Symmetrical data lines

As devices become increasingly interactive, practically everything has a communication interface of some sort. RS485 and Ethernet© have become industry standards allowing fast data transfer over long distances. Testing can be performed on active systems using Ethernet© up to 1 Gb/s communication rate. Balanced or twisted pair communication has the advantage that it is not susceptible to disturbance signals, even over long distances. CE testing using the combination wave/surge and ringwave impulses is required for products having this interface type.

Application Standards

  • IEC 61000-4-5
  • IEC 61000-4-12
  • IEC 61000-4-18

Test Types

  • Combination Wave
  • 100 kHz Ringwave
  • 100kHz and 1MHz Damped Oscillatory Waves
