. This International Standard applies to all types of road vehicles regardless of the propulsion system (e.g. spark-ignition engine, diesel engine, electric motor).
This International Standard is based in part on IEC 61000-4-2 and describes vehicle-specific requirements.
This International Standard does not apply to pyrotechnic modules.
