RF Shielded Enclosures-Ideal EMC Testing Environments!

RF Shielded Enclosures-Ideal EMC Testing Environments!

RF Shielded Enclosures-Ideal EMC Testing Environments!  We all know that all electronic devices have to pass Final EMC Compliance testing before they are marketed.  RF Shielded Enclosures provide ideal conditions for performing Pre-Compliance EMC testing.   Compliance testing determines whether or not the device is emitting RF and Electromagnetic radiation that will affect the performance of devices in their shared workspace, or if the device is sensitive to other electromagnetic phenomena.  RF Shielded Enclosures create a low ambient RF environment as...
EMC Testing-try Pre-Compliance Testing!

EMC Testing-try Pre-Compliance Testing!

EMC Testing-try Pre-Compliance Testing!  As the new year approaches, new product introduction will increase.  Every new electronic device must pass a Final EMC Compliance test.  You shudder to think of scheduling testing, long waits for appointments, long trips to the testing center, and big testing fees!  It's great when you pass the test the first time but having to retake the test is a nightmare!  This year, make a change in your "usual cycle"!  Try Pre-Compliance Testing in your own...
Testing Situations-Prepare for them!

Testing Situations-Prepare for them!

Testing Situations-Prepare for them!  You remember it from school, from the first day of class, you knew that there would be a "Final Test".  The "Final" would determine whether you would move on to the next level, or whether you would have to repeat the test!  Preparation for the final was very important.  A parallel situation to the "Final Test" exists when developing a new electronic product for marketing.  Commencing with development is the first step for the device toward...
EMC-Devices Functioning Optimally Together!

EMC-Devices Functioning Optimally Together!

EMC-Devices Functioning Optimally Together!  Electromagnetic Compatibility means devices can function at their best in a shared environment.  All electronic devices create electromagnetic fields while they are working.  Some components of these RF emissions can potentially interfere with the optimal function of devices.  In the United States, the FCC has regulatory authority over many kinds of consumer electronics.  FCC Standards control what emissions devices can make, and a standard for how much RFI a device must tolerate while operating.  Additionally, there...
EMC Standards are Necessary

Standards are necessary for EMC!

Standards are necessary for EMC!  Electronic devices working in a shared electronic environment must be able to perform optimally in that environment.  In order for this to happen, the shared environment must meet certain "standards".  Imagine expecting a human being able to live in an environment without oxygen.  It's NOT going to happen!  Similarly, electronic devices require an environment with limited range of RFI frequency emissions.  RFI above a certain "standard level" will hinder a device's performance.  A "standard limit"...
Shielding RF/EMI

Shielding RF/EMI allows Electronic Teamwork!

Shielding RF/EMI allows Electronic Teamwork!  Electronic components consist of several electronic devices working together toward a common result.  All electronic devices create electromagnetic fields.  Electromagnetic fields can be the source of "noise" that can affect the function of another nearby device or devices in the component.  Noise produces a "toxic effect" on the shared electronic environment of the component, making it function below its capability.  In order for the devices to be "compatible" with each other, there must be standards...
2022 EMC + SIPI

Chris Cook is ready for IEEE EMC Symposium + SIPI in Spokane!

Chris Cook is ready for IEEE EMC Symposium + SIPI in Spokane!  Chris will meet with our Northwest sales representative, Dean Shipman, while he's in the neighborhood. Monday evening, before the Symposium begins, Chris will attend a customer appreciation meeting sponsored by our partner, ETS Lindgren.  Tuesday, Chris will meet with our Northwest Sales Representative, Dean Shipman of Syntek.  Chris will spend the rest of the day walking the Symposium.  The IEEE EMC Symposium +SIPI is the major annual meeting...

EMC-Devices functioning in Harmony!

EMC-Devices functioning in Harmony!  All electronic devices produce electromagnetic emissions.  Electromagnetic emissions of every electronic device have to meet applicable standards.  Emissions outside of the standards interfere with function of other devices in the component.  Devices must be in compliance with EMC standards in order to be marketed.  EMC Compliance testing insures a harmonious shared electronic environment for optimal device performance. EMC-Devices functioning in Harmony!  EMC Compliance testing consists of three tests: Emissions- The Device Under Testing (DUT) is tested to...

EMC Compliance Testing-“Prep” your Product!

EMC Compliance Testing-"Prep" your Product!  EMC Compliance testing is often the final obstacle to product marketing.  It's important to prepare your product for this test!  Best Practice for Final EMC Compliance Testing is Pre-Compliance EMC Testing!  Pre-Compliance Testing at your own facility beginning early in development is great preparation!  This allows identification and mitigation of problems during every step of development.  Backtracking to find problems is time consuming and frustrating!  Products developed in this way will likely pass Final Compliance...

Your own Test Lab-an RF Shielded Enclosure!

Your own Test Lab-an RF Shielded Enclosure!  Best practice suggests Pre-Compliance EMC Testing early and often in product development.  The problem is the time and money wasted accomplishing offsite testing!  The lead time for testing slows things down as well.  The ability to perform testing in your own facility would be great.  Many companies have faced this problem over the years.   VTT has designed and produced portable testing enclosures for many years.  These RF Shielded Enclosures provide the low ambient...
