IEC Standards: IEC 61000-4-16: Testing and Measurement Techniques – Test for Immunity to Conducted, Common Mode Disturbances in the Frequency Range 0 Hz to 150 kHz

IEC 61000-4-16 relates to the immunity requirements and test methods for electrical and electronic equipment to conducted, common mode disturbances in the range d.c. to 150 kHz. The scope of IEC 61000-4-16 is to establish a common and reproducible basis for testing electrical and electronic equipment with the application of common mode disturbances to power supply, control, signal and communication ports.

IEC 61000-4-16 defines:

  • Test voltage and current waveform
  • Range of test levels
  • Test equipment
  • Test set-up
  • Test procedures
IEC 61000-4-16 is intended to demonstrate the immunity of electrical and electronic equipment when subjected to conducted, common mode disturbances such as those originating from power line currents and return leakage currents in the earthing/grounding system.
