Electromagnetic Compatibility: Principles and Applications 2nd ed., Revised

David A. Weston, EMC Consulting Inc., Merrickville, Ontario, Canada


864 pages

An ideal guide for engineers and technicians preparing for the National Association of Radio and Telecommunications Electromagnetic Compatibility certification program!

This totally revised and expanded reference/text provides comprehensive, single-source coverage of the design, problem solving, and specifications of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) into electrical equipment/systems—including new information on basic theories, applications, evaluations, prediction techniques, and practical diagnostic options for preventing EMI through cost-effective solutions.

Offers the most recent guidelines, safety limits, and standards for human exposure to electromagnetic fields!

Containing updated data on EMI diagnostic verification measurements, as well as over 900 drawings, photographs, tables, and equations—500 more than the previous edition—the Second Edition of Electromagnetic Compatibility:

Effectively demonstrating innovative techniques for on-the-job use, troubleshooting, and time conservation, the Second Edition of Electromagnetic Compatibility is an authoritative reference for electrical and electronics, circuit/system design, and radio and telecommunications engineers, technicians, and technologists, and an ideal text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
