Title Electromagnetic compatibility - Product family standard for audio, video, audio-visual and entertainment lighting control apparatus for professional use - Part 2: Immunity
Project Number 2603
Abstract/Scope This standard for EMC immunity requirements applies to professional audio, video, audio-visual and entertainment lighting control apparatus as defined in clause 4 intended for use in the environments described in clause 5. This includes the digital apparatus defined in 4.5 and sub-assemblies, see 7.4. Disturbances in the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz are covered, but requirements are not established over the whole of that range. NOTE 1 : In annex C, information is included on infra-red radiation in the wave length range 0,7æm to 1,6æm. Fault conditions of source or victim apparatus are not taken into account. Apparatus as defined in 4.4, 4.5 and 4.6 may be operated with any source of power. NOTE 2: Sources of power may include, for example: . the public low-voltage supply; . private supplies with similar characteristics; . a d.c. source provided specifically for the apparatus; . batteries internal to the apparatus; . stand by generators. NOTE 3: In special cases, for instance if it is intended to use a hand-held transmitter in proximity, additional mitigative measures may have to be employed to increase the electromagnetic Immunity further, beyond the specified limits. This standard does not apply to: . consumer apparatus . apparatus specifically designed for security systems . apparatus designed to radiate electromagnetic energy for radio communications purposes

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
