What are the European standards relating to variable-speed drives?

We’re often asked by our clients about EU standards relating directly to variable-speed drives (VSDs), so we’ve put together this quick guide. Non-compliance is a criminal offence, so it’s important to be in the know when it comes to this legislation. The main standards are:

EN 61800-3 relating to EMC Directive

Adjustable speed electrical power drive systems – Part 3: EMC requirements and specific test methods.

EN 61800-5-1 relating to Low Voltage Directive

Adjustable speed electrical power drive systems – Part 5-1: Safety requirements – Electrical, thermal and energy.

EN 61800-5-2 relating to Machinery Directive

Adjustable speed electrical power drive systems – Part 5-2: Safety requirements – Functional safety.
