Oversimplification of EMC filter selection to reduce size and cost can often be a false economy as anticipated performance may not be achieved. EMC design principles are best considered at the equipment design stage, where good mechanical design including component layout and cable routing can help reduce EMC problems at source. Even with good EMC practice, it is invariably necessary to provide a certain amount of filtering. Cost and size considerations will usually encourage the use of a simple filter design. This can sometimes be a false economy as simple designs may not always give expected results. This can have serious compliance implications if EMC specifications have to be met.
