IEC 60118-13:2011

Title
Electroacoustics - Hearing aids - Part 13: Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
Abstract
IEC 60118-13:2011 in principle covers all relevant EMC phenomena for hearing aids. Hearing aid immunity to high frequency electromagnetic fields originating from digital wireless devices operating in the frequency ranges 0,8 GHz to 0,96 GHz and 1,4 GHz to 2,48 GHz is currently identified as the only relevant EMC phenomenon regarding hearing aids. Future editions of this part of IEC 60118 may add tests for other frequency bands, as they come into more common use. IEC 61000-4-3 is the basis for relevant EMC tests to be conducted on hearing aids. Measurement methods and acceptance levels are described in this part of IEC 60118. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2004 and constitutes a technical revision. It introduces a new set of requirements for use of hearing aids with mobile phones.
