It can be shown, that many flickermeters do not yield credible output readings although the manufacturers declare their compliance with the requirements of standard IEC 61000-4-15. Modifications or revisions to the standard and increasing the number of requirements, what is currently taking place, seem to be interim actions, whose results are dubious. On the other hand, it should be acknowledged that since over ten years the standardization of voltage fluctuations is based on the UIE flickermeter. The authorspsila idea is to treat a flickermeter - from its analogue input to the output of block 4 - as a black box, filled in by a designer accordingly to its decision, while maintaining the IN/OUT characteristics in conformity with those of the flickermeter regarded as a standard one.
