RS101 is a test standard under the radiated susceptibility subcategory of MIL-STD-461. This standard applies to equipment and subsystem enclosures, including electrical cable interfaces, within the frequency range of 30 Hz to 100 kHz. Electromagnetic coupling through antennas does not apply to this standard. Equipment that is to be installed on Navy aircraft only needs to comply with RS101 if it is equipped with ASW capability. When referring to Army ground equipment, RS101 only applies to vehicles with minesweeping or mine detection capability. This standard only applies to submarines when the equipment and subsystems are operating under 100 kHz. The purpose of RS101 is to establish the ability of the equipment under test (EUT) to withstand radiated magnetic fields.
Test equipment needed for RS101 requirements:
Diameter: 12 cm
Number of turns: 20
Wire: No. 12 insulated copper
Magnetic flux density: 9.5x107 pT/ampere of applied current at a distance of 5 cm from the plane of the loop.
Diameter: 4 cm
Number of turns: 51
Wire: 7-41 Litz wire (7 Strand, No. 41 AWG)
Correction Factor: See manufacturer’s data for factors to convert measurement receiver readings to decibels above one picotesla (dBpT).
Key applications of the CWS 500N3 are in the automotive and aerospace area. Various international standards and MIL requirements call for magnetic field tests in the low frequency range. Apart from this the automotive industry requires conducted immunity tests with superposed sinusoidal signals on the DC supply voltage (ripple noise). For both applications the CWS 500N3 is the perfect equipment including everything in a single box, necessary for these tests. The CWS 500N3 meets requirements of SAE J1113-2, ISO 11452-8, DO 160D/E Section 18 and MIL-STD-461 D/E/F/G CS101, CS109 and RS101.
The ITS 6006 consist of an integrated RF signal generator, RF switch and EUT monitoring interfaces. The unit is designed for various radiated EMC applications in the 80 MHz to 6 GHz frequency range. In addition to the generator, the system includes the AM and PM modulators necessary for EMC testing. The second generation, called ITS 6006B, includes 3 freely configurable pulse modulators (1 µs to 200 s) for radar pulse profiles as required e.g. by Ford FMC1278 or VW TL81000. The RF signal can be switched to one of four outputs, where up to four power amplifiers can be connected directly. Two RF switches are supplied for combining four amplifier into two antenna paths.
