Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
Sources of interference in accordance with IEC standard:
With optimized AD converters in the evaluation electronics of the PCAP controller, increased signal voltages through charge pumps, special algorithms such as the frequency-hopping method as well as hardware and software filters, interference sources are suppressed comprehensively. With a sensor design specially adapted to the electronics, additionally, an optimum signal-to-noise difference is achieved.
In the video you will find a test for the EMC certification.
Your product should comply with the European EMC standards and regulations. Prior to the final EMC test at an accredited test lab, it is recommended to investigate the EMC behaviour at the early design phase by performing pre-compliance tests. This can be done by yourself or with the assistance of SCHURTER Input Systems.
The following EMC standards have been met successfully:
IEC 60601-1-2: Edition 4.0
IEC 61000-4-3: Level III, 10 V / m, up to 28V / m @ 385 ~ 6000MHz
IEC 61000-4-4: Test Electrical Fast Transient / Burst Immunity. Level III, Vpp ± 2 KV
IEC 61000-4-6: Conducted Radio Frequency Immunity, Level III, 10V / m
Your SCHURTER EMC competence center:
SCHURTER has its own competence center with testing equipment for tests on conductive immunity. While testing during an early stage
of the development phase, possible EMC issues can be recovered. That gives more confidence in succeeding at the final (expensive) EMC tests first time and is of course cost-effective.
