Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 6-1: Generic standards - Immunity standard for residential, commercial and light-industrial environments

Applies to electrical and electronic apparatus intended for use in residential, commercial and light-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. This generic EMC immunity standard is applicable if no relevant dedicated product or product-family EMC immunity standard exists. This standard applies to apparatus intended to be directly connected to a low-voltage public mains network or connected to a dedicated DC source which is intended to interface between the apparatus and the low-voltage public mains network. This standard applies also to apparatus which is battery operated or is powered by a non-public, but non-industrial, low-voltage power distribution system if this apparatus is intended to be used in the locations described below. The environments encompassed by this standard are residential, commercial and light-industrial locations, both indoor and outdoor. The following list, although not comprehensive, gives an indication of locations which are included: - residential properties, for example houses, apartments; - retail outlets, for example shops, supermarkets; - business premises, for example offices, banks; - areas of public entertainment, for example cinemas, public bars, dance halls; - outdoor locations, for example petrol stations, car parks, amusement and sports centres; - light-industrial locations, for example workshops, laboratories, service centres. Locations which are characterised by being supplied directly at low voltage from the public mains network are considered to be residential, commercial or light-industrial. The immunity requirements have been selected to ensure an adequate level of immunity for apparatus at residential, commercial and light-industrial locations. The levels do not, however, cover extreme cases, which may occur at any location, but with an extremely low probability of occurrenc

Compatibilité électromagnétique (CEM) - Partie 6-1: Normes génériques - Norme d’immunité pour les environnements résidentiels, commerciaux et de l'industrie légère

S'applique aux appareils électriques et électroniques destinés à être utilisés dans des environnements résidentiels, commerciaux et de l'industrie légère. Cette partie couvre les exigences d'immunité dans la gamme de fréquences de 0 Hz à 400 GHz. Il n'est pas nécessaire de réaliser des essais aux fréquences pour lesquelles aucune exigence n'est spécifiée. Cette norme générique d'immunité CEM s'applique en l'absence de norme d'immunité CEM applicable, spécifique à un produit ou à une famille de produits. Cette norme s'applique aux appareils destinés à être raccordés directement au réseau public d'alimentation basse tension ou à une source de courant continu spécifique destinée à servir d'interface entre l'appareil et le réseau public d'alimentation basse tension. Cette norme s'applique également aux appareils alimentés par piles ou batteries ou par un système de distribution basse tension non public, mais non industriel, lorsque cet appareil est destiné à être utilisé dans les emplacements décrits ci-dessous. Les environnements couverts par cette norme sont les sites résidentiels, les locaux commerciaux et de l'industrie légère, à la fois intérieurs et extérieurs. La liste suivante, bien que non exhaustive, donne une indication sur les sites qui sont couverts: - propriétés résidentielles, par exemple maisons, appartements; - lieux de vente au détail, par exemple boutiques, supermarchés; - centres d'affaires, par exemple bureaux, banques; - locaux de loisirs recevant du public, par exemple cinémas, bars, dancings; - sites extérieurs, par exemple stations service, parcs de stationnement, centres de loisirs et centres sportifs; - locaux de l'industrie légère, par exemple ateliers, laboratoires, centres de services. Les sites qui sont caractérisés comme étant alimentés directement en basse tension par le réseau public sont considérés comme résidentiels, commerciaux ou pour l'industrie légère. Les exigences d'immunité ont été choisies pour assurer un niveau adé

Elektromagnetna združljivost (EMC) - 6-1. del: Osnovni standardi - Odpornost v stanovanjskih, poslovnih in manj zahtevnih industrijskih okoljih

Uporablja se za električne in elektronske naprave, ki so namenjene uporabi v stanovanjskih, poslovnih in manj zahtevnih industrijskih okoljih. Zajema zahteve glede odpornosti v frekvenčnem razponu od 0 Hz do 400 GHz. Za frekvence, za katere ni določenih zahtev, ni treba opraviti preskusov. Ta generični standard o odpornosti proti elektromagnetnim motnjam se uporablja, če ne obstaja ustrezen poseben standard o odpornosti proti elektromagnetnim motnjam za izdelek ali družino izdelkov. Ta standard se uporablja za naprave, ki so namenjene za neposredno povezavo z glavnim javnim nizkonapetostnim omrežjem ali povezavo s posebnim virom enosmernega toka, ki je namenjen povezavi med napravo in glavnim javnim nizkonapetostnim omrežjem. Ta standard se uporablja tudi za naprave, ki delujejo na baterije ali se napajajo iz zasebnega, vendar ne industrijskega, nizkonapetostnega sistema za distribucijo energije, če je naprava namenjena za uporabo na spodaj navedenih lokacijah. Ta standard zajema stanovanjske, poslovne in manj zahtevne industrijske lokacije, in sicer v zaprtih prostorih in na prostem. Na naslednjem seznamu so navedene nekatere od zajetih lokacij: – stanovanjski objekti, na primer hiše in stanovanja, – maloprodajna mesta, na primer trgovine in supermarketi, – poslovni objekti, na primer pisarne in banke, – javne zabaviščne površine, na primer kinodvorane, javni lokali in plesišča, – lokacije na prostem, na primer bencinski servisi, parkirišča ter zabaviščni in športni centri, – manj zahtevna industrijska okolja, na primer delavnice, laboratoriji in storitvena središča. Lokacije, ki se napajajo neposredno z nizko napetostjo iz glavnega javnega omrežja, se štejejo za stanovanjska, poslovna ali manj zahtevna industrijska okolja. Zahteve glede odpornosti so izbrane tako, da zagotavljajo ustrezno raven odpornosti naprav v stanovanjskih, poslovnih in manj zahtevnih industrijskih okoljih. Vendar stopnje ne zajemajo izjemnih primerov, ki se lahko zgodijo na kateri koli lokaciji, čeprav je verjetnost zelo majhna.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61000-6-1 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 77:

Electromagnetic compatibility.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2005. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) improvement of the environmental description;

b) extension of the frequency range for the radio-frequency electromagnetic field test

according to IEC 61000-4-3;

test according to IEC 61000-4-3;

d) change of the repetition frequency for the fast transients immunity test according to

IEC 61000-4-4;
e) introduction of requirements according to IEC 61000-4-34;
f) revision of the test levels;
g) consideration of measurement uncertainty;
h) addition of Annex A.

