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

Department of Defense Standard

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 The current revision of the standard MIL-STD-461G superseded MIL-STD-461F on 11th December 2015.

The emissions and susceptibility requirements are split into four sections each one designated with the relevant coding system:

CE - Conducted Emissions

RE - Radiated Emissions

CS - Conducted Susceptibility

RS - Radiated Susceptibility

 

The table below is a breakdown of these requirements and how they apply to Ground Army: 

Reliable COTS DC-DC converters

XP Power's COTS DC-DC converters comply with the susceptibility and emissions requirements within the standard when used in conjunction with our application-specific range of filters. These are already deployed in operational duties globally.

Size and weight are at a premium in Land Army applications so our solutions are light and minimise board area combining EMI filtering and surge immunity within one compact unit.

 Example below: 

 

Each filter module combines common mode and differential mode stages to comply with the emissions requirements for MIL-STD-461G, like CE102
