CS114 has specific dBuA requirements based upon Figure CS114-1 which go as high as high as 209dBuA (Curve #5). This test levels typically require an external amplifier, like the Teseq CBA 400M-260, designed for higher test levels. The exact wattage of the amplifier, either built in or external, will determine which test levels and frequency ranges can be tested.
We offer rentals of both complete test systems including injection accessory kits, test systems, and amplifiers, as well as for individual components that of the setup ideal for supplementing existing capabilities.
MIL-STD-461 CS114 applies to all interconnecting cables, including power cables, from 10 kHz to 200 MHz. For electrical and electronic equipment used on ships or submarines, an common mode limit of 77 dBμA is applied from 4 kHz to 1 MHz. CS114 is designed to test the ability of an EUT to handle RF signals onto the EUT associated cabling. It requires measurement receivers, current injection probes, current probes, calibration fixture, directional couplers, signal generators, plotter, attenuators, coaxial loads, and power amplifiers. This standard places specific requires on how the data is to be presented in the data presentation(220.127.116.11).
The test equipment for bulk cable injection (BCI) testing within the frequency range of 10kHz to 200MHz we offer include amplifiers, bulk current injection probes, calibration fixtures, signal generators, attenuators and many others. Our test equipment provides full turnkey test systems ensuring compliance to this military based standard. We offer both the Teseq and EM Test solutions in both modular and complete solutions. The easiest way to separate the required equipment is by amplifier, signal generator, and test accessories. All of our test solutions come with ISO 17025 accredited calibrations.
EM Test Continuous Wave Simulator
The EM Test CWS 500N2 test system provides a built in signal generator (9kHz-1GHz), directional coupler, and power amplifier (100 Watt). This test system provides a single box solution with easy to use software allowing for calibration data points to be easily recorded. Additional possible test equipment for this solution is listed below.
