Design for EMC - Systems and Installations

Training Course

Training Course

This course describes practical EMC engineering techniques for achieving reliable operation of custom-designed equipment, systems, and installations. The techniques are described using the example of industrial equipment, systems, and sites, but they can be used equally effectively for everything that involves connecting electrical or electronic units together with cables to construct systems or installations of any kind, whether fixed or mobile including military applications.

TÜV SÜD additionally offers the opportunity to deliver this training as a dedicated in-house course, delivered solely to your organisation to meet your needs and requirements. To receive a quote and find out more information, please contact us at [email protected]

Keith Armstrong

C.Eng, FIEE/IET, EurIng, ACGI of Cherry Clough Consultants Ltd, UK, on behalf of TÜV SÜD:

Keith’s early experience was in solving real-life interference problems in high-technology products, systems, and installations. This led to the formation of his own company providing a wide range of EMC services and the publication of papers and books including “EMC for Systems and Installations”, co-authored with Tim Williams, which is the foundation for this course. Keith’s professional activities include chairing IET and IEEE committees on EMC and functional safety and he is UK representative on the maintenance team for standard IEC 61000-1-2 (EMC and functional safety).
