Any electric or electronic equipment sold within the European Union has to comply with the EC Directive on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). To achieve compliance, the equipment must be tested for radiated/conducted emissions and immunity. A wide range of national and international testing methods and standards are in force such as the IEC 61000-40-20. However, standards in general lack of describing testing methods for equipment with cables. Since most devices and systems contain leads and cables; the current standards cannot be directly employed. In an effort to approach this crucial matter, we present the outcomes of measurements conducted on an EUT (metal box) with different cable bundle configurations, in conjunction with both, the correlation algorithm given in the standards and the repeatability concerns between different GTEM cells
