MIL-STD-461G CS116: Conducted Susceptibility, Damped Sinusoidal Transients, Cables and Power Leads, 10 kHz to 100 MHz.


This test procedure is used to verify the ability of the EUT to withstand damped sinusoidal transients coupled onto EUT associated cables and power leads. This requirement is applicable to all interconnecting cables, including power cables, and individual high side power leads. Power returns and neutrals need not be tested individually. For submarine applications, this requirement is applicable only to cables and leads that exit the pressure hull.


Required Test Equipment:


• Damped sinusoid transient generator, ≤ 100 ohm output impedance
Current injection probe
Oscilloscope, 50 ohm input impedance
• Calibration fixture: Coaxial transmission line with 50 ohm characteristic impedance, coaxial connections on both ends,    and space for an injection probe around the center conductor
Current probe
• Waveform recording device
• Attenuators, 50 ohm
• Measurement receivers
• Coaxial loads, 50 ohm
