Compliance Testing to IEC/EN 61000-4-8
Compliance Testing to the IEC/EN 61000-4-8 Standard
"The magnetic fields to which equipment is subjected may influence the reli-
able operation of equipment and systems."
The statement above is taken directly from the IEC/EN 61000-4-8 standard,
and is the premise upon which the standard is based. Electronic equipment
can encounter magnetic fields at power line frequencies in a variety of
places. As such, it is wise to ensure that the equipment will operate reliably
when exposed to these power line frequency magnetic fields. The IEC/EN
61000-4-8 standard describes how equipment should be tested for immunity
to power line frequency magnetic fields. This application note provides a
discussion of the standard, including interpretation of the requirements,
and suggestions for equipment selection.