FDIS Report on voting
77/520/FDIS 77/522/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

A list of all parts in the IEC 61000 series, published under the general title Electromagnetic

compatibility (EMC), can be found on the IEC website.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be

ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY (EMC) –
Part 6-1: Generic standards –
Immunity standard for residential,
commercial and light-industrial environments
1 Scope

This part of IEC 61000 for EMC immunity requirements applies to electrical and electronic

equipment intended for use in residential, commercial, public and light-industrial locations.

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.

This generic EMC immunity standard is applicable if no relevant dedicated product or product-

family EMC immunity standard exists.

This standard applies to electrical and electronic equipment intended to be operated in

• residential locations, as defined in 3.8, both indoor and outdoor,

• commercial, public and light industrial locations, as defined in 3.9, both indoor and

outdoor.

This standard applies also to equipment which is battery operated or is powered by a non-

public, but non-industrial, low voltage power distribution system if this equipment is intended

to be used in the locations defined in 3.8 or 3.9.

This standard defines the immunity test requirements for equipment specified 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

equipment operating within residential, commercial, public and light-industrial locations. The

levels do not, however, cover extreme cases, which may occur at any location, but with 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. They are specified for each port considered.

NOTE 1 Information on other disturbance phenomena is given in IEC TR 61000-4-1.
NOTE 2 Safety considerations are not covered by this standard.

NOTE 3 In special cases, situations will arise where the levels of disturbances may exceed the test levels

specified in this standard, for example where a hand-held transmitter is used in proximity to equipment. In these

instances, special mitigation measures may have to be employed.
2 Normative references

The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and

are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For

undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any

Note 1 to entry: Examples of ports of interest are shown in Figure 1. The enclosure port is the physical boundary

of the equipment (e.g. enclosure). The enclosure port provides for radiated and electrostatic discharge (ESD)

energy transfer, whereas the other ports provide for conducted energy transfer, either by direct injection or by

induction.

enclosure port

physical boundary of the equipment through which electromagnetic fields may radiate or on

which they may impinge
3.3
signal/control port

port at which a conductor or cable intended to carry signals is connected to the equipment

EXAMPLE Analog inputs, outputs and control lines; data buses; communication networks, etc.

3.4
power port

port at which a conductor or cable, carrying the electrical input/output power needed for the

operation (functioning), is connected to the equipment
3.5
public mains network

electricity lines to which all categories of consumers have access and which are operated by

an electrical power supply and/or distribution organization for the purpose of supplying

electrical energy
3.6
long distance line

line connected to a signal/control port and which inside a building is longer than 30 m, or

which leaves the building (including a line installed outdoors)
3.7
low voltage
voltage having a value below a conventionally adopted limit

Note 1 to entry: Low voltage is typically considered as a set of voltage levels used for the distribution of electricity

and whose upper limit is generally accepted to be 1 000 V AC or 1 500 V DC.

3.8
residential location

location which exists as an area of land designated for the construction of domestic dwellings,

and is characterized by the fact that equipment is directly connected to a low-voltage public

mains network or connected to a dedicated DC source which is intended to interface between

the equipment and the low-voltage mains network

EXAMPLE Examples of residential locations are: houses, apartments, farm buildings used for living.

Note 1 to entry: The function of a domestic dwelling is to provide a place for one or more people to live.

A dwelling can be a single, separate building (as in a detached house) or a separate section of a larger building (as

in an apartment in an apartment block).

Note 2 to entry: The connection between location and electromagnetic environment is given in 3.11.

commercial, public and light-industrial location

location exemplified by areas of the city centre, offices, public transport systems

(road/train/underground), and modern business centres containing a concentration of office

automation equipment (PCs, fax machines, photocopiers, telephones, etc.), and characterized

by the fact that equipment is directly connected to a low-voltage public mains network or

connected to a dedicated DC source which is intended to interface between the equipment

and the low-voltage mains network
EXAMPLE Examples of commercial, public or light-industrial locations are:
• retail outlets, for example shops, supermarkets;
• business premises, for example offices, banks, hotels, data centres;
• areas of public entertainment, for example cinemas, public bars, dance halls;
• places of worship, for example temples, churches, mosques, synagogues;

• outdoor locations, for example petrol stations, car parks, amusement and sports centres;

• general public locations, for example parks, amusement facilities, public offices;

• hospitals, educational institutions, for example schools, universities, colleges;

• public traffic area, railway stations, and public areas of an airport;

• light-industrial locations, for example workshops, laboratories, service centres.

Note 1 to entry: The connection between location and electromagnetic environment is given in 3.11.

3.10
DC distribution network

local DC electricity supply network in the infrastructure of a certain site or building intended

for flexible use by one or more different types of equipment and ensuring continuous power

supply independently from the conditions of the public mains network

Note 1 to entry: Connection to a remote local battery is not regarded as a DC distribution network, if such a link

comprises only power supply for a single piece of equipment.
3.11
electromagnetic environment
totality of electromagnetic phenomena existing at a given location

Note 1 to entry: In general, the electromagnetic environment is time-dependent and its description may need a

statistical approach.

Note 2 to entry: It is very important not to confuse the electromagnetic environment and the location itself.
