Hello everyone,
Can someone explain what is the EMC filter? Is is EMI, RFI, or harmonics filtering?

Hello Luc

EMC stands for Electromagnetic Compatibility and is a European requirement.

The EMC standards cover electromagnetic interference generated by the equipment and electromagnetic interference to the equipment.

The standards cover radiated and conducted emmissions and cover a very wide frequency spectrum up to 1GHz.
They include electrostatic discharge tests to all exposed conductors and control circuits.

Harmonics are handled separately.

Best regards,
