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 the 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
For some types of ports, such as ports intended to be used with highly balanced lines, additional test provisions may be established by product committee specifications.
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.
The disturbances produced by 400 Hz mains systems are not included in the scope of this standard. Actual interference due to these disturbance phenomena is relatively rare, except in industrial plants. Product committees should consider whether there is a justification for applying this standard in their product/product family standards (see also Clause 4). This test is not relevant for equipment ports intended to be connected to short cables, having a length of less than 20 m or less.
