Presented By ACIL and Don HEIRMAN Consultants
ACIL Announces New EMC Webinar Series
In keeping with the need for updates on a wide variety of EMC topics focusing primarily on EMC standards, key EMC committee meetings, and other EMC activity, ACIL has launched a series of webinars for the remainder of 2015. The webinars will be given by Don Heirman, Don HEIRMAN Consultants, who is a recognized leader in EMC standardization activity worldwide.
These webinars will follow the conclusion of EMC activity especially those which derive from a key EMC committee meeting.
The intention is to have webinars with the ability to ask questions following the presentation of the Power Point slides. They will be recorded for future viewing as well. This is a member benefit for ACIL members who will not pay any registration fee. Those not members of ACIL will have a fee to either participate in the live presentation or to purchase the video.
The dates and topics will be posted on the ACIL website, well in advance to register to join the webinars. The catalogue of recorded webinars is also available on the ACIL web site for purchase by non-ACIL members and for access by ACIL members with no charge.

June 8, 2015; 11:00 am – 12:30 pm ET: Review of IEC Advisory Committee on EMC (ACEC) May meeting
August 4, 2015; 11:00 am – 12:30 pm ET: Review activities of ANSI Accredited Standards Committee C63
October 20, 2015; 11:00 am – 12:30 pm ET: Review of the annual IEC/CISPR meeting in Italy
December 1, 2015; 11:00 am – 12:30 pm ET: Review of IEC Advisory Committee on EMC (ACEC) November meeting
The first EMC Webinar will be on April 29th at 11am EDT:
As part of ACIL’s continuing updates on EMC activity, a webinar will be held on April 29th, 2015 at 11 am EDT. The webinar will present the active EMC standards of the IEEE EMC Society, which are in need of updating, and experts will have the opportunity to join the working groups. Next trends in CISPR and its subcommittees are noted, followed by the recent activity of IEC 77 (EMC) in their low frequency standards (covering under 9 kHz) including addressing compatibility levels between those working on power meters and those using power converters (ac/dc power supplies) and their high frequency standards (covering above 9 kHz) including the update of TEM and reverberation techniques. This webinar will be given by Don Heirman, Don HEIRMAN Consultants, who is a recognized leader in EMC standardization activity worldwide.
