EMC Testing

VTT Helps during "Testing Times"!

EMC Concerns-Try Pre-Compliance Testing!

EMC Concerns-Try Pre-Compliance Testing!  I am a worrier, I worry about any type of test that I am facing.  It can be my physical, a licensing examination, you name it, I'll worry about it!  My mother always felt that proper preparation was far better than worrying about the test.  I agree with her approach in preparing for tests.  She maintains that constant preparation leading up to the test is the best way to approach a test.  I know from my...

Pre-Compliance Testing- a Real Benefit!

Pre-Compliance Testing-a Real Benefit!  Preparation is the way to go when it comes to testing in general.  This is particularly true in the case of electronic products.  Starting with the prototype, it is smart to build Electromagnetic Compliance (EMC) into any new product.  It is best practice to incorporate basic EMC into the design of the product and run Pre-Compliance EMC testing starting early in development.  Waiting until your product is completely built to start testing it is a folly. ...
Pre-Compliance EMC Testing- Beneficial!

Best Practice-EMC Testing During Development!

Best Practice-EMC Testing During Development.  It's true, the best way to develop an EMC compliant product is to build compliance into it from day one!  The EMC standards are specific and defined by regional, international, national, agencies.  They are defined by the type of product and the location(s) where the product will be used.  For each industry, there are different standards that apply to the amount of EMI/RFI a device can emit.  ALL electrical devices produce electromagnetic fields that interfere...

Team Shieldex attends EMV Stuttgart 2023!

Team Shieldex attends EMV Stuttgart 2023!  Shawn DeCook Chief Operations Officer of V Technical Textiles, Inc. will join Robert Erichsen, owner of Statex Produktions- und Vertriebs GmbH and "Team Shieldex" at EMV Stuttgart 2023, March 28-March 30.  EMV Stuttgart is Europe's Premier exhibition for electromagnetic compatibility.  Statex GmbH and V Technical Textiles, Inc. have an excellent business relationship.  Statex manufactures Shieldex® metalized textiles and various products manufactured using them. VTT markets the metalized textiles and manufactures numerous EMC testing products,...
The Versatile uses of RF Shielded Curtains!

RF Shielding Curtains-many uses!

RF Shielding Curtains-many uses!  RF Shielding Curtains made with Conductive Metalized Textiles, block the passage or RFI/EMI.  This characteristic makes them useful in many ways!  One of the major uses of RF Shielding Curtains is in warehouses, where they make keeping accurate inventory records easy.  Areas of the warehouse can be "sectioned off" from other areas, eliminating "RF Crosstalk" between adjacent areas during scanning.    In a similar fashion, curtained separation of hospital telemetry areas enables wireless collection of vital...
Security and Efficiency-RF Shielded Curtains!

RF Shielded Enclosures-Test with Confidence!

RF Shielded Enclosures-Test with Confidence!  Pre-Compliance EMC Testing requires a low ambient environment for accurate testing.  The only Source of interference in the testing enclosure should be the Device Under Testing (DUT).  RF Shielded enclosures are based on the Faraday Cage Principle which states that electromagnetic fields approach the outside of the enclosure, they will not pass through the walls of the enclosure.  The interior of the testing enclosure should have no ambient RF radiation higher than the level that...
Pre-Compliance EMC Testing-Benefits Abound!

Pre-Compliance EMC Testing-Find out Early!

Pre-Compliance EMC Testing-Find out Early!  I always like to find out what I'm in for as soon as possible!  I always love "practicing" for a test that is coming my way.  They help me to sharpen my skills in the areas where I am underprepared.  Final EMC Compliance tests must be passed prior to marketing electronic devices.  Pre-Compliance EMC Testing is a very practical way to prepare for the Final EMC Compliance test.  Testing a product early and often during...

RF Interference-Controlled by Shielding!

RF Interference-Controlled by Shielding!  RF Interference (RFI) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) can wreak havoc with the function of electronic devices.  In our wireless world, the amount of RF radiation present in our environment is always increasing.  Add the man-made RF radiation to the natural forms of RFI and EMI such as snow, rain and electrical storms, solar flares, and the auroras and there's a whole lot of radiation going on around here!  Three things cause an interference problem, a "noise...

Product Development-use Pre-Compliance Testing!

Product Development-use Pre-Compliance Testing!  Product development in the electronics industry is very difficult!  EMC Standards must be met depending on product type and its function.  When the product is complete, it needs to pass the Final EMC Compliance Testing at a registered facility in order to be marketed.  This exam is all-inclusive, touching on the entire device.  It's best practice to perform Pre-Compliance testing on the device during development.  This stepwise practice eliminates the need for back tracking to find...
