EMC and Electrical Safety Solutions for Industrial Electronics
EMC for Industrial Electronics
Electronics in the industrial environment can cause electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) problems.
Equipment intended for use in the industrial environment must be able to withstand higher levels of radiated and conducted threats (compared to the residential & commercial environments); however, emission limits are relaxed.
Higher levels of EMC threat can be a problem when incorporating components not specifically intended for the industrial environment, or when designing such components.
Industrial equipment is covered by a multitude of product-specific standards and also two generic EMC standards: EN 61000-6-4 for emissions and EN 61000-6-2 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.
Our accredited Electrical Safety testing to the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) includes IEC/EN 60950 and 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 for this harsh 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.
