Title Cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services - Part 2: Electromagnetic compatibility for equipment
Project Number 16462
Abstract/Scope 1.1 General Standards of EN 50083 and EN 60728 series deal with cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services including equipment, systems and installations - for headend-reception, processing and distribution of television and sound signals and their associated data signals and - for processing, interfacing and transmitting all kinds of signals for interactive services using all applicable transmission media. All kinds of networks like - CATV-networks - MATV-networks and SMATV-networks - individual receiving networks and all kinds of equipment, systems and installations installed in such networks, are within this scope. The extent of this standardisation work is from the antennas, special signal source inputs to the headend or other interface points to the network up to the terminal input. The standardisation of any user terminals (i.e. tuners, receivers, decoders, multimedia terminals etc.) as well as of any coaxial and optical cables and accessories thereof is excluded. 1.2 Specific scope of this part 2 This standard • applies to the radiation characteristics and immunity to electromagnetic disturbance of EM active equipment (active and passive equipment) for the reception, processing and distribution of television, sound and interactive multimedia signals as dealt with in the following parts of EN 50083 or EN 60728 series: - EN 60728-3 "Active wideband equipment for coaxial cable networks" - EN 50083-4 "Passive wideband equipment for coaxial cable networks" - EN 50083-5 "Headend equipment" - EN 60728-6 "Optical equipment"

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
