Title Arc welding equipment - Part 10: Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements
Project Number 24258
Abstract/Scope IEC 60974-10:2014 specifies a) applicable standards and test methods for radio-frequency (RF) emissions; b) applicable standards and test methods for harmonic current emission, voltage fluctuations and flicker; c) immunity requirements and test methods for continuous and transient, conducted and radiated disturbances including electrostatic discharges. This standard is applicable to equipment for arc welding and allied processes, including power sources and ancillary equipment, for example wire feeders, liquid cooling systems and arc striking and stabilizing devices. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2007 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - inclusion of optional use of a decoupling network and a load outside the test chamber; - inclusion of an alternative test setup for portable equipment; - inclusion of test conditions for complex controls, liquid cooling systems and arc striking and stabilizing devices; - update of the applicable limits related to the updated reference to CISPR 11; - exclusion of the use of narrow band relaxations for RF emission limits; - update of the applicable limits for harmonics and flicker and inclusion of flow-charts related to the updated reference to IEC 61000-3-11 and IEC 61000-3-12; - update of the requirements for voltage dips related to the updated reference to IEC 61000-4-11 and IEC 61000-4-34; - update of the informative annex for installation and use; - inclusion of symbols to indicate the RF equipment class and restrictions for use.

Normative reference (6)  

(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.
