Summary of EN 61000-6-2 Regulatory Lab Testing

The EN 61000-6-2 test standard for EMC immunity requirements applies to electrical and electronic apparatus intended for use in industrial environments. Immunity requirements in the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz are covered.

No tests need to be performed at frequencies where no requirements are specified.

EN 6100 6 2 testing is applied only if no relevant dedicated product or product-family EMC immunity standard exists. EN 6100-6-2 is an immunity standard harmonized with the IEC 61000-6-2 test standard. Both apply to apparatus intended to be connected to a power network supplied from a high or medium voltage transformer.

The EN 61000 6-2 test is also intended to operate in or in proximity to industrial locations, as described below. The EN 61000 6 2 test method applies to apparatus which are battery operated. Also, apparatus intended to be used in industrial locations.

Scope of EN 61000-6-2 Electromagnetic Compatibility Testing

The environments encompassed by this standard are industrial, both indoor and outdoor. Industrial locations are in addition characterized by the existence of one or more of the following:

  • industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) apparatus (as defined in CISPR 11);
  • heavy inductive or capacitive loads are frequently switched;
  • currents and associated magnetic fields are high.

The object of 61000-6-2 testing is to define immunity test requirements for apparatus defined in the scope in relation to continuous and transient, conducted, and radiated disturbances, including electrostatic discharges.

The immunity requirements have been selected to ensure an adequate level of immunity for apparatus at industrial locations. The levels do not, however, cover extreme cases. These may occur at any location but have an extremely low probability of occurrence.

Not all disturbance phenomena have been included for testing purposes in this standard, but only those considered as relevant for the equipment covered by this standard. These test requirements represent essential electromagnetic compatibility immunity requirements.

Expert EN 61000-6-2 EMC Compliance Testing

Keystone Compliance can accommodate fixed, mobile and portable devices of all sizes. Our team strives to give our customers more time and energy on product development instead of testing. In addition to EN 61000-6-2 testing, Keystone has a full scope of expertise including environmental and package testing such as temperature, cold chain, and accelerated aging.

Not only do our engineers identify the root of the problem. We additionally work with the manufacturer to determine ways to fix any problems that may arise. This consultative approach is one of the reasons Keystone has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in the country by INC Magazine. It is also a reason why so many manufacturers call Keystone Compliance their EN-61000-6-2 test lab.
