EMC, or electromagnetic compatibility, is a discipline of electrical engineering focused on both protecting devices from rogue electromagnetic energy and making sure devices don’t emit RF signals by accident. When electromagnetic energy is generated unintentionally, it is referred to as EMI, or electromagnetic interference, a force powerful enough to damage equipment or cause it to malfunction. In today's world, nearly all technology generates electromagnetic fields, meaning most electrical products needs to be tested by EMC test equipment. This equipment determines what sort of emissions devices will produce and how they will respond to interference in the field.
What are Radiated/Conducted and Immunity/Emissions Tests?
There are four types of EMC tests: radiated emissions, radiated immunity, conducted emissions, and conducted immunity. To fulfill these tests with the certainty that the device under test truly meets industry requirements, test engineers require equipment designed to fulfill test standards such as IEC 61000
, and DO-160
. Manufacturers who rely on EMC testing include developers of aerospace, defense, medical, automotive, and consumer electronics technology.
