  § 15.107   Conducted limits.

   (a) Except for Class A digital devices, for equipment that is designed
   to be connected to the public utility (AC) power line, the radio
   frequency voltage that is conducted back onto the AC power line on any
   frequency or frequencies within the band 150 kHz to 30 MHz shall not
   exceed the limits in the following table, as measured using a 50 μH/50
   ohms line impedance stabilization network (LISN). Compliance with the
   provisions of this paragraph shall be based on the measurement of the
   radio frequency voltage between each power line and ground at the power
   terminal. The lower limit applies at the band edges.
   Frequency of emission (MHz) Conducted limit (dBμV)
                               Quasi-peak  Average
   0.15-0.5                    66 to 56*  56 to 46*
   0.5-5                       56         46
   5-30                        60         50

   *Decreases with the logarithm of the frequency.

   (b) For a Class A digital device that is designed to be connected to
   the public utility (AC) power line, the radio frequency voltage that is
   conducted back onto the AC power line on any frequency or frequencies
   within the band 150 kHz to 30 MHz shall not exceed the limits in the
   following table, as measured using a 50 μH/50 ohms LISN. Compliance
   with the provisions of this paragraph shall be based on the measurement
   of the radio frequency voltage between each power line and ground at
   the power terminal. The lower limit applies at the boundary between the
   frequency ranges.
   Frequency of emission (MHz) Conducted limit (dBμV)
                               Quasi-peak  Average
   0.15-0.5                    79         66
   0.5-30                      73         60

   (c) The limits shown in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section shall
   not apply to carrier current systems operating as unintentional
   radiators on frequencies below 30 MHz. In lieu thereof, these carrier
   current systems shall be subject to the following standards:

   (1) For carrier current systems containing their fundamental emission
   within the frequency band 535-1705 kHz and intended to be received
   using a standard AM broadcast receiver: no limit on conducted
   emissions.

   (2) For all other carrier current systems: 1000 μV within the frequency
   band 535-1705 kHz, as measured using a 50 μH/50 ohms LISN.

   (3) Carrier current systems operating below 30 MHz are also subject to
   the radiated emission limits in § 15.109(e).

   (d) Measurements to demonstrate compliance with the conducted limits
   are not required for devices which only employ battery power for
   operation and which do not operate from the AC power lines or contain
   provisions for operation while connected to the AC power lines. Devices
   that include, or make provision for, the use of battery chargers which
   permit operating while charging, AC adaptors or battery eliminators or
   that connect to the AC power lines indirectly, obtaining their power
   through another device which is connected to the AC power lines, shall
   be tested to demonstrate compliance with the conducted limits.
