International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 50519:2010
Title Assessment of workers' exposure to electric and magnetic fields of industrial induction heating equipment
Project Number 14417
Abstract/Scope This European Standard specifies procedures for assessment of electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields produced by industrial and professional induction heating equipment. NOTE This European Standard does not apply to household appliances. Typical induction heating applications are for example: - melting; - zone-melting; - heating before hot forming; - heating by tunnel-inductor; - hardening / coaxial transformer handheld devices; - tube welding; - tube annealing; - hardening; - soldering; - hard-soldering /brazing; - bonding; - annealing; - metal-strip and wire heating; - tempering; - sintering; - shrinking. This product standard covers the frequency range up to 30 MHz taking into account the specific characteristics of industrial and professional induction heating equipment and its usage. This European Standard may also be used for assessment regarding the requirements of Directive 2004/40/EC [1] on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields), provided that no other relevant field sources are present in close proximity. If other field sources are present, additional assessment according to EN 50499:2008 is necessary. This European Standard does not cover protective measures for people with active implants.
