How to Ensure Your LED Lighting Products Meet Industry Standards

Manufacturers and engineers are challenged with making sure their LED lighting products meet industry standards to pass UL, CSA, TUV, Intertek, and other specifications. This whitepaper shows how engineers and technicians can easily confirm that these products meet the necessary parameters for compliance — before being sent to testing facilities.

dB or not dB?

True or false: 30 dBm + 30 dBm = 60 dBm? Why does 1% work out to be -40 dB one time but then 0.1 dB or 0.05 dB the next time? These questions sometimes leave even experienced engineers scratching their heads. What is a decibel and how should we use it in our calculations? This Application Note is intended as a refresher on the subject of decibels.

Mathematical Tools of the Trade Poster

AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation's updated Mathematical Tools of the Trade poster provides a quick reference for EMC equations and conversions that are needed on a day-to-day basis whether at your desk or in your lab. From unit conversions, Ohms Law relationships, linear to log conversions, radiated field strength, antenna equations, to VSWR conversion, and more!

Exploring the Necessity of the Hot Hipot Test

Naturally, the mere mention of the more specific Hot Hipot test can bring about feelings of apprehension. Yet the concepts involved with the Hot Hipot test don’t have to be entirely elusive to operator and engineer alike. In fact, with a basic understanding of a Hipot test setup, it is relatively easy to understand, implement, and perform a Hot Hipot test.

The Ultimate MIL-STD-461G TESTalk

In this informative TESTalk, you get technical insights into MIL-STD-461G requirements from one of the world's top EMI/EMC experts. Jeff Veil, Chief Engineer for EMC/E3 at NTS, walks you through the EMI/EMC requirements for equipment and subsystems procured by the Department of Defense.

Frequency and Wavelength Calculation

This frequency to wavelength calculator is especially useful for the calculation of the element length of the dipole antennas. Many of our dipole antennas have adjustable element lengths and by entering the frequency of interest this calculator will calculate the wavelength (or element length) corresponding to the required frequency. You can also enter in the wavelength and this calculator will calculate the corresponding frequency.
