How to CE Mark your product for CE Certification

Firstly you should determine which EU Directives or regulations apply to your product. Once you have determined which directives or regulations apply then you should evaluate your product against the essential requirements of those directives to ensure that your product meets them. This may be through the use of harmonized […]

EN61000-3-3:2013 Limitation of voltage changes, voltage fluctuations and flicker

What is Flicker? The formal definition of flicker is the “impression of unsteadiness of visual sensation induced by a light stimulus whose luminance or spectral distribution fluctuates with time. Flicker can be considered as a symptom, resulting from the modulation of a load and its effect on its own terminal […]

Susceptibility : Dips and Interrupts

Dips and interrupts can occur on the AC power mains as a result of a fault in the distribution system such as an open circuit breaker or a sudden large load being turned on in the immediate vicinity. A power distribution system fault can cause a switch in the distribution […]

EMC Testing UK Low Cost Pre-Compliance Testing

EMC testing to the appropriate standard is required for imports into many countries. The EMC Directive only requires manufacturers to make a Declaration of Conformity listing the test standards they have “applied” when using the standards route to conformity. Customs officers may ask to see evidence that ‘due diligence’ has […]

EMC testing UK : Low Cost

EMC testing is a series of tests to ensure the product’s electromagnetic compatibility. EMC compliance is a mandatory requirement in most markets including Europe, the U.S., China, Korea, Australia and New Zealand. No electrical product or installation can be designed or launched into the market unless all aspects of EMC […]

Biconical Antenna : Low Cost EMC Testing UK

A biconical antenna is a broad-bandwidth antenna made of two roughly conical conductive objects, nearly touching at their points. Biconical antennas are broadband dipole antennas, typically exhibiting a bandwidth of 3 octaves or more. The biconical antenna has a broad bandwidth because it is an example of a traveling wave […]

EMC Radiated Emissions

Radiated Emissions Within the field of EMC, the term Radiated Emissions refers to the unintentional release of electromagnetic energy from an electronic device or apparatus. Any electronic device may generate Electromagnetic fields that unintentionally propagate away from the device’s structure. In general, Radiated Emissions are usually associated with non-intentional radiators, […]

Low Cost EMC Testing UK

EMCTESTINGUK invest in a new 30MHz to 1GHz biconical EMC Test Antenna for radiated emissions. The biconical antennas are suitable for interference field strength measurement. The specialized broadband characteristics allow measurements to be taken in the complete specified frequency range without switching. These antennas are suitable for measurement according to […]

What is EMC ? EMC Test

EMC stands for Electro Magnetic Compatibility.  It’s basically a standard that determines that an electronic or electrical product shall not generate electromagnetic disturbances, which may influence other products, equipment radio signals etc. So in other words, EMC addresses the problems of noise emission as well as noise immunity of electronic […]
