EMC for Consumer Electronics
The drive for lower cost consumer electronics can cause Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and electrical safety concerns. Cheaper, non-metallic casing, lower-power/low-voltage components and the inexorable demand for extra functionality in each product update can cause problems for manufacturers.
Consumer equipment is covered by a multitude of product-specific EMC standards and also two generic standards; EN 61000-6-3 for emissions and EN 61000-6-1 for immunity.
Our three laboratories near Bristol, Leeds and in Grangemouth offer pre-compliance and UKAS-accredited testing to the generic standards and to many product specific standards such as household appliances (EN 55014-1 and EN 55014-2).
Our accredited Electrical Safety testing to the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) includes IEC/EN 60335-1, IEC/EN 60335-2-X and EN 60065. We also offer CB scheme testing for global market access; for more information click here.
We can advise on procurement strategies, testing regimes, design issues and remedial measures necessary to address the electromagnetic compatibility requirements of this fragile environment.
York EMC Services also offer training at various levels, from one-day Essentials courses through to five-day Fundamentals helping manufacturers and their supply chains to achieve and maintain ongoing compliance to a number of CE Marking Directives including the EMC, Low Voltage and Radio Equipment Directives.
Still using EN-50081-1 or EN 50082-1 on your Declaration of Conformity to the EMC Directive 2014/30/EU? These standards are out of date!
