EMC Testing for Oil and Gas

EMC Testing of Safety Systems for the Oil and Gas Industry

With many years EMC testing experience we have supported the oil and gas industry in achieving compliance, increasing safety and reliability.

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can cause major safety implications for the oil and gas industry.

Offshore platforms have safety systems that monitor, provide, receive and interpret signals from sensors and other integrated systems for unsafe conditions. Systems and plant will shut down in the event of unsafe conditions detected.

If these safety systems were to fail due to the presence of RF energy this could pose a substantial threat to personnel safety and add to the already hazardous industrial working environment and remote offshore location.

Safety and reliability elements are important and time to market is vital. RN Electronics can help you achieve and maintain compliance against numerous requirements and work with you on complex projects.
