In situ EMC test equipment

EMC labs

Test equipment developed at PTB allows, for the first time, components and systems to be tested with regard to their electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) without needing a special stationary laboratory. The main characteristics of this equipment are its simple operation and short measuring times. Diverse carrier frequencies enable the simulation of practically all relevant emitters of elec-tromagnetic disturbance. Via various antennae, the susceptibility to disturbances in connection with high-frequency fields is tested in situ in short measuring intervals. As the system is particularly operatorfriendly, the test can even be carried out without the operator having to be specially trained on it. (Technology Offer #0189)
