The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has released IEC 61000-2-2:2002/AMD1:2017 . Amendment 1 – Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) – Part 2-2: Environment – Compatibility levels for low-frequency conducted disturbances and signaling in public low-voltage power supply systems and is now available on the IEC webstore.

Description: “IEC 61000-2-2:2002+A1:2017 is concerned with conducted disturbances in the frequency range from 0 kHz to 9 kHz, with an extension up to 148,5 kHz specifically for mains signaling systems.

It gives compatibility levels for public low voltage a.c. distribution systems having a nominal voltage up to 420 V, single-phase or 690 V, three-phase and a nominal frequency of 50 Hz or 60 Hz. Compatibility levels are specified for electromagnetic disturbances of the types which can be expected in public low voltage power supply systems, for guidance in: – the limits to be set for disturbance emission into public power supply systems; – the immunity limits to be set by product committees and others for the equipment exposed to the conducted disturbances present in public power supply systems.
