Electromagnetic compatibility, or EMC, means that a device is compatible with (i.e., no interference is caused by) its electromagnetic (EM) environment and it does not emit levels of EM energy that cause electromagnetic interference (EMI) in other devices in the vicinity. These interference phenomenon are evaluated and quantified by two types of tests: Emissions and Immunity, which are described below.
Emissions testing measures the amount of unwanted radiated and conducted electrical noise being unintentionally sourced by electrical and electronic products under test. US Tech is accredited for testing to a wide range of domestic (FCC, FAA, Mil. Std) and foreign (IEC, EN) emissions standards.
Immunity testing measures how susceptible products are to the presence of electrical and radio disturbances such as ESD (Electro Static Discharge), RFI (Radio Frequency Interference), Electrical Surges (at AC mains and ports), EFT (Electrical Fast Transients at AC mains), Conducted Immunity (noise coupled into AC mains), and Magnetic Fields. US Tech is also accredited for testing to a wide range of domestic (FCC, FAA, Mil. Std) and foreign (IEC, EN) immunity standards.
