General Testing Information

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(5.12.3.5).
