Commercial EMC overview
ITC Services are specialists in the field of EMC requirements
To obtain EMC compliance you will be required to measure RF emissions emanating from cables and radiating from the device under test itself, as well as complying with an extensive range of immunity measurements.
There are numerous EMC standards that cater for almost any type of device. These product EMC standards provides limits and test levels, but in general, they refer back to a series of basic EMC standards containing the measurement methods.
The EMC Directive (2004/108/EC) sets the essential protection requirements for electrical and electronic equipment.
The EMC Directive limits electromagnetic emissions of equipment in order to ensure that, when used as intended, this equipment does not disturb radio and telecommunication and other related equipment. The Directive governs the immunity of these types of equipment to interference and seeks to ensure that this equipment is not disturbed by radio emissions when used as described.
In order to market your electrical device(s) within any of the member states of the European Union, your product must comply with harmonized standards (such as EN 55022 for IT Equipment). For the South African market we use the SANS equivalent specifications in place of EN 55022 / CISPR 22 and IEC.
