| particular interface of an equipment which couples this equipment with the external electromagnetic environment (161-01-01) and through which the equipment is influenced by this environment
EXAMPLE Examples of ports of interest are shown in Figure 1. The enclosure port is the physical boundary of the apparatus (e.g. enclosure). The enclosure port provides for radiated and electrostatic discharge (161-01-22) energy transfer, whereas the other ports provide for conducted energy transfer.
