17 - Overview of test methods for EMC Directive Compliance
Provides 1.5 hours towards CPD
Updated Oct 2018
This is Product Designer's overview of typical commercial/industrial EMC tests applied by EN standards under the EMC Directive.This course is designed for Design Engineers to provide an overview of requirements. We have other courses for those concerned with EMC testing.
Module is 81 slides over 41 pages.

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!
