The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has released IEC 62153-4-6:2017 RLV for metallic cables and other passive components test methods, specifically “Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) Surface transfer impedance – line injection method”. This redline version of the standard identifies changes from previous editions and is now available on the IEC webstore.
Description: “IEC 62153-4-6:2017 determines the screening effectiveness of a shielded metallic communication cable by applying a well-defined current and voltage to the screen of the cable and measuring the induced voltage in order to determine the surface transfer impedance.
Measurements in the frequency range from a few kHz up to and above 1 GHz can be made with the use of normal high frequency instrumentation.”
