The EMCIA's position on PLT
Last year, the EMC Industries Association (www.emcia.org) chose me as their President, a decision that they have not yet come to regret (but its still early days). If you haven’t heard of the EMCIA, it’s probably because it has been run for the benefit of its members and has kept a low profile as far as the rest of the world is concerned.
But recently, the EMCIA has decided that there are various issues in EMC that are not being correctly addressed, and that it ought to try to play a part in getting them resolved, for the benefit of all. The first issue they have decided to address is the situation surrounding PLT (powerline technology), also known as broadband-over-powerline (BPL) or powerline communications (PLC).

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!
