Products that are used to test other equipment or used in laboratories are covered by a series of International EMC standards – IEC 61326.
Due to the wide range of products covered by the scope of the title, a number of ‘Part 2’ standards have been developed to provide specific guidance and requirements for the performance assessment during testing of the product.
IEC 61326 testing
The standards cover a wide range of environments and consequently have a wide variety of test levels and requirements. Our labs in both North America and Europe are fully equipped to test for all products covered by the scope of the standards. It should be noted that some of the Part2 standards cover ‘functional safety’. This is not truly an EMC test, but rather an Electromagnetic Safety standard. It is referenced by safety legislation including the European Machinery Safety Directive and Low Voltage Directive .
