CISPR Congress comes to Britain

Posted on 10/03/2017

FCS is proud to bne working with BSI to host the 2018 CISPR EMC standards-writing congress in the UK next year. 

FCS’s normal interest in radio emissions is in-vehicle installations and the wider PMR and critical communications industry.  But we are extending that purview in 2018 with an exciting new venture.  We’re working in partnership with BSI, the UK standards body to bring CISPR to the UK for the first time since 2001.  

We’re running the event at Aston University’s business conference centre in the heart of Birmingham, from September 24 – October 4 2018. 

CISPR’s work represents the largely hidden side of radio frequency engineering:  it covers spurious emissions in just about every area of society:

  • CIS/A covers radio-interference measurements and statistical methods
  • CIS/B handles interference relating to industrial, scientific and medical RF apparatus 
  • CIS/D deals with EM disturbances related to electric and electronic equipment on vehicles and devices powered by internal-combustion engines (like concrete mixers or chainsaws)
  • CIS/F covers interference relating to household appliances, tools, lighting and similar equipment 
  • CIS/H sets limits for the protection of radio services, and 
  • CIS/I, formed in 2001 from the former CIS/E and CIS/G, deals with EMC of information technology equipment (ITE), multimedia equipment and receivers.

 

Please contact Chris Pateman or Tim Cull for further details on how to get involved in this unique opportunity.
