EN 61000-4-4 Electrical Fast Transients

13 November, 2007

Testing for fast transient bursts is most important, not only for reliability but because fast transient immunity testing is called up by a number of other standards listed under European Directives. The test method is described in EN 61000-4-4 and this handbook explains the test procedures in simple terms, with lots of colourful diagrams. There is a section on full compliance testing with details of the test layout and test procedure. The handbook also contains guidance on on-site testing and how to prevent the test from causing nuisance interference. Furthermore there are explanations on how fast transients occur in real life, related EM phenomena and the problems that can be caused by sparking contact EM noise.
