International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference CLC/TS 50217:2005
Title Guide for in situ measurements - In situ measurement of disturbance emission
Project Number 4743
Abstract/Scope This guide describes analysis methods of disturbance emission to be applied in situ for identification of the disturbance source and resolution of complaint. Where applicable, the methods rely on already published documents either in CENELEC or in IEC. It is not intended to be used for type testing or any kind of conformity assessment. Dealing with effects on living matter is excluded from this document. The frequency range of interest is from d.c. to 400 GHz. This document applies for analysing an interference complaint. It provides method for identification and characterisation in situ of the source(s) of interference. It proposes procedures to discriminate different kind of sources. Reference in situ measurement distances are defined. It allows comparison of the results and of technical characteristics of the interfered equipment with existing relevant standards. The result of the comparison is intended to help in the resolution of the complaint. It is meant for verifying the emissions from fixed installations whatever equipment they contain, and whatever have been the type tests of these equipment. It may be used to describe the coupling path for interference between the victim and the source, and to compare the measurement results with the limits from the adequate standard, at a specific location and in a given frequency band.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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