4.1.4. Bypass capacitors
NOTE 3 mentions bypass capacitors needed for testing "panels". Should this not read "equipment", or was it intentionally restricted to "panels"?

Proposal: 4.1.4. NOTE 3 to read: "... Suitable bypass capacitors are very likely to be needed on equipment that will be subjected to such testing."

Dear Martin,

Thank you for your comments.

This note is intentionally restricted to panels as the section 4.1.4 refers to panels. Our intent is to point out that if these panels are included in any testing of a whole system, that these capacitors might be required.
