Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: In the last years, a large growth of radio-frequency electromagnetic interference was detected, especially in the frequency bands from 0.8 GHz up to 6 GHz. Tests of immunity of electrical devices must be carried out, because this type of interference can significantly affect their functionality. The aim of this paper is to explain the issue of electromagnetic susceptibility and describe the conditions of testing the immunity of electronic devices against the radio-frequency electromagnetic field according to the relevant electromagnetic compatibility standards. Also, sample electromagnetic immunity tests on the basic set of the intrusion and hold-up alarm system will be presented.
