Modular and Configurable Solutions for Vetronics Applications meet MIL-STD-461G

This blog discusses XP Power's modular and configurable solutions for compliance with MIL-STD-461 for Vetronics applications and how this relates to the Ground Army requirements within that standard.

The US Department of Defense Standard MIL-STD-461 is an EMI standard for the control of emissions and susceptibility characteristics of electronic equipment. The current revision of the standard MIL-STD-461G superseded MIL-STD-461F on 11th December 2015.


MIL-STD-1275 Compliance for power systems made easy.

The US Department of Defense Standard MIL-STD 1275 is an immunity standard that defines a series of test conditions to be applied to the input of a 28V electrical power system within a military vehicle.  These include spikes, surges, operating voltages and ripple


DEF-STAN 61-5 Part 6, Issue 6, Compliance Made Easy

Posted on 21 Feb 2017
In February 2009, the UK Ministry of Defence published issue 6 of Defence Standard 61-5 part 6 to cover 12 and 24V systems. This issue 6 version has a major change when compared to issue 5 which had been originally published in 1990. The main difference is to define how electrical equipment survives when subjected to the DIT08.B load dump. Load dump occurs when a heavily loaded electrical system exhibits a loose battery terminal, which can be caused by the shock of the military vehicle traversing over rough terrain and the resulting voltage transient presented onto the electrical system by the poor connection defined in the commercial vehicle standard ISO 7637-2.

Active surge protection filter module complies with DEF STAN 61-5 issue 6 load dump requirement
