IEC 61000-4-3:2020 Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) – Part 4-3: Testing and measurement techniques – Radiated, radio-frequency electromagnetic field immunity test.
This part of 1EC 61000 is applicable to the immunity requirements of electrical and electronic equipment to radiated electromagnetic energy. It establishes test levels and the required test procedures.
The object of this document is to establish a common reference ftor evaluating the immunity of electrical and electronic equipment when subjected to radiated. radio-frequency electromagnetic fields. The test method documented in this part of IEC 61000 describes a consistent method to assess the immunity of an equipment or system against RF electromagnetic fields from RF sources not in close proximity to the EUT. The test environment is specifed in Clause 6.
NOTE 1. As described in LEC Guide 107, this is a basic EMC publication for use by product commitees of the IEC.
As also stated in Guide 107. he IEC product commi6es are responslale ftor Getermining whether this immunity test
Standard should be epplid or not, and ppled, hey are responsible ftor detemining the ppopriae tet levils and performance criteria. TC 77 and itse sub-commitees are prepared to c0-operate with product commitees in the evalualion of the value of parioular immunity lesis for their producis
NOTE2 lmrunity tsting against RF sources in clese proimity to the EUT is defind in lEC 1000-39 Particular considerations are devoted to the protection against radio- frequency emis sions from digital radlotelephones and other RF emitting devices.
NOTE3 Test methods are deftined in this part ftor evaluating the efect that electromagnetic radiation has on the oqvpment concemed. The simulation and mossurement of olectromegnelic radiabon 16 not adequatoly oxact for quaniative determinetion of elect8- The test methods defined in this Ba8ie document have the primary objeclive of eslablishing an adequate reprouc blty of lesing configuration and repealabilily of test results at warious test facilis.
This document is an independent test method. It Is not possible to use other test methods as substitutes for claiming complance with this document.
