Chinese EMC Trade Delegation Visits Chicago

A Chinese EMC trade delegation visited the United States over November 9-21, 2005 to tour EMC related companies and facilities. Originally invited by the 2005 IEEE International Symposium on EMC steering committee during the recent symposium in Chicago, logistics problems prevented the delegation from attending the symposium at that time.
The delegation, sponsored by the America and China Marketing Promotion Association, consisted of EMC professionals from all walks of industry, commerce, education, and technical societies from China, including the China Electrotechnical Society, Wahan High Voltage Research Institute, The Center for Space Science and Applied Research, China Academy of Science, Beijing Jiaotong University, China Ship Development and Design Center, and the Shanghai Electric Power Design Institute.
The purpose of the visit was to familiarize the Chinese officials with EMC related products, services, business practices, and technical liaisons in the United States. The delegation is very interested in establishing EMC related relationships and developing cooperation between the two countries in areas such as investment, product marketing, and technology in the EMC field.
Among the companies the delegation visited was D.L.S. Electronic Systems, Inc., a Wheeling, Illinois based EMC testing and consulting company. The delegation was able to review the workings of a large EMC testing laboratory, with various capabilities in the area of EMC testing, including FCC, CE, RTCA, and other global EMC testing standards.
During the visit, Don Sweeney, founder of D.L.S. Electronic Systems, founding member of the US Council of Independent Laboratories, and member of the IEEE EMC Society Board of Directors, provided a technical presentation on the merits of US testing laboratories to various testing requirements, including but not limited to US, Canadian, and European, and the advantages of joining the IEEE for professional knowledge and development.
