Years ago, manufacturers made AV equipment and others made information technology equipment. Crossovers between the two categories were rare.
The E-T-A REX12-T electronic circuit protector has a protective element for mechanical engineering and process control.
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.
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 Schaffner Modula-6100 Immunity Test System, available to rent from TechRentals, is a multifunction generator that enables investigation of electromagnetic field interference effects and immunity testing. The unit conforms to international, national and in-house standards, including IEC/EN standards.
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.
Testing the effect of electromagnetic fields on humans to find out if CFLs are safe to use.
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.
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.
The compact ‘N’ series multifunctional EMC immunity test simulators from EM Test, covers a wide range of 32 common EMC immunity test standards.
The N9038A MXE EMI receiver, designed for laboratories that perform compliance testing of electrical and electronic products, has been released.
The N/W6141A electromagnetic compatibility measurement application for Agilent’s X-series of signal analysers is now available.
For more than a decade now, Australia has had mandatory regulations in place for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) for the majority of electric and electronic devices.
The Em Test model ESD 30N is an ESD tester for simulating ESD pulses to 30 kV with discharges up to 20 Hz in both air and contact discharge modes.
