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.

4 General requirements
This document applies in the following way.

– If no applicable EMC product standard exists, the test set-up, test levels and performance

criteria of the IEC 63044 series apply.
– If an applicable EMC product standard does not specify requirements for HBES

applications, the test set-up, test levels and general performance criteria of the IEC 63044

series apply. The specific performance criteria of the product standard apply.

– If a product standard specifies requirements for HBES (see Annex C for examples), the

test levels and general performance criteria of the IEC 63044 series shall be adopted as

the minimum level.
5 Performance criteria
5.1 General performance criteria

During and after all tests, independent of the performance criteria, the device shall not block

the communication among the other HBES devices or send unintended telegrams.

A functional description and a definition of performance criteria, during or as a consequence

of the EMC testing, shall be provided by the manufacturer and noted in the test report, based

on the following criteria.

– Many devices operate using sophisticated protocol services which permit the recovery of

data corrupted by interference or cause re-transmission of data in the event of corruption.

Transmission errors caused by the application of the tests in this document and which are

subsequently corrected by the protocol services are regarded as normal and the
equipment is regarded as operating as intended in such circumstances;

– Changes in stored data, such as communication error logs, and which are not directly

related to the intended function of the equipment shall be ignored, or recorded on request

by the manufacturer.
5.2 Performance criterion A

In addition to the general performance criteria in 5.1, the device shall continue to operate

according to its product documentation as intended during and after the test. No unintended

change of state, stored data directly related to the intended function, unintended or loss of

function is allowed.

During the test, audio and/or video signals may be corrupted during the test, providing the

information is kept intelligible to a qualitative evaluation.
---------------------- Page: 12 ----------------------
IEC 63044-5-1:2017 © IEC 2017 – 11 –
5.3 Performance criterion B

In addition to the general performance criteria in 5.1, the device shall continue to operate

according to its product documentation as intended after the test. Unintended change of state,

stored data directly related to the intended function, unintended function or loss of function is

not allowed after the test.

The measurement conditions shall be defined by the manufacturer. During the test,

degradation of performance is allowed as follows.

– For analogue I/O signal ports, degradation up to 10 times the tolerance specified in

product documentation, with a maximum value of 50 % of full scale, is allowed.

– For digital I/O signal ports, no unexpected change of state or stored data related to the

intended function is allowed.

– For HBES/BACS network port, degradation of performance is allowed, but not loss of

communication for longer than 1 min.
5.4 Performance criterion C

In addition to the general performance criteria in 5.1, temporary loss of function is allowed,

provided the function is self-recoverable or can be restored by the operation of the controls.

6 Standard test conditions
6.1 General
EMC tests are carried out on a single device (EUT).

All tests shall be done with a minimum test configuration. A minimum test configuration is a

set of devices to exercise the fundamental functions of the EUT.

The minimum test configuration adopted for the EUT shall be recorded on the test report.

Examples of test set ups are provided in Annex B.
The minimum test configuration may be different for each test.

Precautions should be taken to prevent auxiliary devices from being disturbed by tests.

In addition:

– Where a relevant International product Standard (IEC) exists, which defines suitable

operating condition(s) during EMC tests, the operating condition(s) of the EUT, during the

test conditioning, shall be as defined in that Standard.

– Where no relevant International product Standard (IEC) exists, the operating condition(s)

of the EUT, during the test conditioning, shall include at least that (those) corresponding

to the main functional mode (appropriate to the test being undertaken) of the system which

it forms part of.

The configuration and mode(s) of operation during the tests shall be precisely noted in the

test report.

– The use of dedicated software for testing purposes is allowed, providing that all significant

functions are exercised.

– All I/O signal and HBES/BACS network ports shall be tested, with cables attached. If the

EUT has more than five identical ports then at least 10 % of them, with a minimum of five,

shall be tested with cables attached.
NOTE The term “identical” means same hardware and software characteristics.
---------------------- Page: 13 ----------------------
– 12 – IEC 63044-5-1:2017 © IEC 2017

– Ports (e.g. test and service ports) to which cables are normally not attached need no

cables attached and need not be tested.

– Cable types (e.g. screened, unscreened, twisted pair) shall be those specified by the

manufacturer. If the manufacturer does not specify the cable types in product
documentation, unshielded non-twisted cables shall be used.

– Extensible cables (such as handset cable) shall not be intentionally stretched during the

test. For such cables, the reference length refers to unstretched conditions.

– If the device is required to be installed in a specific case or cabinet according to

manufacturer’s product documentation, all tests on the EUT shall be carried out using

such an enclosure.

– If the device can be installed in different kinds of cabinets available on the market, tests

shall be carried out on the EUT without the cabinet to allow repeatability.

– EUT, auxiliary equipment and cables shall be kept in fixed positions (e.g. by means of

mechanical constraints) during the test.
– A description of the test set-up shall be contained in the test report.
– The cable type shall be referenced in the test report.
6.2 Immunity
6.2.1 Electrostatic discharge (ESD)
This test shall be performed according to the test set-up and test procedures
