Define voltage and frequency to perform tests 61010-1 and 61326-1 for CE certification

#1
To certificate our products to european community we need to perform tests about IEC 61010-1 and IEC 61326-1. Our equipments can setting to 220VAC 60Hz, 220VAC 50Hz, 380VAC 60Hz and 380VAC 60Hz. We have some doubt:

First, Do we need perform the test in all voltages and frequencys?
Second, Do we need perform the test in 230VAC 50Hz?

Thanks all.

For Europe, EMC testing is usually done at 230VAC/50Hz but it's not a strict requirement. You don't need to do all of the voltages and frequencies. Test labs may or may not have 380V available. The voltage dips and interrupts test (IEC 61000-4-11) would be done at the highest and lowest rated voltages, if the rated voltage range is more than 20%. It sounds like you have two ranges rather than a single range, so I'm not sure if that would apply.

I don't know about IEC 61010-1.

380V 50 Hz is provided in some European Countries (https://www.trade.gov/mas/ian/ECW/all.html )
Just as 220V and 240V are all covered by 230V +6%/-10%, 3-ph systems from 380V to 415V are covered by EU 400V nominal

For safety testing it is common to perform heating tests and upper and lower voltages within each voltage input range, and it looks as though you have 2 ranges

Thanks Charlie.

What about the frequency? Can we perform the tests at 60Hz or do we need to perform at both frequencies (50 and 60Hz)? We would like to perform these tests only at 60Hz. We can do it?
