Achieving electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) compliance is now straightforward, quick, and easy – using the EM Engineering process that Keith Armstrong describes in this article.
The risk management requirements of EN/IEC/ANSI/AMIEE 60601-1-2 Edition 3 (2007) and IEC 60601-1-2 Edition 4 (2014) are mostly either ignored or misunderstood by manufacturers, their EMC test labs, and medical regulatory assessors.
Keith Armstrong is the founder and principal of Cherry Clough Consultants Ltd, UK based but with clients worldwide, and uses well-proven EMC engineering principles and practicesto help companies achieve compli... Read More...
Conducted emissions testing may be carried out on an Open Area Test Site (OATS) intended for testing radiated emissions, but it is not necessary to use an OATS and conducted emissions can be tested relatively easily, with high accuracy, in the comfort of your own building.
The reliability of electronic technologies (including the software and firmware that runs on them) can become critical when the consequences of errors, malfunctions, or other types of failure include significant financial loss, mission loss, or harm to people or property (i.e. functional safety).
Conducted RF emissions are electromagnetic disturbances (noise voltages and currents) caused by the electrical and electronic activity in an item of equipment, and conducted out of that equipment along its interconnecting cables, such as power, signal or data cables.
