Investigating a Significant Discrepancy in Modern Bulk Cable Injection Test Methods
In the 1990s, bulk cable injection (BCI) techniques were still relatively new and controversial. BCI in support of ... Read More...
There have been inherent problems with audio frequency conducted susceptibility tests since their inception. These are: ensuring that the injected signal drops across the test sample; monitoring the signal that is developed across the test sample, both from the point-of-view of isolating the instrumentation so it doesn’t ground the input power return and, more problematically, monitoring injected ripple riding on an ac bus potential. These issues are resolved using a novel but inexpensive transducer described herein.
This is the last in a three part review of the newly released MIL-STD-464C, “Electromagnetic Environmental Effects Requirements for Systems.” The following is a summary of Parts 1 and 2 of the review, then on to new material.
