  • Associated product(s)


Does there exist EMC certificates for the Alpha distribution boards 8GK?



We have no EMC certificates for the Alpha distribution boards, because the EMC immunity depends on the installed devices.
The distribution boards themselves are no active parts and not sensitive to electromagnetic disturbing effects or generate themselves no electromagnetic disturbances.

No EMC immunity or emission tests are required on final assemblies, if the following conditions are fulfilled (EN 60439-1, point 7.10.2):

a) The incorporated devices and components are designed for the specified environment of in line with the relevant product or generic EMC standards.

b) The internal installation and wiring are carried out in accordance with the instructions of the device and component manufacturers (arrangement with regard to mutual influences, cable screening, earthing, etc.).
