Why does PAT test with Altivar fail?

VSDs are fitted with EMC filters,(see fig 1) and, often, there is a significant current flow (around 6 mA) through the filters to earth, under normal conditions. This can be indicated as a failure during an earth leakage current measurement performed as part of a portable appliance test, although it is a normal characteristic" of the equipment.
