Boeing D6-16050-5 Electromagnetic Interference Control Requirements for Composite Airplanes

Boeing D6-16050-5 contains the electromagnetic compatibility requirements of electrical/electronic equipment selected for installation on Boeing commercial transport airplanes that are primarily constructed of composite material. Transient, audio frequency, and radio frequency limits of emissions and susceptibility are specified for the equipment. Test procedures, typical test set-ups, approved measuring equipment and test provisions are included along with designer’s notes to assist in proper interpretation of design and test requirements. EMC Test Procedure and Test Report data requirements are also specified.

Electromagnetic compatibility requires that each airplane system perform its intended function in the airplane electromagnetic environment, and that the operation of a given system does not degrade the performance of other airplane systems. Airplane electromagnetic compatibility requires appropriate airplane structural design, equipment installation, wiring installation, and equipment qualification. The emission limits and susceptibility thresholds contained in Boeing D6-16050-5 are a means of assuring that the design objectives will be achieved when compliant equipment is installed on an airplane.

Boeing D6-16050-5 contains the electromagnetic compatibility qualification and documentation requirements for electrical/electronic equipment that will be installed on Boeing commercial transport airplanes that are primarily comprised of composite materials. Transient, audio frequency and radio frequency limits of emissions and susceptibility are specified for the equipment. Test procedures, typical test set-ups, approved measuring equipment and test provisions are included along with designer’s notes to assist in proper interpretation of design and test requirements. EMC Assurance Plan, Test Procedure and Test Report data requirements are also specified.

Each supplier has full responsibility for the EMC design, construction and testing of furnished equipment. This effort shall be in accordance with the applicable system requirements documentation and this document. This shall include the responsibility to design into all circuitry and associated packaging proven and effective techniques for control of emissions and susceptibilities.

Although the test procedures and methods detailed in Boeing D6-16050-5 are standardized, each supplier has the responsibility of demonstrating that the performance of each unit is tested and exercised with the hardware, interfaces, software, and modes of operation representative of the actual in-service installation. Test equipment and load simulation units shall be designed for RF immunity and susceptibility- free monitoring to ensure accuracy of measurements.
