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...
EMC Compliance Testing-Prepare your Product!

EMC Compliance Test-Prepare your Product!

EMC Compliance Test-Prepare your Product!  Every electronic device must pass EMC Compliance tests in order to be marketed.  Preparing your product for this should be done from the start of the product's development until it is complete.  The best way to be ready for this test is to test the device early and often during product development.  Running an EMC Pre Compliance test at each crucial step allows discovery and correction of issues along the way.  Obviously, this stepwise process...

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!  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 Final Compliance Testing-be Prepared

Pre-Compliance EMC Testing-Practical!

Pre-Compliance EMC Testing-Practical!  No one likes to do the same job twice!  It's not efficient because it is a true waste of time.  Making sure the job's done right the first time is the best way to proceed.  This is especially true in electronic components.  Electric components are made up of multiple electronic devices, working together smoothly.  Everyone knows that every electronic device has to pass EMC compliance testing before it can go to market.  EMC is achieved when all...
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...
Electronic Vehicles Developmental Growing Pains

Electronic Vehicles- Developmental Growing Pains!

Electronic Vehicles-Developmental Growing Pains!  The benefits of Electronic Vehicles (EVs)are terrific, lower emissions lead the list of benefits.  Despite the benefits, consumers have some areas to be concerned with.  One of the most frequent owner concerns is range per charge.  This anxiety lies in the difficulty of finding a suitable charging station.  Currently, there is no "standard plug" configuration for charging EVs.  Conversely, the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) is fueled from pumps with a universal nozzle that fits all gas...
