EU directives set requirements to which norms equipment of any kind have
to satisfy before being released for the EU market. Therefore all
electric equipment must satisfy e.g. the EMC-directive.
This EU-directive refers to European product norms EN-55015 (electromagnetic
interference from a luminaire) and EN-61547 (immunity of a luminaire
against electromagnetic interference from outside).
The importance of EMC control
compatibility is the branch of electrical sciences which studies the
unintentional generation, propagation and reception of electromagnetic
energy with reference to the unwanted effects (Electromagnetic
interference, or EMI) that such energy may induce.
The EMC-directive aims to
ensure that equipment items or systems will not interfere with or
prevent each other's correct operation through spurious emission and
absorption of electromagnetic interference.
Testing in a shielded chamber
Inside our shielded chamber we can perform all tests necessary for
luminaires. We can test products against radiated and conducted
emission, electrostatic discharge ESD, burst and surge on power lines
and immunity to high frequency electro-magnetic fields.
