TIMOTHY Horacek, EMC Product Specialist with Schaffner EMV AG, Europe, has extensive international experience in immunity testing for automotive electronics and will give an overview of current testing technology as well as protocols relevant to SAE and ISO standards.
The presentation will be of particular interest to component suppliers, automotive design engineers as well as those working in production engineering and QA functions within the automotive industry.
Mr Horacek will provide detailed information on testing sub-systems and components for susceptibility to conducted interference and discuss adaptation of testing methods to individual car manufacturers in-house acceptance tests.
These test protocols are particularly relevant because of the trend toward 42 volt batteries in order to save vehicle weight and costs on copper looms, thus creating unique challenges in the simulation of transient interference phenomena. He is visiting Westek Electronics Pty. Ltd . (www.westek.com.au) which is a corporate sponsor of the EMC Society.
This meeting is open EMC Society members and members of the public and is free of charge, however prospective attendees are requested to indicate intention of attending to assist in catering, by emailing email@example.com (preferably by close of business on Friday July 28).
It takes place at Engineers Australia, 21 Bedford Street, North Melbourne Melway 2B B9) on Monday July 31, 2006 at 6 pm. Light refreshments are provided.
