Wiring and Cable Design Avoid 'Front Door EMI"
The discipline of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) concerned with the design of Electronic Systems, while minimizing electromagnetic coupling and interference from within the system and between the systems to its environment. The discipline of electromagnetic compatibility covers and requires involvement in a wide range of other fields of engineering, wiring and cabling engineering, electronic engineering, etc.
Meeting the strict EMC standards, as well as ensuring the satisfactory performance of the equipment in its intended electromagnetic environment requires the implementation of technical measures into the system’s design. Most interaction of electromagnetic fields and systems occur via the cables and wiring associated with the System. In fact, very appropriately, field to cable interactions are considered “the front door of EMI”. Therefore, no EMC design can be complete without the proper implementation of proper design of cables of wiring. Proper implementation of the necessary design measures in the early stages of the electronic equipment cables and wiring design and installation is a mandatory and yet cost-effective approach for the control of EMI in modern electrical and electronic equipment.
