||This part of CISPR 16 is designated a basic standard, which specifies the characteristics and performance of equipment for the measurement of radio disturbance voltages, currents and fields in the frequency range 9 kHz to 18 GHz. In addition, requirements are specified for specialized equipment for discontinuous disturbance measurements. The requirements include the measurement of broadband and narrowband types of radio disturbance.
The receiver types covered include the following:
a) the quasi-peak measuring receiver,
b) the peak measuring receiver,
c) the average measuring receiver,
d)the r.m.s. measuring receiver.
In addition there are specifications for spectrum analyzers, scanning receivers and audio-frequency voltmeters.
The requirements of this publication shall be complied with at all frequencies and for all levels of radio disturbance voltages, currents, power or field strengths within the CISPR indicating range of the measuring equipment.
CISPR 16-1 has been reorganised into 5 parts, to accommodate growth and easier maintenance. This first edition of CISPR 16-1-1, together with CISPR 16-1-2, CISPR 16-1-3, CISPR 16-1-4 and CISPR 16-1-5, cancels and replaces the second edition of CISPR 16-1, published in 1999, amendment 1 (2002) and amendment 2 (2003). It contains the relevant clauses of CISPR 16-1 without technical changes.
