Our test facilities

We have three environments that are available for booking. These utilise state-of-the-art equipment and are managed and run by a team of skilled engineers.

EMC Chamber

We operate a compliant EMC test chamber, which is available for manufacturers who want to perform emissions and immunity tests at a distance of 3m.

EMC Immunity

We provide Electrostatic Discharge, AC Surge and AC and Signal Line Transients bench testing.

Environmental

We provide Climatic Tests for testing the influence of temperature and humidity on the properties, function and lifespan of products.

EMC Chamber Tests

The following tests can be booked for this environment:

Radiated emissions tests – 30 MHz to 6 GHz

Conducted emissions tests – 9 kHz to 30 MHz

Radiated immunity tests – 80 MHz to 6 GHz at 3V/m and 10V/m

Conducted immunity tests – 0.15 MHz to 80 MHz at 3V and 10V

Typical product standards:

EN 55032 – Electromagnetic compatibility of multimedia equipment — Emission Requirements

EN 55024 – Information technology equipment – Immunity characteristics – Limits and methods of measurement
