BS EN 61326-1:2013 - Start year: 2013
Location: Europe - United Kingdom

Description:

Part 1 of the BS EN 61326 series outlines the general requirements behind electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) emissions and immunity requirements for electrical measurement and test equipment.

It specifies requirements for immunity and emissions regarding EMC that are generally applicable to electrical measurement and test equipment, electrical control equipment and electrical laboratory equipment intended for professional, industrial-process, industrial-manufacturing and educational use.

The 2013 version is a technical revision of the 2006 edition which was withdrawn on 14 August 2015. After this date, the 2013 version of the standard must be used to meet the essential requirements of the EMC Directive. NB: The 2013 version is identical to IEC 61326-1, Ed. 2.0 (2012-07).

Notes:

Replaces BS EN 61326-1:2006

BS EN 61326-1 defines the immunity environments for different locations: Basic, Industrial, Controlled Electromagnetic (EM) and Portable Test and Measurement (in Annex A). 

Depending on the electromagnetic environments the equipment is operated in, different emission and immunity test requirements are applicable.

Instruments and equipment within the scope of this standard may often be geographically widespread and therefore operate under a wide range of environmental conditions. By limiting undesired electromagnetic emissions, users of this standard can ensures that no other equipment, installed nearby, is unduly influenced by the equipment under consideration.

Complex electric and electronic systems should require EMC planning in all phases of their design and installation, taking into consideration the electromagnetic environment, any special requirements and the severity of failures.

EN 61326-1:2013 - Start year: 2015
Location: Global - Global

Description:

EN 61326-1:2013, EMC standard for measurement, control and laboratory use is changing from the previous version dated 2006. This new version will likely be mandatory in 2015 after which the 2006 version of this standard will be withdrawn and can no longer be used to meet the essential requirements of the EMC Directive. There are technical changes in the new version of the standard that will require re-testing of products.
