INTRODUCTION to Amendment 1

The goal of this amendment is to extent IEC 62153-4-9 such that also the coupling attenuation

of unscreened single or multiple balanced pairs or unscreened quads can be measured with

the triaxial test procedure.

Further complement is the extension of the usable frequency range down to frequencies

below 9 kHz to measure the low frequency coupling attenuation of screened and unscreened

balanced pairs or quads.

Add, after Annex C, the following new Annex D:
Annex D
(normative)
Measuring the screening effectiveness
of unscreened single or multiple balanced pairs
D.1 General

IEC 62153-4-9 describes the measurement of coupling attenuation of balanced pairs with the

triaxial test set-up. Due to the short circuit between the screen of the cable under test (CUT)

and the triaxial tube at the near end, the method described in IEC 62153-4-9 applies only to

screened balanced cables.

This annex describes the procedures for measuring coupling attenuation of unscreened single

or multiple balanced pairs. Furthermore, the screening effectiveness of screened and

unscreened balanced pairs at frequencies down to 9 kHz is described.
D.2 Background

Figure D.1 shows the basic triaxial test set-up with a short circuit between the screen of the

cable under test (CUT) and the tube at the near end.

Due to the energy which couples through the screen from the inner system (the CUT) into the

outer system (the tube), a wave is travelling in both directions in the outer system. The short

circuit at the near end causes a total reflection so that the complete energy that couples from

the CUT into the outer system is travelling to the receiver and is measured as superimposed

curve. The measured maximum values, respectively the envelope curve, is the screening

attenuation according to IEC 62153-4-4, see also IEC TS 62153-4-1.

Figure D.1 – Basic triaxial tube procedure according to IEC 62153-4-3 / IEC 62153-4-4

The same principle applies to screened balanced cables, where also the interaction between

differential mode and common mode shall be considered (see Figures 1 and 3).
D.3 Triaxial set-up for unscreened balanced pairs
D.3.1 Principle

Basically, it should be distinguished between single unscreened pairs and multiple

unscreened pairs. In case of multiple unscreened pairs, the EMC behavior, respectively test

results, depends on the treatment of the remaining pairs, e.g. grounded or not.

Figure D.2 – Screening effectiveness of unscreened balanced pairs, principle set-up

Figure D.2 shows the principle triaxial set-up for balanced unscreened single or multiple

balanced pairs. The signal is fed into the tube in the differential mode via two parallel semi

rigid coaxial cables of equal length with the screens connected to the tube. Due to the

conversion from the differential mode into the common
