This paper deals with the electromagnetic susceptibility of measurement systems when subjected to interference generated by short-range, low-power wireless transmitters. A ZigBee transmitter was used as an interfering source operating close to the instrumentation under test. The results of numerous tests prove that different kinds of measurement instrumentation can be affected by the wireless module interference. Significant metro- logical performance decay was observed for both frequency- and time-domain measurements carried out by instrumentation whose bandwidth includes the ZigBee frequency operating range.

Abstract

This paper deals with the electromagnetic susceptibility of measurement systems when subjected to interference generated by short-range, low-power wireless transmitters. A ZigBee transmitter was used as an interfering source operating close to the instrumentation under test. The results of numerous tests prove that different kinds of measurement instrumentation can be affected by the wireless module interference. Significant metro- logical performance decay was observed for both frequency- and time-domain measurements carried out by instrumentation whose bandwidth includes the ZigBee frequency operating range.
