Some facts to Know About Electromagnetic Compatibility


EMC or Electromagnetic Compatibility is the unintentional generation, reception, and propagation of electromagnetic waves that may sometimes mess with different electrical systems’ equipment and components. We live in a world where electronic devices have gained a lot of prominence in the recent decade. Today, the risk of electromagnetic compatibility is more, since the radiation and interference can hugely alter electronic components and equipment usage. Moreover, the EMC or electromagnetic compatibility affects the electronic equipment, but it also affects the surrounding that the electronic components work in. So, for instance, the electronic components working in susceptible environments such as in airplanes and hospitals, if they are under interference and radiation, might cause the loss of several human lives. Therefore, it is evident that the study of the EMC or Electromagnetic Compatibility is essential for the manufacturer and the engineers in charge of making these components. It is equally important that the manufacturer and the engineers know how to safeguard their instruments from these interferences and radiations so that the components can work without any alteration.

Factoring in EMC at Product Design and Development Stage

At the time of the product design and the development phase, the developer pays heed to the practical implementation of the product. The only job of the developer then is to make the model or the prototype of the product and give the painting drawn on the blackboard life. But, will making the practical model and running it in ideal condition means that the product is healthy and is ready for large-scale deployment. Does it mean that it will run as expected when it is deployed in many scenarios? Other machines impair the machine’s function, or will this machine impair other machines by the wave it emanates when it functions?


For instance, we can take a remote-controlled light, which can be very useful in the operating room. Now, it has been seen that whenever the light is being controlled by the remote, there is some faltering in the monitoring system and other critical life support equipment. Now, will the doctor permission to use this remote-controlled light in the operating system by risking the failure of the other life support systems? No, right. Therefore, before large-scale production, the companies should use their product in different environments to ensure that it doesn’t disrupt other electronic components.

Choosing the Shielding Material

Electromagnetic shielding mainly does shield your equipment from the EMI and the RFI, also known as the Radio Frequency Interference. Most metals are used for this shielding purpose, and some of the most famous metals that are known to provide a shield from EMI and RFI are copper, nickel, and steel alloy, which are used in an enclosure to provide the maximum shielding. Moreover, many experts believe that an alloy made out of copper, nickel, iron, and molybdenum gives the best shielding. 3g Shielding provides the best shielding services in Florida.
