Reference EN 61000-4-12:1995
Title Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 4-12: Testing and measurement techniques - Oscillatory waves immunity test
Project Number 4357
Abstract/Scope This basic standard establishes 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 application, as well as of equipment intended for electrical stations, as applicable. The purpose of this standard is to define: - test voltage and current waveforms; - ranges of test levels; - test equipment; - test set-up; - test procedure.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
