Electromagnetic field (EMF) of lighting equipments exporting to European Union was the newly added requirement in 2010; human exposure of electromagnetic radiation assessments needs to be done. The corresponding standard EN 62493:2010 which aims to access EMF and protect harm for human’s head and body will be mandatory by February, 2013.

Importance of Testing EMF on Lighting Products

  • Excessive electromagnetic field might cause damages to human body. For examples, dizziness, vomiting, childhood leukemia, adult malignant nature brain tumor, muscle atrophy Lateral Sclerosis, loss of reproductive functions, cancer, etc; radiation from lighting products might destroy hematopoietic system and affect thyroid.

EN 62493 Tests Performance:

  • Conducted Emission on AC (20 kHz to 30 MHz)
  • Radiated Electromagnetic Disturbance (100 KHz to 30 MHz)
  • Radiated Electromagnetic Disturbance (30 MHz to 300 MHz)
  • Electromagnetic fields (20 kHz to 10 MHz)

The above testing items and product scope are similar with the standard of EN55015, testing cost and time will be saved if clients apply certification of CE/EMC and EN62493 at the same time.
