Fundamentals of EMC
Fundamentals of EMC is a unique five day course that will provide you with the essential knowledge required to help manage EMC and achieve EMC compliance.
An understanding of EMC is essential for the reliable operation of electrical/electronics equipment and systems for the commercial, automotive and aerospace markets. It is also essential to understand what exactly is happening during product acceptance and the route to compliance.
It is illegal to sell or operate electronic equipment or systems that are not compliant with the EMC Directive within the European Economic Area.
- Four days with a mixture of lectures, presentations, interactive workshops and demonstrations
- One day of practical demonstrations at our UKAS accredited Test Laboratory to illustrate the commonly required EMC tests described in the EN 61000-4-x series of standards such as; conducted emissions, radiated emissions, conducted immunity and radiated immunity
Applying the knowledge and understanding from this course will improve the management of EMC, minimise the risk of unforeseen problems and project/production delays in equipment manufacture thus reducing business risk.
Note: This course is also available specifically tailored to the railway industry. For more information click here.
Bookings for this course can be made up to 14 days prior to the course start date. For bookings made closer to the start date, please call us for availability.
