EMC Testing / EMI Testing
EMC (Electro Magnetic Compatibility) testing exists to ensure that your electronic or electrical device doesn’t emit a large amount of electromagnetic interference (known as radiated and conducted emissions) and that your device continues to function as intended in the presence of several electromagnetic phenomena.
The terms of Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) are often used interchangeably when referring to the regulatory testing of electronic components and consumer goods. Any electronic device generates some amount of electromagnetic radiation.
To ensure EMC/EMI compliance with regulations, we have employed a specialized testing facility, to perform EMC pre-compliance and compliance testing
A specific EMC testing routine is determined by the nature of the device being tested, its intended application and the regulatory requirements governing its use.
Electromagnetic phenomena that may be simulated through EMC testing include:
- Magnetic fields, such as those radiating from electrical wires
- Voltage drops due to a brownout or other power interruption
- Electromagnetic surges due to a lightning strike
- Conducted and radiated electromagnetic noise
- Electrostatic discharges associated with static electricity
- Fast transients caused by electrical switches, motors, and relays, fluorescent lamp ballasts, for example.
