Fifty-Year Old EMI Testing Problems Solved!

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.
