EMC Directive Evaluation and Testing
EMC Directive 2014/30/EU, formerly 2004/108/EC
F2 Labs can perform Electromagnetic Interference and Compatibility (EMC/EMI) testing of your product at our facility or on-site at your facility. With decades of experience, our expert engineers can assist you with all of your EMC compliance testing and trouble-shooting needs.
Definition of Electromagnetic Compatibility – The ability of equipment to function satisfactorily in its electromagnetic environment without introducing unacceptable electromagnetic disturbances to other equipment in that environment.
EMC Directive 2014/30/EU testing ensures the correct operation of equipment that responds to electromagnetic phenomena, is operated in the same electromagnetic environment and the avoidance of any interference effects. In other words, EMC is the control of Electromagnetic Interference so that unwanted effects are not produced.
EMC is separated into the following sections:
- Electromagnetic Interference (also called EMI and Radio-Frequency Interference or RFI) is a disturbance that affects an electrical circuit due to either electromagnetic induction or electromagnetic radiation emitted from an external source. The disturbance may interrupt, obstruct, degrade, or limit the effective performance of the product. Emission is the unwanted generation of electromagnetic energy.
- Immunity (also referred to as susceptibility) is the ability of the equipment that is affected by EMI to operate correctly in the presence of electromagnetic disturbances.
