The designer's role is to create the design and specifications for the ITS, but the actual implementation and compliance with EMC standards are usually handled by other parties.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    EM Fields can be both desirable and undesirable, depending on whether the EM fields interfere with the operation of the network or electronic devices.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    EM fields, or electromagnetic fields, can have both positive and negative effects depending on their interaction with the network or electronic devices. If the EM fields interfere with the operation of the network or devices, they can be undesirable as they may cause disruptions or malfunctions. However, if the EM fields are properly managed and do not interfere with the operation, they can be desirable as they can be used for various purposes such as wireless communication or power transmission. Therefore, the statement that EM fields can be both desirable and undesirable is true.

    EMI problems for telecommunications systems can only occure under three simultaneous conditions, which are:

    • A.

      A coupling path between the interfering source and the susceptible unit.

    • B.

      Unbalanced signaling or poor dielectric strength

    • C.

      An interfering source

    • D.

      A suseptible unit

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A coupling path between the interfering source and the susceptible unit.
    C. An interfering source
    D. A suseptible unit
    Explanation
    EMI problems in telecommunications systems can only occur when there is a coupling path between the interfering source and the susceptible unit. This means that there must be a physical or electromagnetic connection between the source of interference and the device that is susceptible to the interference. Additionally, there must be an interfering source present, which could be any device or component that emits electromagnetic radiation. Finally, there must be a susceptible unit, which refers to any device or component that is sensitive to electromagnetic interference. All three of these conditions must be met for EMI problems to occur in telecommunications systems.

    • A.

      Unbalanced EM fields of the electrical power system

    • B.

      Balanced DM field of the electrical power system

    • C.

      Coupling between the electrical power and telecommunications systems

    • D.

      The susceptibility of the telecommunications systems

    Correct Answer
    B. Balanced DM field of the electrical power system
    Explanation
    The major components that do not belong when dealing with electromagnetically induced interference are the "Balanced DM field of the electrical power system." Electromagnetic interference refers to the disturbance caused by electromagnetic radiation on electronic devices or systems. Unbalanced EM fields of the electrical power system, coupling between the electrical power and telecommunications systems, and the susceptibility of the telecommunications systems are all relevant factors in understanding and addressing this interference. However, the concept of a "Balanced DM field" is not commonly associated with electromagnetically induced interference.

    The recommendation is to use an overall longitudinal balance of _____ or greater at low frequencies.

    • A.

      30db

    • B.

      20db

    • C.

      50db

    • D.

      60db

    Correct Answer
    D. 60db
    Explanation
    The recommendation is to use an overall longitudinal balance of 60db or greater at low frequencies. This means that the balance between the left and right channels should be 60db or more, ensuring that the sound is evenly distributed and there is no imbalance between the two channels. This is particularly important at low frequencies, as any imbalance can result in a distorted or uneven sound output. Therefore, a balance of 60db or greater is recommended to ensure optimal audio quality.

    • E.

      50 db

    Correct Answer
    C. 40 db
    Explanation
    Adding a CM choke in series with the transformer improves the CM rejection of the magnetics in balanced twisted pair cabling. A higher CMRR (Common-Mode Rejection Ratio) is desirable for high-quality magnetics to effectively reject common-mode noise over the operating frequency range of interest. Therefore, a minimum CMRR of 40 dB is desirable.

    The potential difference between the two grounds shall be no more that ____ V root mean square to avoid problems with conductive ground loops?

    • A.

      3.0 V

    • B.

      2.0 V

    • C.

      4.0 V

    • D.

      1.0 V

    Correct Answer
    D. 1.0 V
    Explanation
    To avoid problems with conductive ground loops, the potential difference between the two grounds should be kept as low as possible. A potential difference of 1.0 V root mean square is recommended to prevent any interference or issues caused by ground loops. This ensures that there is minimal voltage difference between the two grounds, reducing the chances of current flow and potential noise or signal distortion.
