This indicates compliance with all technical directives applicable to that product or system. For most electrical or electronic apparatus this includes the EMC Directive.
The simplest way to demonstrate compliance with the protection requirements of the EMC Directive is by making a declaration of conformity to the appropriate harmonised standards.
A harmonised standard is a standard that has been formally accepted by the EU, and referenced in the EC Official Journal. These standards are generally drawn from IEC, CISPR or ETSI standards and are prefixed "EN".
Austest can provide test services to demonstrate compliance with most harmonised EMC standards for most product types. The harmonised standards usually require emissions and immunity tests to be performed on the product.
The most common emission tests required are conducted mains and radiated disturbances. Both tests require specialised equipment and procedures.
A recent additional requirement comes in the form of EN61000-3-2 and EN61000-3-3 which effectively mandate harmonics and flicker limits for all mains powered devices.
Austest performs testing to a range of harmonised standards that may be used to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the EMC Directive.
The most commonly required immunity tests invoked by the harmonised standards are:
EN61000-4-2 Electrostatic Discharge
EN61000-4-3 Radiated field
EN61000-4-4 Electrical fast transients & bursts
EN61000-4-6 Conducted RF immunity
EN61000-4-8 Magnetic Field Immunity
EN61000-4-11 AC supply dips and interruptions
Austest can provide testing to these and other immunity standards.
