Several basic electromagnetic interference (EMI) principles determine whether an equipment will experience EMI or electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) as a result of exposure to the electromagnetic (EM) fields that are present in the equipment environment. These basic EMI principles are influenced by the way that the system is configured, including the cables. To achieve EMC, it is necessary to be careful to configure the cables in a way that does not create EMI problems. The basic EMI considerations and the resulting impact of the configuration of the cables are discussed in this chapter.
