This part of CISPR 14 specifies the electromagnetic immunity requirements in the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz that apply to appliances, electric tools and similar apparatus as specified below, whether powered by AC or DC (including a battery).
This document specifies immunity requirements for continuous and transient electromagnetic disturbances, both conducted and radiated.
Unless otherwise specified, this document is applicable to all equipment in the scope of CISPR
• household appliances or similar apparatus;
NOTE 1 Examples are equipment used:
– for typical housekeeping functions in the household environment, which includes the dwelling and its associated buildings, the garden, etc.;
– for typical housekeeping functions in shops, offices, commercial and other similar working environments;
– on farms;
– by clients in hotels and other residential type environments;
– for induction cooking or air conditioning, either in residential or commercial environments.
• electric tools;
NOTE 2 Examples of electric tools include electric motor-operated or electromagnetically driven hand-held tools, transportable tools, lawn and garden machinery.
• similar apparatus;
NOTE 3 Examples are:
– external power controllers using semiconductor devices;
– motor-driven electro-medical equipment;
– electric/electronic toys;
– personal care and beauty care appliances;
– automatic goods-dispensing machines;
– entertainment machines;
– cine or slide projectors;
– battery chargers and external power supplies for use with products under the scope of this document;
– electric fence energisers.
Included in the scope of this document are also microwave ovens for domestic use or catering.
Equipment which incorporate radio transmit/receive functions are included in the scope of this document.
NOTE 4 For handling cases where equipment under the scope of this document is combined with transmit and/or receive radio functions, see Clause 8.
Excluded from the scope of this document are:
– equipment for which all electromagnetic immunity requirements are explicitly formulated in other CISPR or IEC standards;
NOTE 5 Examples are:
• luminaires, including portable luminaires for children, discharge lamps, LED lamps and other lighting devices under the scope of IEC 61547 (but see 8.7);
• multimedia equipment under the scope of CISPR 35;
• mains communication devices, as well as baby surveillance systems;
• arc welding equipment.
– equipment intended to be part of the fixed electrical installation of buildings (e.g. fuses, circuit breakers, cables and switches);
– medical electrical equipment, including those in the scope of CISPR 14-1;
– equipment used only in industrial environment;
– equipment intended to be used exclusively in locations where special electromagnetic conditions exist (e.g. high electromagnetic fields nearby broadcast transmitting stations or high energy pulses nearby power generation stations);
– equipment intended to be used exclusively on a vehicle, ship, boat or aircraft;
– the effects of electromagnetic phenomena relating to the safety of apparatus (see IEC 60335 series);
Also excluded from the scope of this document is AC single-phase equipment with a rated voltage higher than 250 V between phase and neutral and AC multi-phase equipment with rated voltage higher than 480 V.
Abnormal operation of the equipment, such as simulated faults in the electric circuitry for testing purposes, is not taken into consideration.
