The International Electrotechnical Commission has published the IEC 61000-6-5:2015 standard. IEC61000-6-5:2015 ed1.0 replaces IEC TS 61000-6-5:2001 and applies to “Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) – Part 6-5: Generic standards – Immunity for equipment used in power station and substation environment.” The standard is available for purchase on the IEC’s website.


IEC 61000-6-5:2015 specifies EMC immunity requirements which apply to electrical and electronic equipment intended for use in power stations and substations. Immunity requirements for electromagnetic phenomena with spectral contributions in the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz are covered. This first edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC TS 61000-6-5 published in 2001. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
