EN 61000-4-12 Testing – Ring Wave Testing

The EN 61000-4-12 test standard is harmonized with the IEC 61000-4-12 test standard. It also relates to the immunity requirements and test methods for electrical and electronic equipment. The equipment is under operational conditions, to non-repetitive damped oscillatory transients (ring wave test) occurring in low-voltage power, control, and signal lines supplied by public and non-public networks.

The scope of EN 61000-4-12 testing is to establish immunity requirements. The scope also defines common references for evaluating in a laboratory the performance of electrical and electronic equipment. The equipment being tested is intended for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. It may also be intended for power stations and substations, as applicable.

Keystone Compliance has the knowledge, experience, and equipment to streamline EN-61000-4-12 compliance testing. With five EMC test chambers, including three -three-meter chambers, meeting tight scheduling requirements is rarely a challenge. What makes us the premier EN 61000-4-12 test lab that we are is our engineering assistance.

When obstacles arise during a test program, our engineers get involved to determine the source of the failure and potential corrections. This consultative approach is why so many manufacturers choose Keystone Compliance as their EN 61000-4-12 test lab.

The specific sections of the EN 61000 4 12 test standard defines:

  • test voltage and current waveforms
  • ranges of test levels
  • test equipment
  • test set-up
  • test procedure

EN 61000 4 12 also details the description of the phenomenon, relevant parameters, repetition rate, and phase angle.
