Pre-compliance EMC Testing & Development

EMC Test site and Chamber & facility hire

Why do pre-compliance EMC testing?

EMC pre-compliance testing can be a cost-effective approach to developing a product. Helping to meet functional and mandatory compliance requirements. Pre-compliance EMC testing through the product development stages can reduce future EMC and EMI issues. Allowing the development of EMC mitigation techniques to be incorporated or refined. Reducing the total project build cost of a product. EMC pre-compliance testing should be and is advised to all customers. To reduce costs for re-spin and re-working of final stage products. Reduce the final product to market time. Also, reduce the possibility of consumer and market issues that may arise. Product recalls is a huge expense and can damage long-term company credit-ability.

Radiated Emissions pre-compliance testing

Our most popular EMC pre-compliance testing service is emissions testing. Radiated emissions have been the most popular. We can perform EMC pre-compliance testing suited to your needs. If its a simple radiated RF pre-scan or a full EMC pre-compliance test. We have a fully calibrated indoor Open Area Test Site (iOATS). Which is the same chamber we do our formal electromagnetic compatibility testing in! Our qualified engineers who can advise on EMC and radio standards. Along with EMI and EMC mitigation techniques. Use our experience to help achieve your product compliance requirements.

Conducted Emissions and Immunity testing pre-compliance testing

We offer pre-compliance conducted emissions testing services. Along with the full suite of basic immunity testing for CE Electromagnetic Compatability compliance testing. Including the following EMC pre-compliance testing services:

  • Electrostatic discharge testing (ESD)
  • Electrical fast transients (EFT)
  • Voltage dips (brownouts)
  • Voltage interruptions (brown and blackout)
  • Radiated RF immunity
  • Conducted RF immunity
  • Magnetic field immunity including pulsed fields.

EMC testing Facility hire at EMC Bayswater

We can perform pre-compliance EMC testing of radiated emissions with various EMC testing costs. The cost reflects the accuracy required or to suit budgetary need:

1) Formal indoor Open Area Test Site – iOATS. EMC Testing performed with a CISPR compliant receiver, fully FCC and CISPR 16-1 calibrated chamber. Using only filly calibrated equipment. including cables, attenuators, EMI receivers, antennas, RF pre-amps and so on. Fully fibre optic controlled 1.2m diameter turntable. With a fibre optic controlled 1m to 4m antenna height searching mast. Which includes bore-sighting antenna capability for FCC and ICES testing above 1GHz. Fully compliant EMI software for automated and semi-automated testing.

2) Semi-anechoic chamber, the test site is not ANSI C63.4 (FCC/ICES) or CISPR 16-1 calibrated. EMC Testing is performed with a CISPR compliant receiver. But has no height searching antenna mast and no turntable. The antenna may not be calibrated

3) Semi-anechoic chamber with equipment as above. Except performed with a Hewlett Packard spectrum analyser. This spectrum analyser does not a Quasi-peak detector.

There are pricing scales associated with each option. Please contact us for further details and availability. You can choose the option that best suits your needs and budget. Including hourly rates and discounted daily rates for even cheaper EMC testing.

We can also perform pre-compliance EMC Testing of conducted emissions and immunity testing. testing is undertaken in one of our other semi-anechoic chambers or shielded rooms.

We can accommodate your pre-compliance needs. And advise on the best practice to reduce the pre-compliance testing cost.

Pre-compliance testing at EMC Bayswater

EMC Bayswater in Croydon South offers pre-compliance EMC testing services. Providing EMC testing to suit your requirements and your budget. Pre-compliance can minimise costs in cases where products are found to be non-compliant prior formal testing. Before submitting to a formal EMC testing program consider some testing. It may also help reduce time to market. We can also perform immunity testing and other RF or similar pre-compliance EMC testing.

Note: Pre-compliance EMC testing results cannot be used for formal test reports. We provide data and graphs.
