3.7.8 Instrumentation System.
Generally inspect analog systems for conformance with the recommendations presented in Section
Inspect the grounding networks of digital data systems for conformance with the recommendations
of Section 188.8.131.52.
3.7.9. EMP Design.
Has the potential threat of an EMP event been considered in the design of the equipment? (Note
that most of the measures for EMP protection are also effective against lightning.) Have measures been taken
to reduce magnetic pickup (see Volume I, Chapter 10)?
Has extra emphasis been devoted to providing effective magnetic shields over potentially
susceptible devices and components?
Are components and devices having high degrees of immunity to EMP (and lightning) surges used
Are all incoming and outgoing conductors adequately protected with fast acting transient protective
3.7.10 Other Observations. As appropriate, note the existence of any personnel hazards due to deficiencies of
grounding, bonding, or shielding under Part VI of the Inspection Form. If appropriate to the intended use of the
equipment, determine what type of lightning surge protection, if any, is provided on signal, control, or power
lines associated with the equipment. Record all observations under Part VI of the Form.
