Limits and Methods of Measurement of Radio Disturbance Characteristics of Components and Modules for the Protection of Receivers Used On Board Vehicles
This SAE Standard contains limits1 and procedures for the measurement of radio disturbances in the frequency range of 150 kHz to 1000 MHz. The standard applies to any electronic/electrical component intended for use in vehicles and large devices. Refer to International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Publications for details of frequency allocations. The limits are intended to provide protection for receivers installed in a vehicle from disturbances produced by components/modules in the same vehicle.2 The receiver types to be protected are: sound and television receivers3, land mobile radio, radio telephone, amateur and citizens' radio. For the purpose of this document, a vehicle is a machine which is self-propelled. Vehicles include (but are not limited to) passenger cars, trucks, agricultural tractors, and snowmobiles. The limits in this document are recommended and subject to modification as agreed between the vehicle manufacturer and the component supplier.
