Coaxial Test Procedure to Measure the RF Shielding Characteristics of EMI Gasket Materials

2017-02-09
CURRENT
ARP1705C
The purpose of this procedure is to establish a technique for reliably and repeatedly measuring the RF shielding characteristics of EMI gasket materials and EMI gaskets against various joint surfaces. The procedure is also used to test the reliability of the gasketed joint combinations after being subjected to hostile environments.

CURRENT
AIR6236A
This AIR provides guidance to the EMI test facility on how to check performance of the following types of EMI test equipment: Current probe Line Impedance Stabilization Network (LISN) Directional coupler Attenuator Cable loss Low noise preamplifier Rod antenna base Passive antennas All performance checks can be performed without software. A computer may be required to generate an electronic or hard copy of data. This is not to say that custom software might not be helpful; just that the procedures documented herein specifically eschew the necessity of automated operation.

Stripline Test Method to Characterize the Shielding Effectiveness of Conductive EMI Gaskets up to 40 GHz

2016-02-19
CURRENT
ARP6248
The purpose of this procedure is to establish a technique for reliably and repeatedly measuring the RF shielding characteristics of EMI conductive gasket materials and EMI conductive gaskets. Depending on the materials used for the construction of the measuring setup, the EMI conductive gaskets can be characterized against various joint surfaces. This standard will directly provide shielding effectiveness values up to 40 GHz, and will also be applicable for small samples of conductive EMI gaskets.

Recommended Insertion Loss Test Methods for EMI Power Line Filters

2012-08-10
CURRENT
ARP4244A
This document presents standard methods to evaluate the common mode and differential mode insertion loss of passive electromagnetic interference power line filters from 10 kHz through 10 GHz. Insertion loss test methods for both quality assurance and performance prediction purposes are described. The performance prediction tests are selected to more closely approximate operating impedances. They are not intended to be inclusive or to represent worst case conditions. However, the methodology of this document can be used to determine the performance in an arbitrary impedance circuit.

Aerospace Systems Electrical Bonding and Grounding for Electromagnetic Compatibility and Safety

2012-08-10
CURRENT
ARP1870A
This document establishes the minimum requirements for the electrical bonding and grounding of electric, avionic, armament, communication, and electronic equipment installations for aeronautical and aerospace applications. The bonding and grounding requirements specified herein are to ensure that an adequate low resistance return path for electric, avionic, armament, communication and electronic equipment is achieved which can withstand operating conditions and corrosion. This is essential for the reduction of coupling of electromagnetic fields into or out of the equipment as well as for providing electrical stability to control the currents and/or voltages caused by static charges and discharges and for suppressing the hazardous effects thereof.

Cabling Guidelines for Electromagnetic Compatibility

1998-12-01
CURRENT
AIR1394A
These cable practice recommendations tend toward design guidance rather than standardization. EMC achievement tests can be standardized, but the means for achievement should not be constrained. The material can best be described as an essay on cabling, and the theme is that a cable is just a part of a complete circuit, the interconnect circuit. Cable EMC performance is thus determined largely by circuit design; it is unrealistic to expect cabling techniques to compensate for improper impedance, symmetry or waveform in the circuit.

Corrosion Control and Electrical Conductivity in Enclosure Design

1998-09-01
CURRENT
ARP1481A
Corrosion control is always of concern to the designer of electronic enclosures. The use of EMI gaskets to provide shielding often creates requirements that are in conflict with ideal corrosion control. This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) presents a compatibility table (see Figure 1) which has as its objective a listing of metallic couples that are compatible from a corrosion aspect and which still maintain a low contact impedance.
