Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
With the proliferation of electronic devices into everyday life - TVs, washing machines, electronic ignitors, traffic lights, mobile phones, ATMs, anti-theft tags, to name but a few - there is a huge potential for devices to interfere with each other. That’s where Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing and certification becomes essential.
What is Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing?
Electromagnetic Compatibility, also known as EMC, is the interaction of electrical and electronic equipment with its electromagnetic environment, and with other equipment. When we test your product or system for EMC, we check whether it functions properly in its electromagnetic environment and that it does not interfere with other systems or equipment
In most markets around the globe EMC testing is necessary to gain access to a specific area of the world. The EMC testing helps you to meet the local regulatory requirements and improves your product performance at the same time.
