Elmac Services

The UK's premier EMC consultancy

Elmac Services offer design consultancy and training on EMC aspects at all stages of electronic and electrical product development. This includes individual consultancy and training seminars to your own requirements. We have particular expertise in the application of European EMC standards and test methods.

Many companies do not have the resources to be expert in EMC and need the services of an outside advisor. We can help you with

  • assessing your designs at an early stage for conformance to EMC principles, and proposing an EMC test plan
  • training your staff on how to incorporate EMC principles into their designs, and on the management implications of EMC-related legislation
  • advice and training on setting up and using your own test facility, whether for accredited testing or otherwise; and consultancy on achieving accreditation for your lab
  • investigating EMC problems in the field and advising on mitigation or remedial measures

Elmac Services have extensive experience in product design to both immunity and emission standards. We number a wide variety of electrical and electronics companies among our clients, from the smallest to the largest. If you have EMC problems, we'll help you solve them.

New edition of EMC for Product Designers...

... was published at the end of September 2016. It's 10% thicker and well worth getting especially if your prized copies of the first or second editions are getting a bit dog-eared.

More news

Elmac's Tim Williams presented a short tutorial at the IEEE EMC Society UK Chapter meeting in London on December 7th, with the title "Use and Abuse of Screened Cables". The slides can be found on our papers page. That meeting also marked the end of an era in EMC: the chapter's chairman, Brian Jones, announced his retirement, not only as chairman but also from all involvement in the EMC community. As many will know, Brian has been a stalwart, influential and constant figure in the business for decades. We will miss him: have a happy retirement, Brian!

Training Courses

The next available public training course on Design for EMC is at TÜV SÜD PS, Fareham on 25th – 27th January 2017. Visit TUV's training page to find out more and book. More courses will be run later in 2017.
