Electromagnetic Compatibility

10-meter Semi-Anechoic Chamber We provide complete product testing to Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) regulations to ensure the electrical equipment is safe and does not interfere with the normal operation of other equipment.

GPCL offers the following EMC services:
  • EMC services for designers and manufacturers during development of prototypes or improvement of existing products.
  • Field testing services and assistance.
  • Design consultation by evaluating your product, prototype, or design for potential EMC problems and providing solutions and alternate designs when applicable.

5-meter Semi-Anechoic Chamber

We have the following test facilities available for EMC final compliance testing:
  • Four 3-meter Semi-Anechoic Chambers constructed of steel and lined with ferrite tiles and RF absorber cones. These chambers are designed for radiated emissions and immunity testing and meet the site attenuation requirements of ANSI C63.4, EN 55022, and field uniformity requirements of EN 61000-4-3/IEC 61000-4-3.
  • One 5-meter Semi-Anechoic Chamber constructed of steel and lined with ferrite tiles and RF absorber cones. It is designed for radiated emissions and immunity testing and meets the site attenuation requirements of ANSI C63.4, EN 55022, and field uniformity requirements of EN 61000-4-3/IEC 61000-4-3.
  • One 10-meter Semi-Anechoic Chamber constructed of steel and lined with ferrite tiles and RF absorber cones. It is designed for radiated emissions and immunity testing and meets the site attenuation requirements of ANSI C63.4,EN 55022, and field uniformity requirements of EN 61000-4-3/IEC 61000-4-3.
