Recommended Insertion Loss Test Methods for EMI Power Line Filters(STABILIZED Aug 2012)
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 move 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.
Rationale: The document is still a valid standard which may benefit from a future update. The basic technology described in the document is still valid. The subcommittee designated to update the document is not currently active, so stabilization of the document is the best approach until such time as a committee can be established to open a WIP.
