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...

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...

Reverberation Chamber EMC Testing, A new Standard in several Sectors! Learn About it at EMC Live!

Reverberation Chamber EMC Testing, A new Standard in several Sectors!  Due to the rapid proliferation of electronic devices, concerns about electromagnetic interference have increased.   There is concern about the impact of electromagnetic interference on human health.  There is also concern about the effect of ElectroMagnetic Interference (EMI) on the "health" of crucial electronic equipment.  Critical electronic equipment that is required to function properly at all times.  EMI can cause components to become "distracted", and malfunction.  This type of interference...

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...

Infrared Detection, the Good and the Bad, and How to Avoid it!

 What is Infrared Detection? Infrared Detection is using heat as a method of finding someone or something.  The the infrared sensor/camera picks up the infrared heat signature of a person or object, which is be stronger or weaker than their surroundings.  This makes the human being or object "distinct" from its surroundings, essentially locating the human being or object. What is Good about IR Detection? One good thing about infrared detection is the use of this technology in finding people lost in...
Resistance Heating

What is Resistance Heating, What are its Applications?

What is Resistance Heating and What are its Applications? Resistance heating is heat generated by an electrical current passing through a resistor.  The heat comes from electrical energy being converted to thermal energy.  There are many applications for Resistance Heating:  Aeronautics, Automotive, Military, and Smart Clothing industries to name a few. How is Resistance Heating Used in the Aeronautics Industry? In the aeronautics industry, resistance heating is used for de-icing the wings of aircraft in inclement weather.  If the leading edges of...
