EMC Test
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive determines the basic requirements applicable for all electrical and electronic devices, whose operation may disturb other devices or may be influenced from and disturbed by other devices. Basic requirements determine that the maximum electromagnetic disturbing effects created by the device will not be able to prevent the use of the following devices: national radio and TV receivers, industrial production equipment, mobile radio equipment, mobile radio and commercial wireless phone equipment, medical and scientific tools, information technology equipment, household appliances and electronic household appliances, air and sea radio equipment, electronic training tools, telecommunication networks and equipment, radio and TV broadcast transmitters, lamps and fluorescent lamps and other devices should be manufactured in a way to have sufficient electromagnetic immunity in ordinary electromagnetic environments. The manufacturers have to prove the compatibility of their products through EMC tests. EMC Directive covers electrical and electronic devices and the systems consisting of electrical and electronic devices. However, EMC Directive is not applied only when the relevant product's description as a device fits in this description. There should be certain responsibility due to active or passive disturbance. It is possible for a device to cause emission only and not be disturbed by it. There may be devices that do not cause emission but that are exposed thereto and vice versa. For such devices, it will be sufficient to apply the emission or immunity standards. It is the manufacturer's responsibility to distinguish the devices that are within the context of the directive and the devices that do not cause disturbance and that are not influenced by such influences.
