Testing Devices for EMC

Testing Electronic Devices for EMC, Try a Portable RF Shielded Enclosure!

Testing Electronic Devices for EMC, try a Portable RF Shielded Enclosure! Testing Electronic Devices for EMC, try a Portable RF Shielded Enclosure! All electronic devices emit electromagnetic waves.  This is a fact of  life in the electronics industry.  Unfortunately, these electromagnetic waves can interfere with other electrical devices.  To avoid interfering with other components, emission standards have been developed.  In order for an electronic component to be sold, the component must conform with these standards.  It is smart business to...
Conductive Textiles

Conductive Textiles, What are they and what are their Uses?

Conductive Textiles, What are they and What are their Uses? A conductive textile is a fabric, thread, or fastener that conducts electricity.  Conductive textiles consist of a less conductive fiber or fabric that is made conductive by being coated with electrically conductive elements.  These elements are often Silver, Copper, Nickel, and titanium.  These elements are plated, embedded, or coated onto the less conductive substrate.  These substrates typically include polyester and Nylon.  These fabrics, threads, and yarns are highly conductive and...
RFI

Proper RFI Management is Crucial, Wireless, the Internet of Things, and 5G depend on It!

Proper RFI Management is Crucial, Wireless, the Internet of Things (IOT) and 5G depend on it! Proper RFI Management is Crucial, Wireless, the IoT, and 5G depend on it.  All three of the above-mentioned systems operate in an RFI filled environment.  Due to the increase of the number of devices, there is more RFI in our environment than ever before.  Every electronic device emits RFI, the trick is to control it.  Think of the environment as an office full workers. ...

RF Shielded Testing Enclosures, We have the right one for You!

RF Shielded Testing Enclosures-what are they? RF Shielded EMC Testing Enclosures are based on the theory of the "Faraday Cage", pioneered by Michael Faraday in 1836.  A Faraday Cage is made of a conductive metal mesh or solid conductive metal plates that will not allow external electric fields to enter the area that the cage encloses.  Our RF Shielded EMC Testing Enclosures are made of metalized conductive textiles, making them easy to assemble, lightweight and portable. RF Shielded Testing Enclosures-what are...

RF Emissions and RF Susceptibility, EMC Test Devices Early and Often in Development!

RF Emissions and RF Susceptibility, EMC test devices early and often in development! RF Emissions- every electronic device emits RF waves during function.  Some of these RF waves are acceptable in the environment.  Some of them can adversely affect the function of other nearby devices.  The RF Emissions should be checked early and often during development.  This process prevents the need to change the device design completely late in the game. RF Susceptibility- If RF waves in the area...

EMC Test Enclosures make Pre-Compliance Testing Easy!

EMC Test Enclosures make Pre-Compliance testing easy!  Manufacturers of electronic components know the importance of pre-compliance testing.  Their components must function smoothly together with many other components simultaneously.  The emission testing checks for RF emissions from the component.  There are strict standards for the level of RF emissions that components are allowed to produce.  Combine this with susceptibility testing, which is done to confirm that the component will be able function flawlessly in the presence of ambient RF levels...

Reverberation Chambers Two Styles, One Great EMC Testing Method!

Reverberation Chambers, Two Styles, one Great EMC Testing Method!  EMC Testing is typically done in metal lined testing chambers.  The metal blocks any exterior RF noise from entering the testing chamber, interfering with the EMC testing that you are performing.  It's just the Device Under Testing (DUT) and the applied frequencies that are used in the test.  The problem is, the metal that keeps the "ambient noise out" allows reflection of the testing frequencies off the inside walls of...

RF Shielded Testing Enclosures, Rental is an Option!

RF Shielded Testing Enclosures, why buy one you can rent it?  Shielded Testing Enclosures are an ideal solution for Pre-Compliance Testing.  Accomplishing this testing at your site has several advantages.  There is the monetary advantage, saving travel and testing fees are two areas of saving money.  Saving precious time instead of waiting for appointments at busy testing centers when you can perform them in your own location on your own schedule represents another important savings area. Many industries are required...
RF Shielded EMC Testing Enclosure

Portable RF Shielded Enclosures are Excellent Testing Options!

Portable RF Shielded Enclosures are Excellent EMC Testing Options!  These Enclosures are used in Pre-Compliance testing of new electronic equipment in the developmental stage.  They provide the perfect ambient-free environment necessary for this type of testing due to the "Faraday Cage Effect".  The metalized conductive textiles used in making these enclosures block unwanted electromagnetic fields and waves inside of the enclosure.  The Device Under Testing (DUT) can then be operated in a "clean RF environment" to determine if normal...

RF Testing in Space? How will that be Done?

RF Testing in Space?  That seems like a strange question.  Certainly, RF Testing in space is not being done to any great extent at this time. RF testing is done on earth for the spacecrafts and their components to make sure that their delicate electrical systems work smoothly together in space. RF testing in space seems like it could be a necessary thing to consider within the next decade.  NASA's Artemis Program will return humans to the Moon in 2024. ...
