EMC Compliance Testing
Pacific Power Source has a long history of providing AC power test solutions to perform compliance testing to both Commercial (IEC) and Avionics (RTCA, Mil-Std, Boeing, and Airbus) test standards. With a large installed base of precision AC Power Sources in both commercial and defense related accounts, we offer a broad spectrum of software and hardware solutions that help our customers accomplish compliance with regulatory product requirements.
IEC Compliance Test
The EMC Directive is one of the ‘New Approach’ Directives and applies across all 27 member states of the European Union (EU). The Directive applies to all electronic or electrical products liable to cause or be disturbed by electromagnetic interference (EMI). As a result a large number of manufacturers in the electronics or electrical industries need to ensure that their products are compliant with the requirements of the Directive and be able to demonstrate that this is the case in order to affix the CE Mark.
To verify compliance with these directives, the International Electrotechnical Commission has issued a number of harmonized standards that describe test methods, test levels and pass or fail criteria. A number of these test standards cover immunity to commonly found AC line anomalies that are known to occur on the public Low Voltage (LV) network. These conducted immunity standards are numbered IEC 61000-4-nn. The IEC is one of three global sister organizations (IEC, ISO, ITU) that develop International Standards for the world.
Pacific Power Source offers and extensive range of pre-programmed IEC 61000-4 AC (and some DC) Immunity test sequences. Specifically, the following IEC standards are available.
