Do you know the importance of EMC Tests?
EMC tests are essential to verify electronic equipment’s compliance and safety. They test the device’s ability to function appropriately in the presence of electromagnetic interference, ensuring that it does not cause interference with other electronic equipment.
EMC tests include interference immunity assessment, verifying the device’s ability to operate normally in the presence of electromagnetic interference, emission assessment, proving that the device emits acceptable levels of electromagnetic interference; and resistivity, which verifies that the device withstands voltage surges.
These tests are carried out in specialized laboratories with measuring equipment, use of an anechoic chamber, and controlled interference sources, following international standards and regulations, such as CEI/IEC 61000 and CISPR/ETSI.
Carrying out EMC tests is essential to guarantee the reliability and safety of electronic equipment, as well as to avoid problems of electromagnetic interference and promote the guarantee of use of the radioelectric spectrum. In addition, approval of EMC test results is required to obtain certifications and regulatory approvals in various markets.
In short, EMC tests are essential to the electronic equipment development and verification process, ensuring device reliability, safety, and compatibility.
