1 Scope

The present document covers the assessment of NR Base Station (BS) and ancillary equipment in respect of

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).

The present document specifies the applicable test conditions, performance assessment and performance criteria for

base stations and associated ancillary equipment in the following categories:

- BS equipped with antenna connectors or TAB connectors which are possible to be terminated during EMC

testing, meeting the BS type 1-C and BS type 1-H RF requirements of TS 38.104 [2], with conformance

demonstrated by compliance to TS 38.141-1 [3].

- BS not equipped with antenna connectors nor TAB connectors, i.e. with antenna elements radiating during the

EMC testing, meeting the BS type 1-O and BS type 2-O RF requirements of TS 38.104 [2], with conformance

demonstrated by compliance to TS 38.141-2 [4].
The scope of the present document is twofold:

- Requirements, procedures and values of a BS with antenna connectors or TAB connectors,

- Requirements, procedures and values of a BS without antenna connectors, nor TAB connectors.

The environment classification used in the present document refers to the residential, commercial and light industrial

environment classification used in IEC 61000-6-1 [7] and IEC 61000-6-3 [8].

The EMC requirements have been selected to ensure an adequate level of compatibility for apparatus at residential,

commercial and light industrial environments. The levels, however, do not cover extreme cases which may occur in any

location but with low probability of occurrence.

3 Definitions, symbols and abbreviations
3.1 Definitions

For the purposes of the present document, the terms and definitions given in TR 21.905 [1] and the following apply. A

term defined in the present document takes precedence over the definition of the same term, if any, in TR 21.905 [1].

ancillary equipment: electrical or electronic equipment, that is intended to be used with a receiver or transmitter

NOTE: It is considered as an ancillary equipment if:

- the equipment is intended for use with a receiver or transmitter to provide additional operational and/or control

features to the radio equipment, (e.g. to extend control to another position or location); and

- the equipment cannot be used on a stand alone basis to provide user functions independently of a receiver or

transmitter; and

- the receiver or transmitter, to which it is connected, is capable of providing some intended operation such as

transmitting and/or receiving without the ancillary equipment (i.e. it is not a sub-unit of the main equipment

essential to the main equipment basic functions).

antenna port: for EMC purposes, port for connection of an antenna used for intentional transmission and/or reception

of radiated RF energy, equivalent to an RF antenna connector/TAB connector in TS 37.105 [25].

BS type 1-C: N
