Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) Part 4-25: Testing and measurement techniques – HEMP immunity test methods for equipment and systems
|Publication Date:||1 May 2012|

This part of IEC 61000 describes the immunity test levels and related test methods for electrical and electronic equipment and systems exposed to high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) environments. It defines ranges of immunity test levels and establishes test procedures. Specifications for test equipment and instrumentation test set-up, test procedures, pass/fail criteria, and test documentation requirements are also defined by this standard. These tests are intended to demonstrate the immunity of electrical and electronic equipment when subjected to HEMP radiated and conducted electromagnetic disturbances. For radiated disturbance immunity tests, specifications are defined in this standard both for small test facilities and large HEMP simulators.
This part of IEC 61000 defines specifications for laboratory immunity tests. On-site tests performed on equipment in the final installation to verify immunity are also specified. These verification tests use the same specifications as laboratory tests, except for the climatic environmental specifications.
The objective of this part of IEC 61000 is to establish a common and reproducible basis for evaluating the performance of electrical and electronic equipment, when subjected to HEMP radiated environments and the associated conducted transients on power, antenna, and input/output (I/O) signal and control lines.
