Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing measures the ability of equipment or systems to function satisfactorily in their electromagnetic environment without introducing intolerable electromagnetic disturbance to anything in that environment. The EMC testing is necessary to help us meet regulatory requirements, improve product performance and reduce the risk of costly non-compliance. A third-party EMC test lab can conduct conformity assessments and also help us to strengthen your competitive position in the market.As we all know, EMC testing is critical for obtaining a CE mark: NUSDAT-UTS can provide you with EMC testing consultancy to help product makers comply with regional and worldwide laws. EMC testing is currently required in several nations. Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Britain, Gulf nations, the United States, Canada, and so on. However, in the United States and Canada, this is known as the FCC test. We will also introduce our own EMC laboratory in the near future.

EMC focuses on these types of issues.

  • Emission

Emission is the planned or unintentional creation of electromagnetic energy by some source and its discharge into the environment. EMC investigates harmful emissions and possible solutions to decrease unwanted emissions.

For Europe market, the standards for Household Products Emissions are:

  1. EN IEC 55014-1 (Emission Standard)
  2. EN IEC 61000-3-2 (Harmonics Current Standard)
  • EN IEC 61000-3-3 (Voltage Flicker & Fluctuations Standard)

For Industrial, Scientific, Medical Equipment’s Emission Standard is different which is EN IEC 55011. For Lighting Equipment’s Emission standard is EN IEC 55015. For Multimedia Equipment’s Emission Standard is EN IEC 55032.

  • Immunity

Immunity is the capacity of equipment to perform appropriately in the face of RFI, and the discipline of “hardening” equipment is known equally as susceptibility or immunity. For Europe market, the standards for Immunity is: EN 55014-2 which is divided into these standards and tests:

  1. EN IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD Test Standard)
  2. EN IEC 61000-4-3 (Radiated Immunity Standard)
  • EN IEC 61000-4-4 (Electrical Fast Transient Standard)
  1. EN IEC 61000-4-5 (Surge Test Standard)
  2. EN IEC 61000-4-6 (Conducted Immunity Standard)
  3. EN IEC 61000-4-11 (Voltage Dips & Interruptions Standard)

For Lighting Equipment’s Immunity standard is EN IEC 61547. For Multimedia Equipment’s Immunity Standard is EN IEC 55035.
