EMC Tips and Tricks

Build Your In-House EMC Testing System

We’re back with another installment of our EMC Tips & Tricks series! Last time, we gave you a preview of what to expect whether you decide to build your own pre-compliance system or take your product to a testing facility.

If you’ve opted to build an in-house EMC pre-compliance system, we’ve got some important pointers to consider as you figure things out.

Know Your Budget & Testing Requirements

Whether you’re a first-timer or you’re running these tests for the thousandth time, you’ll need to answer some questions first. It’s important to be aware of all the tests you’ll need to conduct, as well as the cash and manpower you’re willing to put towards this project.

With that information in hand, our sales representatives can assist you in putting together a plan that covers all your bases. Our compliance engineers are next in line, and they’ll be the ones actually building your test equipment. This process normally takes anywhere from 16 to 30 weeks depending on scheduling and specific needs.

Bargain Corner Equipment is Good as New

Extra reassurance is reasonable when it comes to equipment that’s to new-to-you. Our Bargain Corner contains loaner, demo, trade-in and discontinued equipment that has been rigorously tested to our standards. You’ll want to know that these items are still reliable & up for meticulous testing, and that’s exactly what you’ll get from our Bargain Corner.

Not only do you get a three-month warranty on all used purchases, you’ll also have peace of mind that this equipment, with proper calibration, will stay reliable for decades. While daily tech may change in the blink of an eye, testing equipment generally doesn’t need to keep up in the same way since it’s reliably made to perform only a few functions. This especially holds true with solid state options, which is important to keep in mind when making your final build decisions.

Our Bargain Corner testing equipment spans more than just EMC, so check it out for yourself and see what we’ve got to offer.

Installation & Training are Included with Your System

In addition to full-scale installation of your EMC testing equipment, you can expect basic training with more information about the tests you need to run once your build is finished. Testing systems aren’t very useful if no one on your team knows how they work, and we’re dedicated to a robust training process that boosts your already-insightful knowledge base. Mutual success is our ultimate goal, and we’ll be here every step of the way.

Even after installation and training, you can call us anytime with further questions about equipment or testing as they arise. We’re always here to help!

Next time, we’ll discuss the process when you bring your equipment to a Testing Facility, as well as what to know before you sign on to this endeavor for the long haul. Stay tuned!
