interference

 [in″ter-fēr´ens]
1. opposition to or hampering of some activity.
2. impairment of cardiac impulse conduction due to refractoriness of the tissue; the refractoriness is a physiological response to passage of a preceding impulse.
3. a premature contact point on the occlusal surface of the teeth.
electromagnetic interference electrical signals of nonphysiological origin that may affect pacemaker function; they can either inappropriately inhibit pacemaker output or trigger unnecessary pulses. Pacemakers with bipolar leads are less sensitive to this.
occlusal i's areas of interference on teeth that hamper proper occlusion and smooth, gliding, harmonious jaw movements.

These elements come together in ways that may bypass or even resonate with your old power conditioners, making the test system even more susceptible to electrical noise and transients.
Optional EMI/RFI filtering protects connected equipment from electrical noise.
This is "quite a feat," the company comments, considering that "MSD ignition coils for high-powered racing cars can generate up to 50,000 volts of electrical potential in repeated bursts, producing intense electrical noise.
Electrical noise and interference was also a problem with early trials, but the HomePlug Alliance claims to have overcome this obstacle.
Because the pacemaker measures minute electrical signals from the heart, there is the potential that stray electrical noise in the environment could interfere with the pacemaker's normal function.
Their Sonic Intelligence signal-processing software is said to differentiate between true echoes from the material and false echoes generated by obstructions or electrical noise.
However, because of possible problems, such as electrical noise in the nanocontact, he doubts that the technique will prove practical.
Because the pacemaker measures minute electrical signals from the heart, there is the potential that stray electrical noise in the environment could interfere with the pacemaker's normal function, However, because pacemakers have been so carefully engineered, the chance of any interference is low.
