RF radiation field
- This test applies an amplitude-modulated signal (1 kHz – 80%) to the equipment, in the 80 MHz – 2.7 GHz frequency range.
- RF electromagnetic radiation energy fields are intentionally produced by TV stations, AM/FM radio stations, telephone base stations, citizens band radio equipment, mobile phones, etc.
- Other types of equipment that unintentionally produce RF electromagnetic radiation energy include inductive load switches, arc welding equipment, fluorescent lights, etc.
⇒ Levels: Depends on the standard: from 1 V/m to 30 V/m.
⇒ Criterion: During the test, the equipment must be able to operate without any degradation or loss of function (criterion A, usually).
