EMC Standards Overview

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) can be defined as the ability of electronics and electrical equipment to operate in their intended environments without suffering unacceptable performance degradation or unintentionally causing performance degradation in other equipment operating in the same shared environment. Performance degrading threats can be naturally occurring or man-made and can be categorized into 4 types of tests: Radiated Immunity (1), Radiated Emissions, Conducted Immunity, and Conducted Emissions. The tests for EMC are defined in various standards and adopted by numerous organizations. It is imperative that products meet the requirements set forth in these standards, because, among basic interoperability, public safety also relies on the products to perform as intended.
