EMC compliance standards are changing

03 March, 2017

Years ago, manufacturers made AV equipment and others made information technology equipment. Crossovers between the two categories were rare.

E-T-A REX12-T electronic circuit protector

25 October, 2016

The E-T-A REX12-T electronic circuit protector has a protective element for mechanical engineering and process control.

Mini-Circuits CLM-83-2W+ ultra-wide frequency power limiter

11 November, 2014

Mini-Circuits' CLM-83-2W+ is an RoHS-compliant limiter which protects against ESD and input RF power surges, up to 1.6 W, across a wide frequency range. The rugged limiters, only 0.12 x 0.12 x 0.045″, provide protection for low-noise amplifiers and other sensitive equipment, especially in hostile environments where unwanted signals prevail.

PMM L1-150M multistandard LISN

20 January, 2014

The PMM L1-150M multistandard LISN provides line impedance stabilisation networks for conducted RFI in the range of 10 kHz to 400 MHz. This is said to make EMC testing simpler and less costly.

The unit conforms to international, national and in-house standards, including IEC/EN standards.

Reliable power supplies and commercially viable circuit design

11 February, 2013

Faults in production are difficult to eliminate in their entirety - for example, short circuits may appear in the wiring or individual consumers may experience malfunctions. Ideally, however, the machine or plant should be able to continue operation without interruption. The fuse protection on the secondary side of the 24 V power supply plays an important role in this.

Throwing some light on electromagnetic fields

Testing the effect of electromagnetic fields on humans to find out if CFLs are safe to use.

Vishay LLP2510 four-line ESD-protection array

15 December, 2011 by

Vishay has released a 4-line ESD-protection array in the ultra-compact LLP2510 package. Featuring a compact 2.5 mm x 1.0 mm footprint and ultra-low profile of 0.55 mm, the VBUS54ED-FBL offers low capacitance and leakage current for protecting high-speed data lines against transient voltage signals.

Making PCBs EMC compliant

09 November, 2011 by George Stavrinou, Westek Electronics

PCB board design is often governed by established cost aspects. If a designer comes up with an EMC-proof design (in theory difficult, if not impossible to achieve without actually testing it as a product), they are likely to hear that it’s going to be expensive to lay it out according to their wishes.
