NPFC - MIL-STD-461
REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CONTROL OF ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE CHARACTERISTICS OF SUBSYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT
|Publication Date:||11 January 1993|
This standard establishes the design requirements for the control of the electromagnetic emission and susceptibility characteristics of electronic, electrical, and electromechanical equipment and subsystems designed or procured for use by activities and agencies of the Department of Defense. Such equipment and subsystems may be used independently or as an integral part of other subsystems or systems. Data item requirements are also included.
The applicability of the emission and susceptibility requirements is dependent upon the types of equipment or subsystems and their intended installations as specified herein.
The emissions and susceptibility requirements in this standard and corresponding test methods of MIL-STD-462 are designated in accordance with an alpha-numeric coding system. Each method is identified by a two letter combination followed by a three digit number. The number is for reference purposes only. The meaning of the individual letters are as follows:
C = Conducted
R = Radiated
E = Emission
S = Susceptibility
a. Conducted emissions tests are designated by "CE---."
b. Radiated emissions tests are designated by "RE---."
c. Conducted susceptibility tests are designated by "CS---."
d. Radiated susceptibility test are designated by "RS---."
e. "---" = numerical order of test from 101 to 199.
This standard is intended for use in the acquisition cycle of equipment and subsystems to specify the electromagnetic emission and susceptibility requirements for the control of EMI.
