- EN 61000-4-6: Immunity to conducted disturbances, induced by radio-frequency fields.
EN 61000-4-11: Voltage Dips, Short Interruptions and Voltage Variations Immunity Tests.
Tests of EMC emission according to the standard EN 61326:
- EN 61000-3-2: Limits for harmonic current emissions
(equipment input current up to and including 16 A per phase).
- EN 61000-3-3: Limitation of voltage changes, voltage fluctuations and flicker in public low-voltage supply systems, for equipment with rated current phase and not subject to conditional connection.
- EN 55011 (CISPR 11): Industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) radio-frequency equipment; Radio disturbance characteristics - Limits and methods of measurement.
LVD - Directive 2006/95/EC (and former Directive 73/23/EEC)
Our equipments meet the European Directive 2006/95/EC on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to Electrical Safety (Low Voltage). Its conformity has been checked with the Harmonized Standard EN 61010-1:2001 for "Safety requeriments for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use - Part 1: General requeriments", approved by the approved by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC).
Test of Electrical Safety according to the Standard EN 61010-1:
- Marking and documentation.
- Protection against electrical shocks.
- Protection against mechanical hazards.
- Mechanical resistance to shock and impact.
- Protection against the spread of fire.
- Equipment temperature limits and resistance to heat.
- Protection against hazards from fluids.
ATEX - Directive 94/9/EC
Our equipments should not be used in potentially explosive atmospheres.
The Directive 94/9/EC (related to the approximation of the Member States concerning equipment and protection systems for its use under potentially explosive atmospheres) in its chapter I, article 1, section 4, establish that:
- "Excluded from the application ambit of this Directive are those equipments which are destined to be used under no commercial settings where the potentially explosive atmospheres are created in rare occasions only as consequence of a fortuity escape of gas."
The application Directives 94/9/EC, from may 2000, establish in the section 4.1.2. a) that:
- "It is considered that an equipment only enter in the application ambit of the Directive if it is destined (in its totality or partial) to be used in potentially explosive atmosphere. The fact that in the interior of the equipment deliberately, could be a potentially explosive atmosphere has no relevance.
RoHS - Directive 2002/95/EC
Restriction of Hazardous Substances.
WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment.
