Drone Experiencing EMC Compatibility Issues and Overheating With Use
All drone equipment must comply to electromagnetic compatibility or EMC regulations when the product is released to the market. These regulations ensure the safe, secure, and sustainable use of drones.
As well as compliance, the drone’s electronic system was not working to its full potential and connection to the drone was inconsistent, prompting safety issues.
Drones Need Critical EMI Shielding Initiatives
Electromagnetic inference (EMI) within the drone’s electronic housing was causing system failure due to its operation near or around cell phone towers, buildings, antennae, high-voltage power lines and other obstacles. Communication from ground systems were causing serious electromagnetic interference, affecting the drone’s performance.
The drone’s electronics were also producing excess heat as a result of the high processing power and strong rotors, so our customer was searching for a thermal management solution that would help to improve reliability and prevent premature failure.
