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, for more information see How do I get the part numbers and datasheets for Continuum products?.
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.
