Statistical models for maximum electromagnetic fields within RF reflective enclosures (i.e. complex cavities) have historically been derived from parent distributions obtained from the central limit theorem applied to sums of random variables.
Ever contemplated becoming a consultant? Living free of the corporate bureaucracy? Collecting those big fees? Traveling the world? But how does one get started anyway?
Radiated emission measurements are required worldwide as one type of EMI measurement to demonstrate product compliance with regulatory requirements.
If you are entering the Japan marketplace for the first time, it is highly recommended to hire an experienced regulatory consultant, familiar with the latest requirements as they frequently change as electronics equipment advances, especially since many Japanese consumers are early adopters of new technologies.
According to statistics from the WiFi Alliance, 12 billion WiFi-enabled products have been deployed since the year 2000. Another 3 billion are expected to ship in 2016 alone, with device deployments doubling by 2020 (3 million every day).
This month in our series exploring the latest industry insight on effective product safety label design and symbol usage, we’ll focus on the importance of consistency in the use of symbols and formats for both product safety labels and facility safety signs. For many years, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) regulations for workplace safety signs were based on outdated 1941-era formats. That changed about two and a half years ago. In October 2013, OSHA incorporated the latest versions of the ANSI Z535 safety sign, tag and color standards into its safety regulations, aligning them with today’s best practices. Let’s look at how this change, which allows for consistent sign and label formats using the latest standards, is impacting our products and our workplaces.
Almost every safety standard has requirements addressing the accessibility of certain parts.
If you are a novice designer of electronic circuits, this is one of the best pieces of advice I can give you from my experience in EMI troubleshooting and training.
