When EMC Is of Vital Importance

Santa Rosa, California, February 27, 2023 – Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is a growing concern in medical technology and regulatory standards continue to implement measures to prevent disruption in wireless communication between medical applications, which can have severe consequences for the patient. SCHURTER works diligently to stay abreast of equipment trends and their required compliance with the strictest EMC standards.

Implantable medical devices, for instance, like pacemakers use wireless technology to communicate with a control unit via a radio signal. The signal has a specific frequency to prevent the electronics used in that frequency range from emitting radiation. Therefore, EMC is of vital importance in the development of these devices.
