What is Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)?

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is the ability of electrical equipment, devices and systems to function properly and be compatible within their electromagnetic environment, and show no signs of generating, emitting or receiving electromagnetic energy causing electromagnetic interference (EMI) in other devices within the surrounding area.

EMC Testing Benefits

EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) testing is the process of evaluating the impact of electromagnetic interference on electronic devices and systems. The benefits of conducting EMC testing include:

  1. Improved product performance: EMC testing helps identify any potential issues that could affect the performance of electronic devices and systems, allowing manufacturers to make necessary design modifications to improve performance and reliability.
  2. Compliance with regulations: Many countries have regulations in place to ensure that electronic devices and systems meet minimum EMC requirements. EMC testing helps manufacturers ensure that their products comply with these regulations, avoiding potential legal and financial penalties.
  3. Increased customer satisfaction: EMC testing helps ensure that electronic devices and systems function properly and reliably in real-world environments, increasing customer satisfaction and reducing the risk of product returns.
  4. Improved safety: EMC testing helps identify potential safety issues that could be caused by electromagnetic interference, allowing manufacturers to make necessary design modifications to improve safety and reduce the risk of harm to users.
  5. Increased marketability: EMC testing helps demonstrate that electronic devices and systems meet the highest standards of quality and performance, increasing their marketability and competitiveness in the global marketplace.

Overall, EMC testing provides a number of benefits that help improve the performance, reliability, and marketability of electronic devices and systems, while also ensuring that they comply with relevant regulations and safety standards.

Intertek's EMC Solutions

We hold a long list of EMC accreditations from around the world. Our queue times are as fast as 3 days and we provide a 24-hour turnaround on quotes. We offer both open and fully sheltered sites, fully anechoic and semi-anechoic chambers, with site size ranging from 3 meters to 10 meters.

Save time and money by bundling EMC with other testing and certification needs (safety, environmental, energy efficiency, performance). With Intertek you will eliminate the headaches of using multiple labs, delays in logistics, and shipping costs.
