ETSI - PRETS 300 673
Radio Equipment and Systems (RES); ElectroMagnetic Compatability (EMC) Standard for 4/6 GHz and 11/12/14 GHz Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Equipment and 11/12/13/ 14 GHz Satellite News Gathering (SNG) Transportable Earth Station (TES) Equipment
|Publication Date:||1 January 1996|
This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) covers the assessment of Very Small Aperture Terminals (VSAT) and Satellite News Gathering (SNG) Transportable Earth Stations (TESs) communication equipment in respect of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). Technical specifications related to the antenna port and emissions from the enclosure port of the equipment, for frequencies above 1 000 MHz, are not included in this ETS. Such specific technical specifications are found in the relevant product standards for the effective use of the radio spectrum.
This ETS specifies the applicable EMC tests, the limits, and the minimum performance criteria for the following Earth Stations (ES).
- VSAT equipment as defined in ETS 300 159 , or ETS 300 157 , oepning in the frequency bands 11/12/14 GHz;
- VSAT equipment as defined in ETS 300 332 , or ETS 300 333 . operating in the frequency bands 4/6 GHz;
- SNG TES equipment as defined in ETS 300 327 , operating in the frequency bands 11/12/13/14 GHz.
The environment classification used in this ETS refers to the environment classification used in the Generic Standards EN 50081-1  and EN 50082-1 .
The EMC requirements have been selected to ensure an adequate level of compatibility for apparatus in residential, commercial and light industrial environments. The levels, however, do not cover extreme cases which may occur in any location but with a low probability of occurrence.
This ETS may not cover those cases where a potential source of interference which is producing individually repeated transient phenomena or a continuous phenomenon is present, e.g. a radar or broadcast site in the near vicinity. In such a case it may be necessary to use special protection applied to either the source of interference, or the interfered part or both.
Compliance of VSAT equipment to the requirements of this ETS does not imply compliance to any requirement related to the use of the equipment (e.g. licensing requirements).
