EMC compliance and design courses coming up

Keith Armstrong, a well-known author and expert in cost-effective EMC, safety management and design, is returning to Australia in April and May to present new and updated seminars on designing EMC for compliance.

Sponsored by EMC Technologies, Armstrong’s courses are aimed at helping companies enjoy greater success while using more advanced and complex electronic technologies in their products. The courses describe practical low-cost techniques to ensure quick and easy compliance with functional specs (signal integrity and power integrity) and achieve electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) for all electronic applications, for any test standards (civilian, automotive, military, aerospace, rail, etc).

The series include an updated seminar on the new EU CE marking directives that came into force in 2016–17, with a special focus on Radio Equipment Directive (RED) compliance for ‘combined equipment’ — products that incorporate Bluetooth, Zigbee, Wi-Fi, GSM, 3G, 4G or similar wireless datacomms — that used to comply with LVD and EMC directives but since June 2017 must comply with the RED instead. There will also be an updated seminar on medical EMC, including risk management of EMI for medical devices.

One of the newer seminars covers EMC engineering techniques for systems and installations (including rail), controlling EMI and complying with the right EMC standards even in the toughest applications. There will also be a new seminar with a focus on shielding and filtering to meet military EMC standards, to be presented in Adelaide only.

The series also includes a free half-day RCM course explaining compliance requirements and the process involving EMC, EMR, radio, electrical safety and cellular approvals for Australia and New Zealand. Presented by Chris Zombolas, technical director EMC Technologies, the session will explain the ACMA and EESS regimes including the testing, certification and administrative requirements for all product categories, including mobile phones and cellular devices.

The courses will be held at the following dates and locations:

  • 23–27 April: Adelaide — exact location to be confirmed
  • 30 April–4 May: Melbourne — EMC Technologies conference room, 176 Harrick Road, Keilor Park
  • 7–11 May: Sydney — EMC Technologies training room, 3/87 Station Road, Seven Hills
