Commercial EMC Test Summary

Ghery Pettit wrote a nice summary of commercial EMC testing in  a recent "Interference Technology".  

Commercial EMC tests cover a wide range of products.  These include the obvious ones like computers and their peripherals, but also cover household appliances, electric tools and a wide variety of other products.  While the standards, including limits and test methods may differ, all EMC test standards have a few things in common.  The most basic are the limits for emissions and the types and levels of immunity testing.

The article covers: Conducted Emissions, Radiated Emissions, Commercial Immunity Tests (ESD, Radiated electric field immunity, Electrical Fast Transients, Electric Surge, Conducted RF, Power Frequency Magnetic Fields, and Dips & dropouts.
