EMC Short Course in South Africa: 31 Oct - 6 Nov 2018 presented by MESA Solutions (Pty) Ltd and Cherry Clough Consultants Ltd
To be held at the Denel Houwtec test facility, near Grabouw, Western Cape, South Africa To register, and for more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Given MESA Solution's close links with academia, it is only natural that we offer both fundamental and advanced training in EMC, which often does not receive enough consideration during the design process.
This will be our primary training event for 2018, supported by the IEEE 4th Global Electromagnetic Compatibility Conference (GEMCCON) that takes place immediately afterwards, from 7 to 9 November 2018, at nearby Stellenbosch University: https://sites.google.com/view/gemccon2018.
MESA Solutions and Keith Armstrong of Cherry Clough Consultants will be presenting this short course on EMC Fundamentals for Laboratories and Industry. The strong foci of this course are the underlying EMC principles and the practical design of PCBs, equipment, systems and installations. This includes incorporating hardening measures to reduce the effect of interference.
We will investigate the effects of unwanted electric and magnetic field coupling as demonstrated through a number of key experiments. The influence of ground loops, poor equipment placement and connections, and the effects of common conductors will also be considered. Finally, the practical design of circuits, PCBs, interconnections, filters and shields relevant to the interference frequencies being considered, will provide the attendees with the necessary tools to handle the majority of EMC issues quickly and cost-effectively.
