Get your electronic products closer to zero defects with at an accelerated EMC test, which tests at very high levels of electromagnetic noise.
You can achieve significant competitive advantages by testing your products at extra high levels of electromagnetic noise. In situations of using the product, electromagnetic noise is frequently at a level far above that which is tested as a standard today – simply because, in real-life situations there are many mobile telephones, routers, RF transmitters and other equipment in the environments where the hardware or software may be used.
Using an accelerated EMC test at DELTA, the product to be tested is influenced by test levels far above the applicable EMC regulatory requirements and without being limited to conventional testing standards. An accelerated EMC test therefore shows you whether your product or equipment can fully interoperate with other equipment. Especially for devices that are central to the safety or your customers’ operations, it is appropriate to test using these high levels. EMC stands for Electromagnetic Compatibility and expresses the product’s ability to electromagnetically work with other electrical or electronic equipment without interference or breaking down.
At DELTA, we can test your equipment’s immunity to very high field strengths of up to 1000 V/m, while the market standard often just tests at 3-10 V/m, depending on the specific equipment. We also test your equipment’s immunity to very fast, high or energy rich transients on the cables. If your equipment or installation is too large or immobile, we can also test it on-site. Thus we find the product’s weakest link and identify its EMC robustness.
With an accelerated EMC test you will gain a variety of strategic advantages:
More reliable operation of products and equipment
Lower risk of complaints and repair costs
Improved knowledge about EMC to improve your company’s EMC design in future
Clear documentation to authorities, certifying bodies and customers.
The accelerated EMC tests is carried out in DELTA’s Reverberation Chamber in Aarhus.
The test object in the test chamber should be configured with robust and simple auxiliary equipment, which allows the test object to run a typical operating program over several hours. There is no access to the chamber during the test, but it can be followed via a shielded camera.
Before initiating the test, you will be given more detailed specifications on the setup from DELTA.
