Title Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 4-8: Testing and measurement techniques - Power frequency magnetic field immunity test
Project Number 22061
Abstract/Scope IEC 61000-4-8:2009 relates to the immunity requirements of equipment, only under operational conditions, to magnetic disturbances at power frequencies 50 Hz and 60 Hz related to: - residential and commercial locations; - industrial installations and power plants; - medium voltage and high voltage sub-stations. The applicability of IEC 61000-4-8:2009 to equipment installed in different locations is determined by the presence of the phenomenon, as specified in Clause 4. This standard does not consider disturbances due to capacitive or inductive coupling in cables or other parts of the field installation. Other IEC standards dealing with conducted disturbances cover these aspects. The object of IEC 61000-4-8:2009 is to establish a common and reproducible basis for evaluating the performance of electrical and electronic equipment for household, commercial and industrial applications when subjected to magnetic fields at power frequency (continuous and short duration field). IEC 61000-4-8:2009 defines: - recommended test levels; - test equipment; - test set-up; - test procedure. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1993 and its Amendment 1 (2000). It forms a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: the scope is extended in order to cover 60 Hz. Characteristics, performance and verification of the test generator and related inductive coils are revised. Modifications are also introduced in the test set-up (GRP) and test procedure. IEC 61000-4-8:2009 has the status of a basic EMC publication in accordance with IEC Guide 107. NEW! IEC 61000-4-8:2009 is also available as IEC Standards+ 61000-4-8:2009 which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.
