Fixed inductors for electromagnetic interference suppression - Part 2: Sectional specification on power line chokes (IEC 60938-2:2021)

This standard applies to fixed inductors designed for electromagnetic interference suppression, which will be connected to an AC mains or other supply with a nominal voltage not exceeding 1000 V AC r.m.s or 1500 V DC with a nominal frequency not exceeding 400 Hz.
This International Standard is restricted to fixed inductors for which safety tests are appropriate. This implies that inductors specified according to this specification will either be connected to mains supplies, when compliance with the mandatory tests of Annex A is necessary, or used in other circuit positions where the equipment specification prescribes that some or all of these safety tests are required.
The object of this standard is to prescribe standard requirements for safety tests, preferred ratings and characteristics, to select from IEC 60938-1 the appropriate methods of test and to give general performance requirements for suppression inductors. Test severities and performance requirements prescribed in detail specifications referring to this sectional specification shall be of equal or higher performance level. In addition, the minimum requirements for safety tests specified herein always apply.

Inductances fixes d'antiparasitage - Partie 2: Spécification intermédiaire sur les bobines d’arrêt pour ligne électrique (IEC 60938-2:2021)

L'IEC 60938-2:2021 s'applique à des inductances fixes conçues pour s’opposer aux perturbations électromagnétiques, qui sont connectées à un réseau d’alimentation à courant alternatif ou à une autre source d’alimentation dont la tension nominale ne dépasse pas 1 000 V (valeur eff.) en courant alternatif ou 1 500 V en courant continu avec une fréquence nominale qui ne dépasse pas 400 Hz. La présente spécification intermédiaire se limite à des inductances fixes pour lesquelles des essais de sécurité sont souhaitables. Cela signifie que les inductances décrites conformément à la présente spécification sont, soit reliées à l'alimentation secteur, lorsque la conformité aux essais obligatoires de l’Annexe A est nécessaire, soit utilisées en d'autres positions du circuit pour lesquelles la spécification applicable à l'équipement indique que certains ou l'ensemble de ces essais de sécurité sont exigés. Le présent document a pour objet de prescrire des exigences normalisées d'essais de sécurité ainsi que des valeurs assignées et caractéristiques préférentielles, qui permettent de choisir à partir de l’IEC 60938-1 les méthodes d'essai appropriées et de fournir des exigences générales de performance applicables aux inductances d'antiparasitage. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente. - le programme d’essai pour les essais de performance a été supprimé; les essais de sécurité obligatoires et les essais de performance facultatifs sont énumérés dans un seul programme d’essai à l’Annexe B; - les exigences relatives aux bobines d’arrêt à thyristor ont été supprimées; - les exigences relatives aux matériaux sont alignées sur les normes IEC 60939-3 et UL 60939-3; - les bobines d’arrêt à courant alternatif d’une tension jusqu’à 1 000 V et les bobines d’arrêt à courant continu d’une tension jusqu’à 1 500 V sont désormais incluses dans le Domaine d’application.

FIXED INDUCTORS FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC
INTERFERENCE SUPPRESSION –
Part 2: Sectional specification on power line chokes
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.

IEC 60938-2 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 40: Capacitors and resistors for

electronic equipment. It is an International Standard.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 1999 and its

Amendment 1:2006. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition:

a) the test plan for performance testing has been removed; mandatory safety tests and optional

performance tests are listed in one test plan in Annex B;
b) requirements for Thyristor-Chokes have been withdrawn;
c) material requirements are harmonized with IEC 60939-3 and UL 60939-3;
d) AC chokes up to 1 000 V and DC chokes up to 1 500 V are now in the Scope.

INTERFERENCE SUPPRESSION –
Part 2: Sectional specification on power line chokes
1 Scope

This part of IEC 60938 applies to fixed inductors designed for electromagnetic interference

suppression, which will be connected to an AC mains or other supply with a nominal voltage

not exceeding 1 000 V AC RMS or 1 500 V DC with a nominal frequency not exceeding 400 Hz.

This sectional specification is restricted to fixed inductors for which safety tests are appropriate.

This implies that inductors specified according to this specification will either be connected to

mains supplies, when compliance with the mandatory tests of Annex A is necessary, or used in

other circuit positions where the equipment specification prescribes that some or all of these

safety tests are required.

The object of this document is to prescribe standard requirements for safety tests, preferred

ratings and characteristics, to select from IEC 60938-1 the appropriate methods of test and to

give general performance requirements for suppression inductors.
