1.1 This European Standard specifies the immunity performance criteria and test levels for apparatus used in lifts, escalators and moving walks which are intended to be permanently installed in buildings including the basic safety requirements in regard to their electromagnetic environment. These levels represent essential EMC requirements.
The standard refers to EM conditions as existing in residential, office and industrial buildings.
This standard addresses commonly known EMC related hazards and hazardous situations relevant to lifts, escalators and moving walks when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the lift installer or escalator and/or moving walk manufacturer.
- performance criteria and test levels for apparatus/assembly of apparatus used in general function circuits do not cover situations with an extremely low probability of occurrence;
- this standard does not apply to other apparatus already proven to be in conformity to the EMC Directive, and not related to the safety of the lift, escalator or moving walk, such as lighting apparatus, communication apparatus, etc.
1.2 This European Standard does not apply to electromagnetic environments such as:
- radio-transmitter stations,
- railways and metros,
- heavy industrial plant,
- electricity power station,
which need additional investigations.
1.3 This standard is not applicable to apparatus which were manufactured before the date of its publication as EN 12016.
