CENELEC has released a new edition of EN 60939-3:2015/AC:2016-04. This standard applies to “Passive filter units for electromagnetic interference suppression – Part 3: Passive filter units for which safety tests are appropriate.” The latest edition contains and IEC corrigendum and from April 2016. It is now available on CENELEC’s website.
IEC 60939-3:2015 covers passive filters used to attenuate unwanted radio-frequency signals (such as noise or interference) generated from electromagnetic sources. Both single and multi-channel filters within one enclosure or which are built on a printed circuit board forming a compact entity are included within the scope of this specification. This specification applies to passive filter units for electromagnetic interference suppression for which safety tests are appropriate. This implies that filters specified according to this specification will either be connected to mains supplies, when compliance with the mandatory tests of Table 3 is necessary, or used in other circuit positions where the equipment specification prescribes that some or all of these safety tests are required. This specification applies to passive filter units, which will be connected to an a.c. mains or other supply (d.c. or a.c.) with a nominal voltage not exceeding 1 000 V a.c., with a nominal frequency not exceeding 400 Hz, or 1 500 V d.c. The contents of the corrigendum of April 2016 have been included in this copy.
