Alarm systems including intruder and smoke

EMC compliance for the RCM, CE, FCC and ICES

Commonly used standards for EMC testing alarm systems and similar equipment.

Products include intruder alarm, intrusion alarm, fire alarm, hold-up alarm, fire detection, social alarm, CCTV systems, security, alarm transmission, and many more.

Note: Any product with a radio transmitter/receiver will also require additional wireless/radio performance testing for information on radio testing click here.
