Four Types of EMI Issues OEMs Should Know About
What is Electromagnetic Interference?
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) refers to a disturbance that affects an electrical circuit. Lights can both cause and be the victim of EMI issues in your vehicle. For this reason, it is important to have a basic understanding of standard EMI format and to look for headlights that have been adequately designed and tested to reduce electromagnetic interference.
Four Types of EMI
Component Level vs. Vehicle Level
For OEM applications, lighting manufacturers focus on testing their products at a component (light) level. This is done to make sure that the headlights lights will not cause a vehicle-level EMI failure or interfere with other electronics in the vehicle. OEMs then test at a vehicle level to ensure that it meets regulatory requirements.
Standard vs. Custom Products
At J.W. Speaker, we design and manufacture both standard and custom products. For our standard products, we’ve established a set of high standards by which we design and test for electromagnetic compliance. For custom products, we design, test, and manufacture to meet your exact specifications. If you do not have EMI specifications, we’ll provide you with a list of industrial EMI standards to review and approve before we start on the design.
