Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Product Testing
EMI examines the unintentional generation of electromagnetic energy from the product under test that could affect nearby electronics or communication devices. EMI also examines the affect on the product under test from external sources of electromagnetic energy.
EMI identifies electromagnetic energy sources emitted from the electronic device under test in an effort to reduce potential interference to other equipment or communications, and to determine how susceptible the equipment under test may be to electromagnetic disturbances.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Product Engineering Evaluation
Our team of experienced EMC engineers understands the intricate problems that can occasionally arise during the testing process. Our engineers work with clients to evaluate and troubleshoot non-compliance issues that may prevent a product from obtaining EMC compliance. This is an added value provided by EMI.
In-Situ Testing (Testing at client or end-user location)
For clients who need EMC testing performed on large equipment, our team of engineers can make visits to perform in-situation/on-site testing. No matter the size or scope of a client's project, our dedicated and knowledgeable engineering staff can provide the level of technical expertise needed to satisfy testing needs.
Radio Frequency (RF) Surveys
RF surveys can be performed over wide frequency ranges to determine RF ambient levels covering frequency ranges of interest at various locations of the designated testing area. Typical testing is to determine RF ambient levels over certain frequency ranges at various locations of the designated area.
RF Shield Room Shield Effectiveness Testing
RF shield effectiveness testing of shield rooms is performed to assure that a certain level of radio frequency (RF) signal reduction is attained.
RF Shield Room or Open Area Test Site (OATS) Volumetric Normalized Site Attenuation (VNSA) Evaluation
VNSA measurements are performed to determine the suitability of the test chamber or OATS for making RF radiated emissions measurements. Testing is performed as per ANSI C63.4 standard.
