This part of IEC 62153 determines the screening effectiveness of a cable shield by applying a well-defined current and voltage to the screen of the cable and measuring the induced voltage in order to determine the surface transfer impedance. This test measures only the magnetic component of the transfer impedance.
NOTE The measurement of the electrostatic component (the capacitance coupling impedance) is described in IEC 62153-4-8 2.
The triaxial method of measurement is in general suitable in the frequency range up to 30 MHz for a 1 m sample length and up to 100 MHz for a 0,3 m sample length, which corresponds to an electrical length less than about 1/6 of the wavelength in the sample.
