TBS Standards Catalogue

Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS) catalogue contains bibliographic information of over 1500 Tanzania standards (TZS), voluntary and compulsory.

They cover a number of areas such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, environment, agriculture and food, packaging, labeling, textile, building and construction, manufacturing, information and communication technologies, energy, quality management, conformity assessment and services, to name a few.

The records contain information on the title, TZS number, number of pages and scope. The standards are classified to the International Classification for Standards (ICS).

TZS 1376:2011 (1st Ed) 2011
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) – Limits for voltage change, voltage fluctuation and flickers in public low voltage supply system for equipment with rated current ≤ 75 A per phase and subject to conditional connection
Concerned with the emission of voltage changes, voltage fluctuations and flicker produced by equipment and impressed on the public low -voltage supply system. It specifies the limits of voltage changes produced by equipment tested under specified conditions. This Tanzania Standard is primarily applicable to electrical and electronic equipment having a rated input current from 16 A up to and including 75 A, which is intended to be connected to public lowvoltage distribution systems having nominal system voltages of 230V, line-to-neutral at 50 Hz, and which is subject to conditional connection. This Tanzania Standard is also applicable to equipment within the scope of TZS 1375 that does not meet the limits when tested or evaluated with reference impedance Zref and is therefore subject to conditional connection. Equipment which meets the requirements of TZS 1375 is excluded from this Tanzania Standard
