Standard Update | EN 61000-3-3 Voltage Flicker Test Standard Updated Again
The main changes of the two versions are described below.
EN 61000-3-3: 2013+A2: 2021
The main change is the revision or addition of the test conditions for specific equipment in Annex A:
|Micro-wave oven||Coffee and tea makers|
|Refrigerator and Freezer||Portable Electric Heating Fan|
|Hair dryers and similar protective equipment||Electric fans and similar equipment|
|Air conditioners, dehumidifiers, heat pumps and commercial refrigeration equipment|
If the above products need to update the report to the new standard version, the test needs to be rescheduled.
EN 61000-3-3: 2013+A2:2021+AC: 2022
It is an errata to the sixth paragraph in "Coffee and Tea Machines":
Extract [ Plt shall not be evaluated ] from the sixth paragraph to form a separate seventh paragraph, clarifying that none of the devices described in A.16 need to evaluate Plt.

The (dow) time given in the A2 version of the standard is 2024-11-05, which is not yet OJ.
Note: The OJ Harmonized Standard for Voltage Flicker is currently EN 61000-3-3:2013
