This is a half-day technical seminar sponsored by the IEEE Oregon Section.
Registration/check-in starts at 8:30 am, with the seminar starting promptly at 9:00.
In this three-part seminar, you will learn about the most recent developments in product compliance regulations in electromagnetic compatibility, safety, and waste equipment disposal.
This workshop consists of these three Modules:
- The Evolution of Electromagnetic Compatibility and a Comparison of Test Standards - Benitez
- Accessibility and Insulation Types for IEC 61010-1 Compliance - Warren
- Worldwide WEEE Regulations - Schroeder
**Module 1 - The Evolution of Electromagnetic Compatibility and a Comparison of Test Standards – Henry Benitez
This session will review the evolution electromagnetic compatibility since the 1800’s when Maxwell’s equations were first developed until today. A review of common product family and generic product standards will be provided along with a comparison of the basic test standard and specified test levels.
**Module 2 - Accessibility and Insulation Types for IEC 61010-1 Compliance – Al Warren
This talk will be a review of Accessibility and Insulation types that relate to the evaluation of Creepage and Clearance per IEC 61010-1 “Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use – Part 1: General requirements”. Part 1 specifies general safety requirements for electrical equipment intended for professional, industrial process, and educational use.
**Module 3 - Worldwide WEEE Regulations – George Schroeder
This talk will present an overview of the current status of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) requirements around the globe. WEEE together with RoHS (lead-free) by the European Community set collection, recycling and recovery standards for manufacturers for disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment. Topics covered will include fees, documentation, local regulations and take-back arrangements.
Who should attend the seminar:
This course is intended for engineering professionals – design and manufacturing engineers, compliance engineers/managers, product engineers/managers, manufacturing and product development managers.
Experience or education (AS or BS level) in electronic (or electrical) engineering, physics, computer engineering, related scientific fields.
