IEC-61000-4-3:2020 4th Edition Containing Multiple Signal Test Option Has Been Published

The new IEC 61000-4-3:2020 4th Edition has been published.

The latest edition includes the following updates:
  • a description of how to test using multiple test signals;
  • addition of information regarding EUT and cable layout;
  • removal of the upper frequency limitation to take into account new services;
  • further specification of how to characterize the uniform field area
  • added clarification for checking the power amplifier linearity in the field generation chain.

The adoption of multiple signal testing in IEC 61000-4-3 Edition 4 solidifies its credibility in EMC testing. AR’s Multi-Tone test system, MT06002, has established itself as the leader in multiple signal radiated and conducted immunity testing.

With AR’s proprietary Multi-Tone software, users are offered numerous test and calibration routines utilizing multiple tone methodology, to meet these standards. This mature software, as with AR’s emcware, has a very intuitive workflow and wide range of features, translating into a true time savings for the lab.

The MT06002 offers testing from 10 kHz - 6 GHz, with up to 1 GHz instantaneous bandwidth, greatly expanding an EMC laboratory’s opportunities beyond IEC 61000-4-3 to include conducted immunity and allows for more tones to be used during testing.
