Different Continuum products are approved to different approval standards and where are copies of these certificates held?
All Hardware products:
Standards listings to UL, BTL C-Tick, CE
Copies of the approval certificate or clarification on the different standards are required.
The Agency listings each controller is approved against are defined on the datasheet (See Lessons Learned #6110).
An example of the approvals for the bCX1 controllers are:
UL/CUL 916, UL 864 9th Edition, FCC CFR 47 Part 15, ICES-003, EN55022,
AS/NZS 3548, Class A, VCCI, EN61000-6-1, CE
All of the Regulatory Compliance documents including: UL, CUL, ISO, European CE Certificates, Australia/ New Zealand C-Tick Certificates and WSP Cert can be downloaded from The Exchange Download Center - Regulatory Compliance
Confirmation of BACnet testing can be seen at the BTL website:
European Standards -
Continuum has been tested to the following as part of the 89/336/EEC Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive and over the years the standards have changed.
Emissions -Continuum is tested against EN55022-Class A This is the emission standard for Information Technology equipment and another emission standard is the EN50081-1 but this is a generic emission level and less stringent than the IT standard that Continuum complies with.
Immunity - These standards have changed over the years, older controllers were tested against the International IEC1000-4 and we state the specific levels our controllers are tested against, then when it was released in 2000 we used the EN50082-1 standard which replaced the IEC standard in Europe. But newer controllers have now been tested against the EN61000-6-2 standard that have since replaced the other immunity standards.
There is also the EN60730-1 standard that Continuum is approved to, this defines the standard controls specifications it can perform.
These standards are required for us to apply the CE marking to our products.
