Installation Guidelines for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)

Installation Guidelines for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)

Issue

Faulty operation of BMS equipment due to electrical interference from other equipment can be difficult and costly to identify and fix.  Guidance is required for the best installation practices to minimize the source of the interference and to protect against it when it occurs.

Product Line

Andover Continuum, EcoStruxure Building Operation, Field Devices, OTHER, Satchwell MicroNet, Satchwell Sigma, TAC IA Series, TAC Vista

Environment

All electrical equipment

Cause

Poor installation can cause equipment to generate high and low-frequency electromagnetic interference that can disrupt the operation of other systems.

Resolution

Schneider Electric has produced a document Practical Installation Guidelines which discusses the theory and offers practical guidelines to protect against and minimize the generation of, electromagnetic interference.
