||From January 2001
all electrical equipment sold within the EEC must to comply with
legislation relating to the harmonics content of the current waveform.
This legislation is described in the European standard EN61000-3-2.
Certain categories of equipment which can present a large and variable
load must also comply with a further standard EN61000-3-3
which relates to the measurement of voltage fluctuations or flicker.
Compliance with these standards is mandatory.
Measurements must be made on all relevant categories of equipment before
it can be CE marked.
These measurements would normally be made by a Test House. The
cost of compliance testing can be considerable, particularly where
several products are to be tested or where design changes are needed to
TTi can offer a low cost solution for self-certified compliance quality
measurement to both EN61000-3-2 and EN61000-3-3. The HA1600
Harmonics and Flicker Analyser.
The HA1600 is a fast, easy to use mains and harmonics analyser and
flickermeter with a large and high resolution graphical display, capable of continuous real-time analysis.
It can be used as a general purpose mains analyser or as a dedicated harmonics and flicker analyser for compliance quality measurements.
