Title Electromagnetic compatibility - Emission measurements in fully anechoic chambers
Project Number 17074
Abstract/Scope This Technical Report applies to emission measurements of radiated electromagnetic fields in Fully Anechoic Rooms (FAR) in the frequency range from 30 MHz to 18 GHz. This Technical Report covers the frequency range from 30 MHz – 1 000 MHz. The frequency range above 1 GHz is under consideration, due to the absence of practical experience. This Technical Report describes the validation procedure for the Fully Anechoic Room for radiated emission tests and the procedures to carry out the tests (e.g. test set up, EUT position, cable layout and termination, test procedures). Recommendations for the relation between FAR emission limits and common Open Area Test Site (OATS) emission limits given in standards such as EN 55011 and EN 55022 are given in Annex B. This FAR emission method may be chosen by product committees as an alternative method to emission measurement on an Open Area Test Site (OATS) as described in CISPR 16 series. In such cases, the product committee should also define the appropriate limits. Typical measurement uncertainty values for FARs and OATS are given in Annex C.

Normative reference (6)  

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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