Automotive EMC Testing

Automotive, Vehicle, ESA, automotive component EMC testing and compliance

Automotive testing at EMC Bayswater

We have experience with lots of various automotive standards from many automotive manufacturers and also many different versions. We have specialized equipment for radiated & conducted emissions, conducted & radiated immunity RF tests and many transient tests including ESD we are also CISPR 25 NATA accredited. We understand the requirements from the quoting stage all the way through the report stage.

To meet EMC compliance requirements specified by procuring agencies for modern complex automotive products, formal test plans are necessary.

Automotive EMC Testing at EMC Bayswater

EMC Bayswater can test components (ESA’s) or whole vehicles in our CISPR 25 facility. EMC Bayswater is NATA accredited to perform NATA testing in accordance with CISPR 25 and AS/NZS CISPR25. Some of the more common automotive standards the EMC Bayswater Croydon South Laboratory can test to are listed below:

 Automotive EMC testing – vehicles and components CISPR 25 Protection of on-board receivers AS/NZS 4601 Vehicle Immobilisers AS/NZS 3749.1 Intruder alarm systems – road vehicles ES-XT7T-1A278-AB Ford Motor Company GMW 3100, GMW 3097 General Motors ISO 7637-0,-1,-2,-3 Electrical disturbances (immunity) ISO/SAE J1113 Vehicle components (emissions and immunity) JIS D 5601 Japanese Industrial Standard ES-X82010/X46238 Mitsubishi TSCXXXXX Toyota Engineering standards 1579908, 515-0003 Volvo 2004/104/EC Automotive EMC Directive (e-mark pre-compliance).

There are many more automotive EMC  testing  standards that we perform testing in accordance with, so if the standard you require is not listed, please contact us to confirm our capability. If non compliance issues are found during testing, various EMC engineering solutions can be applied to achieve compliance. Engineering consulting can be provided if required.

Automated EMC testing software

Testing usually includes both emissions and immunity tests and we can usually cater for any special requirements such as automated immunity equipment under test monitoring, power supply requirements etc. We use specialized EMC emissions software that allows compliant measurements to be perform efficiently and outputs quality graphs and tabulated results.  We use specialized EMC immunity software for both conducted immunity and radiated immunity that allows us to integrate with many types communication ports including RS-232, CAN BUS, NI loggers, GPIB and many more that enables accurate performance review and compliance determination. This also allows accurate determination of failures that may occur and determine the threshold of susceptibility.

We have capability to perform the following Automotive testing:

  • Conducted Emissions (CE)
  • Conducted Immunity (CI)
  • Bulk Current Injection (BCI)
  • Radiated Emissions (RE) in our CIPSR 25 compliant chamber
  • Radiated Immunity (RI) – (ALSE)
  • Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
