EMC & eMobility

For a company embarking on EMC testing for either component or vehicle-level testing of their EV products, it is necessary first to have a good understanding of the EMC regulatory situation.

This International Standard is applicable to controls for building automation within the scope of ISO 16484. This part 2-14 also applies to automatic electrical controls for equipment that may be used by the public, such as equipment intended to be used in shops, offices, hospitals, farms and commercial and industrial applications.

EXAMPLE Controls for commercial catering, heating and air-conditioning equipment. Electric actuators for appliances are within the scope of IEC 60335.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1995, its Amendment 1 (2001) and its Amendment 2 (2007). This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: adapting it to the 5th Ed of IEC 60730-1, addition of checking electric actuators with action 1.AB or 2AB, and modification of tests under abnormal condition. This Part 2-14 is intended to be used in conjunction with IEC 60730-1. It was established on the basis of the 5th edition of that standard (2013). Consideration may be given to future editions of, or amendments to, IEC 60730-1. This part 2-14 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 60730-1, so as to convert that publication into the IEC standard: Particular requirements for electric actuators. Where this part 2-14 states “addition”, “modification” or “replacement”, the relevant requirement, test specification or explanatory matter in part 1 should be adapted accordingly. Where no change is necessary part 2-14 indicates that the relevant clause or subclause applies.”
