EMC Tests

Good RF Shielding Equals EMC!

Good RF Shielding equals EMC!  All electronic devices produce RF Noise or Electromagnetic Fields.  These Electromagnetic emissions can cause less than optimal device performance.  There are "acceptable standards" of RF emissions allowed to be present in the component.   Some devices are "susceptible" to acceptable RF radiation.  Other devices may emit unacceptable amounts of RF radiation.  The RF radiation of one device can adversely affect the performance of the component.  That is why it is important to test devices early...
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 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...
Anti-Radiation Clothing

Top Five Reasons for Wearing Anti-Radiation Clothing!

You may have heard of Anti-Radiation Clothing... and the exposures that it deals with are certainly getting more prevalent.. This guide will help you understand what it is and why it is becoming increasingly necessary: 1. Protection from the "Natural Environment" Believe it or not, today's "Natural Environment" is more full of naturally generated Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) than ever! EMR is produced naturally by the sun, our atmosphere (the auroras), and the earth itself as low level electromagnetic fields.  Unless we...
Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity-help is hard to find, but it’s Available!

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity-help is hard to find, but it's available!  For years, some individuals have reported a wide range of non-specific health problems that they attribute to low-level exposure to electromagnetic fields, (EMF).  The symptoms include:  headaches, body pain, lethargy, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), nausea, burning sensation, heart arrhythmia, and anxiety.  The World Health Organization (WHO) said that "no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use".  The WHO, along with the International Agency...
Reverberation Chamber

The Reverberation Chamber is a very useful Tool in Automotive Testing!

The Reverberation Chamber is a very useful Tool in Automotive Testing! The Reverberation Chamber is a very useful tool in Automotive Testing.  This is especially true in the ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC) area.  Automotive Industry is constantly increasing its EMC standards.  The tests in the Automotive Industry are the ISO 114 52-2, CISPR-25, and the EN 61000-4-21 tests.  United States based vehicle manufacturers market their vehicles worldwide, so these standards are always incorporated in their basic company standards. These standards are increasing...

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...
Eliminate Crosstalk

Cable Sleeves Eliminate “RFI Crosstalk”, keeping Data Secure!

Cable Sleeves Eliminate "crosstalk", keeping Data Secure.  Cables are the way that information is transferred between computers.  Crosstalk refers to electromagnetic interference from one unshielded twisted wire pair  to another unshielded twisted wire pair travelling parallel with each other.  Electric signals passing through wires create magnetic fields that interact with each other.  A wire can be either a "transmitter" or a "receiver" of electromagnetic noise.  Both forms of interference/noise affect the data quality negatively.  There are two ways of stopping...
RF Shielded Test Enclosure

Pre-Compliance Testing is Important, Prepare your Product for the Final!

Pre-Compliance Testing is important, prepare your Product for the Final!  I'm not talking about school here.  Manufacturers of electronic devices know exactly what I'm talking about.  In order for an electronic device to be marketed, it must pass Final Compliance Testing on RFI susceptibility and RFI emission standards.  These standards regulate how much RFI affects the device, and how much RFI the device emits.  The device must pass these rigorous Final Compliance Tests at approved testing centers in order...
RF Shielded EMC Testing Enclosure

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...
