A.1 Instructions for Compliance with the EU Directives
The EU Directives are issued to standardize different national regulations of the EU Member States and to facilitate free
movement of the equipment, whose safety is ensured, in the EU territory.
Since 1996, compliance with the EMC Directive that is one of the EU Directives has been legally required. Since 1997,
compliance with the Low Voltage Directive, another EU Directive, has been also legally required. When a manufacturer
confirms its equipment to be compliant with the EMC Directive and the Low Voltage Directive, the manufacturer must
declare the conformity and affix the CE marking.

A.1.1 EMC Directive
We declare that this inverter conforms with the EMC Directive and affix the CE marking on the inverter.
EMC Directive: 2004/108/EC
Standard(s): EN61800-3:2004 (Second environment / PDS Category "C3")
Environment including residential buildings. Includes buildings directly connected without a transformer to the low
voltage power supply network which supplies power to residential buildings.
Environment including all buildings except buildings directly connected without a transformer to the low voltage
power supply network which supplies power to residential buildings.
Install the inverter (and if necessary optional radio interference suppression filters) and perform wiring according to the
The inverter is equipped with a built-in EMC filter. Set the EMC filter valid (initial setting).
Connect the inverter to an earthed power supply.
Install a motor and a control cable according to the EMC Installation Guidelines (BCN-A21041-204).
The maximum cable length (shielded cable) between the frequency inverter and motor required to maintain the
limiting values of the second environment is 5m when using the internal radio interference suppression filter.
Make sure that the frequency inverter, if required (optional external) radio interference suppression filters and the
motor are installed in compliance with generally recognised EMC installation regulations. It is not permitted to start
up the device unless the EMC guidelines are complied with.
