New company EMC Standards to help engineers with EMC challenges

1 min read

Power quality specialist EMC Standards has been set up in Staffordshire to educate design engineers, electrical engineers, plant managers and other electrical practitioners about electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) issues. Set up by expert electrical engineers, the company aims to refresh the way people learn about EMC issues, moving away from the old ‘bricks and mortar’ methods to a new service that reaches a wider audience.

“EMC is generally not taught as part of conventional engineering qualifications, so we find that many engineers and designers are not as knowledgeable about EMC as they should be,” explained Keith Armstrong, EMC expert at EMC Standards. “We will help designers, development staff, installers and maintenance staff to gain a better comprehension of EMC at each stage of the product cycle.

EMC Standards will share this information through its website, which also contains downloadable information. There are a range of practical guides to regulations such as the 2004/108/EC regulations, which are the basis of EMC law in the UK.

The company also offers a subscription service, where subscribers will receive regular new information and training material as soon as it is released. For those who want to learn more about EMC, EMC Standards also offers paid content and increased access to unique and valuable resources.

“Through our own experiences, we have developed many ways to resolve EMC problems, which can save companies large amounts of time and money,” Armstorng added. “Many EMC issues can be solved using practical techniques that cannot be learnt in a classroom. Therefore, EMC Standards will educate design engineers and practitioners by using actionable information to solve real-world problems.”
