Do you have a product that requires EMC testing and compliance certification? This is something that is essential before you even manufacture your product. Learn more by reading below.
All over the world electrical and electronic products must comply with EMC (Electromagnetic Compliance) regulations.
International EMC standards have been developed for two main purposes: to regulate the number of electromagnetic emissions from equipment or a product; and to ensure immunity to electromagnetic interference.
Electrical and electronic installations and devices all influence each other when they are either interconnected or in close proximity to each other.
Examples are interference between a radio or television set in close proximity to overhead power lines or nearby appliances such as a washing machine.
Similarly, when many elements are managed electronically, interference could cause malfunction. EMC regulations have been designed to keep the side effects of these interferences under reasonable control.
Governments have introduced international EMC standards and directives to ensure compatibility and EMC testing has been implemented to ensure that systems can be evaluated for quality and functional safety.
EMC Standards and Regulations
It is essential for all manufacturers and importers of electrical and electronic products to ensure that their products are compatible with other equipment.
The regulations for all systems and equipment that use electricity, from battery operated products to high voltage installations, are set out in EU Directive 89/336.
This ensures that a limited amount of RF interference is created in order to avoid affecting other equipment.
EMC testing demonstrates to customers that products or equipment have been tested and fulfils the relevant EMC requirements.
Compliance Engineering has an extensive range of test capabilities and an advanced test laboratory to service the needs of customers throughout Australia.
These EMC testing and certification facilities fulfil a wide range of certification requirements that include environmental, shock, vibration, impact (IK), ingress (IP), and temperature.
As the only manufacturer of modular RF shielded enclosures in Australia, services include:
- New Installations
- Shielding effectiveness testing
- Servicing and relocation of existing RF enclosures
- RF shielded enclosure components such as EMC gaskets, RF power filters, RF waveguides, RF absorbing materials, and honeycomb air vents, etc.
- Installation of EMF shielding for electrical sub-stations for the reduction of EMF exposure levels to occupants in nearby buildings.
Compliance Engineering is one of the leading service providers for electromagnetic compatibility services offering clients the most cost-effective and efficient solutions for their EMC needs.
We are also agents for well-known international EMC equipment manufacturers of specialist EMC test equipment.
