EN 61000-3-2 - Clarifications and test conditions
Clear specifications are made as to which devices are covered by the standard and which devices are not. The standard is not valid for all household appliances. This applies even if the household appliances have a lighting device and if this lighting device is permanently installed.
Within the scope of the standard, special test conditions are specified for refrigerators and freezers with or without variable drive. These test conditions are described in section C 16. Thus, refrigerators and freezers with a variable drive are in Class D and all other appliances are in Class A.
Special test conditions also apply to dust and water extractors and arc welding equipment. The DKE / UK 767.1 entitled "Low-frequency conducted disturbances" is authoritative in this respect. It was published by the DKE - German Commission for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies.
We offer accredited tests for this standard.
