The absorbing clamp method is suitable to determine the screening- or the coupling-attenuation of metallic communication cables in the frequency range of 30 MHz to 2 400 MHz, depending on the performance of the clamp. It is an alternative method to the the triaxial method of IEC 62153-4-4 or IEC 62153-4-9. Due to the undefined outer circuit of this absorbing clamp method, the test results obtained at different places and laboratories could vary by at least ± 6 dB.
