Elmac Services

The UK's premier EMC consultancy

Elmac Services offer design consultancy and training on EMC aspects at all stages of electronic and electrical product development. This includes individual consultancy and training seminars to your own requirements. We have particular expertise in the application of European EMC standards and test methods.

Many companies do not have the resources to be expert in EMC and need the services of an outside advisor. We can help you with

  • assessing your designs at an early stage for conformance to EMC principles, and proposing an EMC test plan
  • training your staff on how to incorporate EMC principles into their designs, and on the management implications of EMC-related legislation
  • advice and training on setting up and using your own test facility, whether for accredited testing or otherwise; and consultancy on achieving accreditation for your lab
  • investigating EMC problems in the field and advising on mitigation or remedial measures

Elmac Services have extensive experience in product design to both immunity and emission standards. We number a wide variety of electrical and electronics companies among our clients, from the smallest to the largest. If you have EMC problems, we'll help you solve them.

Training Courses

The next public training course on Design for EMC is at TÜV SÜD PS, Fareham on 23rd-25th February 2016. Visit TUV's training page to find out more and book.


A presentation on Power Converter Installation has been added to the papers page.

A new paper has been added on "Project management and COTS". The title is a little misleading; originally written to help project managers and others in military contractors understand why, from the EMC point of view, using commercial-off-the-shelf equipment might not be such a good idea after all, its scope has been broadened to look at the design implications in general of many of the military and aerospace requirements. The discussion includes RF emissions and susceptibility, and the DO-160 lightning susceptibility requirements, along with some LF power supply issues. Comparisons are made between military and commercial specs for several phenomena.
