Stop EMI, EMD and RFI cold! Now you can get the newest, most effective weapons to fight costly and potentially devastating electromagnetic interference (EMI), electromagnetic discharge (EMD), and radio frequency interference (RFI) in the field or on the bench. EMI Troubleshooting Techniques, by Michel Marduian, arms you with an arsenal of fail-safe, time- and labor-saving diagnostic routines to help you pinpoint and lock out even the most persistent interference problems. Its 4-step approach lets you 1) identify specific (and even hidden) trouble symptoms, 2) find the matching solutions, 3) implement them and 4) understand their strengths and limitations. From power line filters and conduction type fixes to transient suppressors and radiation control, this time-and money-saving guide streamlines robust designs, speeds on-site troubleshooting for industrial-strength applications, and simplifies EMC lab testing for optimal result. Plus, you get a variety of recommended filters, isolation transformers, shields, varistors, grounding and impedance devices, tapes, foils, and more.
