The Importance of EMC Compliance

Posted on

LED work lights have the potential to affect other electronic equipment, due to their circuitry. This becomes more significant when they are interconnected and/ or in close proximity to each other. Interference can be identified by white noise on a radio or flickering images on a monitor, creating an unsafe working environment. To ensure these effects are reduced to an insignificant and nearly undetectable level, electronic equipment is tested to an industry standard and given an Electromagnetic CompEMC_Importanceatibility (EMC) rating. This ensures all electronic equipment fitted to vehicles, function as designed.

TYRI acknowledges the importance of work lighting that does not affect control systems, handheld communications, cameras, onboard computers / processors, GPS, and other radio sensitive equipment. This is why TYRI Lights are thoroughly tested to ensure they do not interfere with other equipment. In line with this philosophy, TYRI lights have been awarded CISPR 25 Class 5 ratings in most cases, the top level industry standard, and consistently perform well below the CISPR 25 Class 5 required limits. This ensures our lighting solutions will not interfere with any other onboard equipment.
