Adding Up Emissions
Wouldn't it be nice if we could use CE marked components and sub-assemblies to construct products and be confident that they would meet the EMC Directive! This is something of a holy grail for manufacturers of one-off and limited production products such as some computers and most industrial controls. This article briefly describes how to achieve this most desirable objective.
It also describes how in the future it should be possible to achieve EMC due diligence merely by selecting the components and subassemblies to be used from a floppy disc or CD-ROM, along with making sure that assembly and service staff follow EMC instructions.

EMC Standards is a world-leading resource for all things EMC and EMI related. Our website is packed full of both free and paid-for content, including:
- Online quiz
- Training quiz
- And much more!
Electromagnetic Engineering (EMgineering) is the basis for proven good design practices for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and the control of EMI emissions and immunity (EMC).
Our aim is to help people learn how to more quickly and cost-effectively design and manufacture electronic equipment (products, systems, installations, etc.) to meet functional (i.e. SI/PI) specifications and conform to EMC standards, directives and other requirements.
Such equipment should benefit from reduced warranty costs and financial risks, whilst improving uptime, competitiveness and profitability.
We also cover basic good electrical safety engineering; and the Risk Management of Electromagnetic Disturbances / EMI, whether for Functional Safety or other types of risk.Join EMC standards TODAY!
