Davicom MAC EMC Testing

Here is a short video showing EMC testing of the Davicom MAC in our lab.

MAC units have been developed and tested to operate in high-level electric fields of up to 10V/m and to resist electrostatic discharges of up to 12kV. Exactly the type of environment you'd expect to find near high power transmitters on a mountaintop with a metal tower.
ESD immunity is very important for equipment that is often installed in sites where static discharges can be quite common. Remote-Control & Monitoring equipment must keep working reliably in these conditions so it can advise operators of problems at the site.
