Conducting EMC Testing and Complying with FCC Regulation

Posted on 2019-06-10 by AINA Marketing

Conducting EMC testing and complying with FCC regulation is crucial to ensure the safety of users of electronic devices.

Every electronic device, like a radio, tablet, phone or Bluetooth speaker-microphone sends out emissions. Unsafe devices can interfere with any wireless communication, even lead to the malfunctioning of a GPS in a tablet or phone. This can affect the accuracy in the positioning of a vehicle or a person in distress. For many medical, military, industrial, aerospace and automotive products and industries, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) performance can mean the difference between life and death.



Therefore, regulatory bodies around the world have placed limits on the levels of emissions that electronic and electrical products can generate to protect the electromagnetic spectrum and frequency bands reserved for radio transmissions. If you design, manufacture or import electronic devices, EMC testing is necessary to ensure that your device doesn't emit a large amount of electromagnetic interference and that that it functions as it is supposed to.

 
In the United States, The Federal Communications Committee strictly enforces the FCC Code Title 47, Part 15 to assure all our safety. Not complying with the FCC rules is a violation of federal law, not only for the maker of to the illegal products, but also to the ones who resell or even recommend them.

Any electronic device must have a valid FCC ID on the back of the unit itself. If it’s missing or wrong, it probably doesn’t exist. You can easily verify this by going to: www.fcc.io and type in the FCC ID into the search field. For AINA’s PTT Voice Responder that is: 2AH78-APTT1.
