Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Test Solutions


Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the ability of electrical equipment and systems to function acceptably in their electromagnetic environment.

Antennas

Antennas

In radio engineering, an antenna is the interface between radio waves propagating through space and electric currents moving in metal conductors, used with a transmitter or receiver. In transmission, a radio transmitter supplies an electric current to the antenna's terminals, and the antenna radiates the energy from the current as electromagnetic waves (radio waves).

Coupling / Decoupling Networks (CDNs)

CDNs

Coupling / Decoupling Networks are used to inject common mode disturbances to Equipment under Test (EuT). Further the CDNs provide sufficient decoupling between Auxiliary Equipment (AE) and disturbance signal.

Electronic probes

Current Probes

A test probe is a physical device used to connect electronic test equipment to a device under test (DUT). Test probes range from very simple, robust devices to complex probes that are sophisticated, expensive, and fragile.

EMC Chambers

An electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) or Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) chamber is a highly specialised piece of test equipment used in the testing of electronic devices against regulatory standards concerning both radiated and conducted radio frequency (RF) emissions and immunity.

Digital Pulse Generator

EMC Generators

A generator is a machine that converts one form of energy into another, especially mechanical energy into electrical energy, as a dynamo, or electrical energy into sound, as an acoustic generator.

EMC Test Software

EMI Software

EMI/EMC testing is a critical step in bringing a new product to market. EMC testing is critical for managing risk in medical device manufacturing. Devices must be able to work together in close environments without interference or noise compromising performance.

ESD Simulators

ESD Simulators

An ESD simulator, also known as an ESD gun, is a handheld unit used to test the immunity of devices to electrostatic discharge (ESD). These simulators are used in special electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) laboratories. ESD pulses are fast, high-voltage pulses created when two objects with different electrical charges come into close proximity or contact.

Ferrite Clamps / Absorbing Clamps

Ferrite Clamps / Absorbing Clamps

An absorbing clamp, also know as a ferrite clamp, or ferrite choke, is a device used to reduce the amount of RF (radio frequency) noise, or interference, in a wire that conducts electricity. absorbing clamps are typically used to improve the performance of sound systems, including microphones.

Immunity Test Systems

Immunity Test Systems

The purpose of RF immunity testing is to subject a product to a controlled RF stress that represents the likely level of stress that it might encountered in its operating environment, over a frequency range which is mostly dictated by practical aspects and experience of real-world problems.

Impedance Stabilisation Networks

ISNs

Impedance stabilisation networks (ISN, or with CISPR 16-1-2 called AAN: asymmetric artificial network) are defined for measuring of conducted common mode disturbances at information technology equipment (ITE) as required in CISPR 22 and CISPR 32.

Near Field Probes

Near field probes detect electrical or magnetic energy in the field directly around a device under test. These probes are commonly used to perform pre-compliance EMC testing on a product in order to detect the presence of electromagnetic interference, or EMI, exceeding relevant regulatory standards.

Pre-Amplifiers

RF preamplifiers are widely used to improve system sensitivity and can be especially useful in EMI/EMC radiated emissions test systems. The wide bandwidth antennas typically used for radiated emission measurements often have high transducer factors which can impact the overall measurement sensitivity for the system.

Voltage Interruption Simulators

Voltage Interruption Simulators

Electrostatic discharge and conducted noise are well-known to cause malfunctions of electronics equipments. In the meantime, instant interruption and fluctuation of the power supply voltages can be also the causes.

EMI Emissions Turntables

Turntables

When conducting tests for electromagnetic interference (EMI) emissions in your electrical equipment, you should consider a motorised wooden turntable - it supports and rotates your desktop or floor standing equipment and allows you to conduct effective and accurate EMC tests.

Transient Limiters

Transient Limiters

Transient limiters protect EMI receivers and spectrum analysers from transients, or random surges of energy. EMI receivers and similar electromagnetic susceptibility devices are routinely injected with bursts of energy as part of EMC testing, and as a result, may experience damage via intense feedback.
