  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements cover discharge-path resistors that are intended to be connected between the antenna and the supply circuit of a radio-, video-, or television-type appliance. The resistors are intended to reduce the risk of fire or electric shock due to the buildup of a static electrical charge on the antenna connected to the appliance. These resistors are:

    a)    Rated 1/2 W or greater,

    b)    Rated 480 kΩ to 12 MΩ for use in a 50/60 Hz, 125 V or less circuit, and

    c)    Rated 960 kΩ to 12 MΩ for use in a 50/60 Hz, 126 – 250 V circuit.

    1.2 These requirements cover conductive-path resistors, of any rating, intended to be connected between live parts and accessible conductive parts of a radio-, video-, or television-type appliance.
