Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Part 4-12: Testing and Measurement Techniques - Oscillatory Waves Immunity Test
|Publication Date:||1 September 2006|
|ICS Code (Immunity):||33.100.20|
Scope and object
This part of IEC 61000 relates to the immunity requirements and test methods for electrical and electronic equipment, under operational conditions, to non-repetitive damped oscillatory transients (ring waves) occurring in low-voltage power, control and signal lines supplied by public and non-public networks.
The object of this basic standard is to establish the immunity requirements and a common reference for evaluating in a laboratory the performance of electrical and electronic equipment intended for residential, commercial and industrial applications, as well as of equipment intended for power stations and substations, as applicable.
NOTE As described in IEC Guide 107, this is a basic EMC publication for use by product committees of the IEC. As also stated in Guide 107, the IEC product committees are responsible for determining whether this immunity test standard should be applied or not, and if applied, they are responsible for determining the appropriate test levels and performance criteria. TC 77 and its sub-committees are prepared to co-operate with product committees in the evaluation of the value of particular immunity tests for their products.
The purpose of this standard is to define:
- test voltage and current waveforms;
- ranges of test levels;
- test equipment;
- test set-up;
- test procedure.
