Description / Abstract:

The limits in this International Standard are designed to provide protection for broadcast receivers in the frequency range of 30 MHz to 1 000 MHz when used in the residential environment. Compliance with this standard may not provide adequate protection for new types of radio transmissions or receivers used in the residential environment nearer than 10 m to the vehicle or device.

NOTE 1 Experience has shown that compliance with this standard may provide satisfactory protection for receivers of other types of transmissions when used in the residential environment, including radio transmissions in frequency ranges other than that specified.

This standard applies to the emission of broadband and narrowband electromagnetic energy which may cause interference to radio reception and which is emitted from

a) vehicles propelled by an internal combustion engine, electrical means or both (see 3.1);

b) boats propelled by an internal combustion engine, electrical means or both (see 3.2). Boats are to be tested in the same manner as vehicles except where they have unique characteristics as explicitly stated in this standard;

c) devices equipped with internal combustion engines (see 3.3).

This standard includes limits and test methods for both broadband and narrowband emissions.

This standard does not apply to aircraft, traction systems (railway, tramway and trolley bus), or to incomplete vehicles.

NOTE 2 Protection of receivers used on board the same vehicle as the disturbance source(s) are covered by CISPR 25.

The measurement of electromagnetic disturbances while the vehicle is connected to power mains for charging is not covered in this standard. The user is referred to appropriate IEC and CISPR standards which define measurement techniques and limits for this condition.
