IEC 61326-1:2012, “Electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use – EMC requirements – Part 1: General requirements,” has just been released and is now available from Document Center Inc. The document specifies requirements for immunity and emissions regarding electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) for electrical equipment, operating from a supply or battery of less than 1 000 V a.c. or 1 500 V d.c. or from the circuit being measured.
Types of equipment covered by IEC 61326-1 are intended for professional, industrial-process, industrial-manufacturing and educational use. These include equipment and computing devices for
– measurement and test,
– laboratory use,
– accessories intended for use with the above (such as sample handling equipment),
all intended to be used in industrial and non-industrial locations.
This 46-page second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 2005. It constitutes a technical revision.
The significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are:
- the immunity test levels and performance criteria have been reviewed,
- requirements for portable test and measurement equipment have been clarified and amended, and
- the description of the electromagnetic environments has been improved.
