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!

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...

Develop and Test your Product with the Best!

Develop and Test your Product with the Best!  V Technical Textiles, Inc. has been involved in electronic product development and testing for years!  Initially, VTT was known for providing excellent RF shielding materials used in electronic devices.  Shielding materials block access of RF interference to electronic devices, allowing them to perform smoothly!  Additionally, they prevent the emission of RF interference from electronic devices.  VTT's Shielding materials are conductive metalized textiles, used in the automotive, aerospace, medical, and military industries.  Engineers...
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"...
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...
2022 EMC + SIPI

Chris Cook is attending the 2022 IEEE Symposium EMC + SIPI in Spokane, Washington

Chris Cook is attending the 2022 IEEE Symposium on EMC + SIPI.  The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers is the world's largest technical organization dedicated to the advancement of technology for the benefit of humanity.  This year's meeting will be held in Spokane, Washington August 1-5, 2022.  The symposium will be V Technical Textiles, Inc.'s first live meeting since the COVID 19 pandemic. Chris will attend the Tuesday Welcome Reception, renewing old acquaintances and making new ones.  Technical sessions,...
Corrosion

Rough Conditions Require Rugged Textiles!

Rough Conditions Require Rugged Textiles!  Conductive textiles are thin and lightweight.  Normally, these are excellent characteristics for many of their uses.  Metalized textiles are used in many electronic devices for shielding.  Electronic technology is becoming smaller all the time.  Shielding solutions must be flexible and adaptable to fit in tight spaces.  However, there are times that rugged characteristics are important.  Due to their fine structure, conductive textiles are usually not particularly durable.  The delicate nature of these shielding giants limits...
RF Shielded Enclosures-Perfect Testing Environments!

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...
