EMC for Functional Safety - Regulations and Legislation
This article describes the problems associated with‘electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) for functionalsafety’ for medical and healthcare equipment andintroduces a procedure for dealing with them.
Electronic technologies are increasingly used inmedical equipment that has an impact on safety.Unfortunately, all electronic technologies areinherently prone to suffering inaccuracy, errors inoperation or damage, due to electromagneticinterference (EMI).

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!
