A world class EMI/EMC (Electromagnetic Interference and Compatibility) Test Facility is presently being established at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, which is funded by the Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC), Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India. The major focus of this facility would be to test the EMC compliance of modern electronic instruments and gadgets presently used in the medical industry. The proposed EMI/EMC testing facility would provide extensive compliance tests of all types of electronic and communication devices with special emphasis on medical instruments starting from low frequency to RF range. The proposed facility would conduct the electromagnetic interference and electrical safety tests required for various electronic devices and medical instruments as per IEC 60601, CISPR 11, and CISPR 16 standards.
