EMC – Electromagnetic Compatibility

Electromagnetic compatibility is the ability of electrical equipment to work satisfactorily in its electromagnetic environment without affecting this environment in an inadmissible way.

We verify the electromagnetic compatibility of equipment and systems of industrial electronics by means of tests.
