The immunity standards are intended to establish a basic level of protection for
products that are susceptible to electromagnetic noise. Currently these standards are on a
voluntary basis in both Australia and New Zealand, but manufacturers exporting to Europe
need to abide by certain irnmunity standards. A comparison between the Australian and New
Zealand standards and their international or European equivalents is given in table 2.
THE POWER OF THE EUROPEAN IMMUNITY REQUIREMENTS
The strength of the European immunity standards is the fact that they cover almost all
the spectral/energy environments a device is likely to encounter.
This suite of standards makes the product virtually trouble-free once installed.
