Emissions and Immunity EMC Testing
We offer a lower cost EMC Testing service by specialising in smaller equipment (up to around a meter cubed or 18U rack) and site testing (for larger equipment). By operating in this area only (not having a chamber you can drive a car in!) we have lower overheads, and our charge out costs are lower.
Our EMC GTEM test cell provides a fully calibrated and traceable test facility for the fast, accurate measurement of the EMI/EMC performance of your products. The test cell provides the capabilities to test to IEC 61000-4-3, domestic, commercial, medical and industrial levels. For emissions and immunity, these cells meet the requirements of IEC 61000-4-20 (The cell is fully correlated and traceable to a 3 Meter OATS). We can test over a wide frequency range, from 30MHz to well above 3GHz.
On Site EMC Testing for large equipment
We can perform EMC testing at your location based around our fully calibrated reference source (ERS) to provide a higher level of integrity to emissions measurements not conducted in a test cell. Many immunity tests can also be carried out on-site, although Radiated/Conducted Immunity and Surge Magnetic Field testing is not recommended.

Immunity testing is also a vital part of ‘functional safety’ (SIL) as immunity is often vital to avoid common mode failures. ATEX now has mandatory functional safety requirements for safety systems or protective systems.
