Once again the EMV 2023 demonstrated that electromagnetic compatibility is an essential topic. With new and more diverse areas of application such as electromobility and renewable energies, current challenges are rising for the EMC industry. At the trade fair, expert visitors and workshop participants had the opportunity to exchange ideas with experts on these and other issues.
In addition, around 2,600 visitors were able to obtain information from 116 national and international exhibitors on topics such as measuring equipment, EMC test service providers, equipment for EMC rooms, simulation software and shielding materials on an exhibition area of more than 4,300 m².
Key players in the industry such as AMETEK, Rohde & Schwarz, Phoenix Testlab or Frankonia were present to showcase their products at the industry hotspot for electromagnetic compatibility.
New and familiar formats to increase knowledge
There were some new program highlights at the trade forum this year. In addition to the exhibitors' product presentations, the event featured Special Sessions.
The "Ask the Experts" format offered visitors the opportunity to get answers to their individual technical questions on the topic of "EMC simulations" from four experts on the stage.
A further new highlight was a discussion forum focusing on the topic of "Radio protection & charging - coexistence of electromobility and radio services".
With a total of nearly 850 registrations, participants showed a high level of interest in the 32 workshops on offer. These workshops focused on expert knowledge from basic topics to specific applications of electromagnetic compatibility.
The following workshops were especially popular among the visitors:
- Strategies for analyzing emissions problems at the device and board level, Sven König, Langer EMV-Technik GmbH
- EMC filters, design, applications and tricks, Prof. Dr. Frank Leferink, University of Twente
- EMV von Hochvoltsystemen in Elektrofahrzeugen, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Richter, Westsächsische Hochschule Zwickau
Professor dr. Ir. Ing. Frank B.J. Leferink, Speaker at the EMV, Special Professor of the University of Twente and Technical Authority Electromagnetic Compatibility System Engineering at Thales emphasizes: “The EMV event is the only event in the world that focuses on the transfer of knowledge, especially leaning towards industry. This is a highly valuable exchange for all experts in the field regardless of whether they are newcomers in the field or experienced professionals - everyone can benefit from the unique offering of workshops and exhibition here”.
Together into the future
Young professionals particularly enjoyed the opportunity of meeting potential employers. The "Career Day" included a guided tour across the trade fair as well as professional career advice.
"We are very pleased that the overall concept of the event excited the EMC community so much. Once again the great response makes it clear to us how important it is to offer this platform and bring together the experts in the industry and enable professional exchange," concluded Petra Haarburger, President Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH.
Next year, the EMV - international trade fair with accompanying Congress for Electromagnetic Compatibility - will take place in Cologne from 12 - 14 March 2024.
