Schaffner Wall Chart Details EMC Standards

April 21, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Schaffner EMC, Inc., has published a new full-color EMC Solutions wall chart covering key aspects of transient immunity testing and EMC standards, including schematic drawings and analyses of various test requirements. The fourth in Schaffner’s series of wall charts, this richly illustrated guide covers a broad range of data including:

Generic and Product Standards, Transient Occurrence, Energy Content, and Amplitude Density Spectrum.

Additionally, the chart summarizes common IEC 61000 standards including

IEC 61000-4-2 for electrostatic discharge (ESD); IEC 61000-4-4 for electrical fast transient (EFT); IEC 61000-4-5 for combination wave surge; and IEC 61000-4-12 for ring wave surge. A setup diagram for each test standard is shown.

The transient immunity chart is available free of charge. Other charts in the series of wall charts published by Schaffner include "The guide to RF emission testing," "The guide to LF and RF immunity," and "The guide to automotive component testing."
