Why is EMC testing important?

It is essential to test your products to ensure they meet the regulatory requirements, and to improve their performance. In addition to product safety and wireless coexistence, it is important to consider EMC principles in the early stages of the product development cycle. Considering EMC principles during the product design stage will also help you to reduce the risk of non-compliance and the cost associated with re-design.

Who needs EMC testing?

Most electrical products need to be tested before they are considered safe to enter the market. EMC and EMI compliance is especially important for radio and wireless devices as well as products for medical or automotive use where failure is not an option.  Products including medical devices, phones, and other electrical equipment all need to be tested before they are considered safe to enter the market. Element has one of the widest scopes of services of any EMC compliance business in the world, covering a broad range of products from the smallest wearable technologies and implantable devices through to very large capital items or even in-situ installations.
