Specification for radio disturbance and immunity measuring apparatus and methods - Part 2-2: Methods of measurement of disturbances and immunity - Measurement of disturbance power (CISPR 16-2-2:2010); German version EN 55016-2-2:2011

Title (German)

Anforderungen an Geräte und Einrichtungen sowie Festlegung der Verfahren zur Messung der hochfrequenten Störaussendung (Funkstörungen) und Störfestigkeit - Teil 2-2: Verfahren zur Messung der hochfrequenten Störaussendung (Funkstörungen) und Störfestigkeit - Messung der Störleistung (CISPR 16-2-2:2010); Deutsche Fassung EN 55016-2-2:2011


This standard contains the German version of the European Standard EN 55016-2-2:2011 and is identical to International Standard CISPR 16-2-2:2010. It contains requirements for the measurement method for the radio disturbance power in the frequency range 30 MHz to 1 000 MHz. The measurement was carried out using the absorbing clamp for which the specifications are contained in CISPR 16-1-3, EN 55016-1-3 and DIN EN 55016-1-3 (VDE 0876-16-1-3). This measurement carried out with the absorbing clamp is a substitute for disturbance field strength measurements. This standard contains the required definitions and the types of disturbance to be measured are described. The connection and test arrangement of measuring equipment, the general measurement requirements and conditions, the test set-up, etcetera, are then described and the specifications for interpretation of measuring results are given. Measurements can be carried out on open-area test sites or, alternatively, in shielded rooms. Moreover, requirements for automated measurements are specified. With respect to the previous edition, specifications for measurement of the disturbance power by using FFT-based test instrumentation were added. Furthermore, definitions of the terms "measurement" and "test" have been introduced and for this purpose, reference has been made to the International Electrotechnical Vocabulary (IEV) and the International Vocabulary of Basic and General Terms in Metrology (VIM), respectively, and the definition of the term "weighting" has been replaced by a multi-part definition. Furthermore, the list of detector functions in 4.3 has been supplemented by the RMS average detector. When defining specifications regarding measurement of radio disturbances it is recommended to the Committees responsible for EMC products to consider the respective specifications of the standard series CISPR 16 or EN 55016 with respect to test instrumentation, measurement methods and measurement uncertainty. The responsible Committee is Subcommittee UK 767.4 "Geräte und Verfahren zum Messen von elektromagnetischen Aussendungen" ("Equipment and methods for measurement of electromagnetic transmissions") of the DKE (German Commission for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies) at DIN and VDE.
