Regular

A rationale and recommendations for developing emission limits and immunity test levels are presented in this recommended practice. These limits and levels are representative of current practice and user needs. Emission limits are specified by national and international standards bodies. Emission limits for the most part are regulated and hence controlled, which is the case in the U.S. and Canada. Such regulatory limits take precedence, even if the limits are different from those considered in this document. For product immunity, while in some parts of the world this is regulated, for the U.S. and Canada, it is not regulated except for some types of safety equipment. In this way, adequate immunity is more a quality aspect of the product because it does not operate in its intended RF environment, the user would deem it of poor design and quality. The immunity test levels described in this document are representative of common levels applied internationally. However, severe environments (in which levels of electromagnetic disturbance are high) require the consideration of applying higher test levels. This consideration is described in this recommended practice. Finally, it should be noted that the entire recommended practice does not contain normative requirements, as such practices remain optional.

C63.12-1999 - American National Standard for Electromagnetic Compatibility Limits--Recommended Practice
March 28, 2000 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This recommended practice presents a rationale for developing limits and recommends sets of limits that are representative of current practice. These limits may be adjusted in particular applications as circumstances dictate.

C63.12-1987 - American National Standard for Electromagnetic Compatibility Limits - Recommended Practice
January 1, 1988 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This standard set forth, at least for reference purposes, a suggested set of EMC limits which may find general applications. As part of the development of limits, the following parameters should be considered: an understanding of the devices commonly used for the measurement of radio noise and their...
