Introduction to Electromagnetic Environmental Effects ( E3 ).
Duration: 1 day
Continuing Education Units: 2
( 1 for attending lectures, 1 for participation in demonstrations. )
Equivalent to 20 Professional Development Hours (PDH)
per Pennsylvania Engineering Act 25 CE section 4.2
This course is an Introduction to:
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC);
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI);
Electromagnetic Pulse ( EMP ); High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulses ( HEMP )
and the other natural and man made Electromagnetic Phenomena
that can disrupt or destroy your communications, data, electrical power, and otherwise cause havoc to any advanced nation.
Due in part to the Wireless Revolution, electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) are
increasingly becoming a widespread concern. As more devices produce intentional
and unintentional radio signals, they increasingly interfere with each other.
This is known as Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), an important part of the general field of Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3). The devices will not work together by accident. They must be specially designed to be compatible, that is: to prevent Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and achieve Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC.) Originally limited to the shipboard, aerospace, and missile fields, concerns about Electromagnetic Environmental Effects and Electromagnetic Compatibility can now be found in offices, communication centers, hospitals AND BANKS.
This course covers the basic concepts and terminology of Electromagnetic
Environmental Effects and Electromagnetic Compatibility, along with an
overview of current military and civilian practices. It provides
practical advice on ways to prevent Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
and achieve Electromagnetic Compatibility without technical or
administrative "overkill." Participants will gain an unusually broad
overview of current world wide commercial and military EMC practices.
They will gain the knowledge necessary to make practical and intelligent
decisions regarding the design, acquisition, testing, troubleshooting and
life-cycle management of electromagnetically compatible systems.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course is specially designed for non-technical decision makers
involved in the production, acquisition or management of Information Technology (IT),
computers, communications, instrumentation, robotics, or other electronic devices. E3 engineers can also
benefit from the unusually broad range of topics covered in this
short, practical course. Presented with many of the most
widely used E3 tools readily at hand, this course illustrates basic
E3 concepts in an effective, easy-to understand manner.
