The present document covers the assessment of NR Base Station (BS) in respect of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).
It specifies the applicable test conditions, performance assessment and performance criteria for base stations and associated ancillary equipment in the following categories:
NR BS equipped with antenna connectors or TAB connectors which are possible to be terminated during EMC testing, meeting the conducted Range 1 RF requirements of TS 38.104, with conformance demonstrated by compliance to TS 38.141‑1.
NR BS not equipped with antenna connectors nor TAB connectors, i.e. with antenna elements radiating during the EMC testing, meeting the radiated Range 1 and Range 2 RF requirements of TS 38.104, with conformance demonstrated by compliance to TS 38.141‑2.
The scope of the present document is twofold:
Requirement, procedures and values of an NR BS with antenna connectors or TAB connectors,
Requirements, procedures and values of an NR 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 and IEC 61000-6-3.
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.
