BS EN 55024 has just been released as the new 2010 edition. The popular standard is titled “Information technology equipment. Immunity characteristics. Limits and methods of measurement.” The date on the new edition is January 2011 and the document is available now from Document Center Inc.
The new BS EN 55024:2010 is the official English language edition of the EN 55024 and is identical to the CISPR 24, 2010 Edition.
It establishes uniform requirements for the electromagnetic immunity of information technology equipment. BS EN 55024 specifies applicable tests, test levels, product operating conditions and assessment criteria. Test methods are then found in the referenced Basic EMC Immunity standards.
BS EN 55024 sets out the requirements to provide an adequate level of intrinsic immunity. The goal is for the equipment to operate as intended in its environment. The standard specifies the immunity test requirements for equipment defined in the scope in relation to continuous and transient, conducted and radiated disturbances, including electrostatic discharges (ESD).
Some tests are specified in defined frequency bands or at selected frequencies because of testing and performance assessment considerations. Equipment which fulfils the requirements at these frequencies is deemed to fulfil the requirements in the entire frequency range from 0 Hz to 400 GHz for electromagnetic phenomena.
The test requirements are specified for each port considered.
