  • ESD, Burst, Surge, PowerFail and Variation
  • Ringwave and Damped Oscillatory Waves
  • RF parameters
  • DC voltage, DC current and DC High voltage
  • AC voltage and AC current
  • Resistance, inductance and capacitance
  • Frequency

Click here to see the scope of accreditation of the EM TEST accredited calibration laboratories.

The two laboratories of EM TEST in Switzerland and Germany have been accredited simultaneously and by the same authoritiy, the Swiss Accreditation Service SAS, to assure the application of equal and well co-ordinated procedures. Both laboratories are using the same brand and model of equipment which is continuously compared by internal comparative measurements in order to achieve the highest possible level of reliability for all EM TEST calibration services.

SAS is a signatory of the multilateral agreements of the European co-operation of Accreditation (EA) for calibration, testing, inspection and certification of products, personnel, quality and environmental management systems, of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) for certification of products, quality and environmental management systems and of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) for calibration and testing. Therefore SCS accredited calibration is internationally recognised as being equally valid same as accredited calibrations per NAMAS, DKD, COFRAC, A2LA etc.


Recognition of EM TEST AutoWave

EM TEST is very proud to announce the receipt of an important certification by the Russian Federal Agency of Technical Regulation and Metrology for our AutoWave. Experts of this government authority have evaluated the functional and metrological characteristics of the AutoWave and based on their results have honoured the AutoWave with the Quality Symbol. The AutoWave is recognized as an automated test system for the registration of on-board power supply phenomenon and the simulation of the various on-board power supply conditions.

This certificate is another proof of the quality and performance of EM TEST equipment we are offering in the field of EMC for more than 20 years with our continued efforts to be the leading supplier of equipment and systems for EMC testing.

EM TEST established branch in the USA

Very successful appearance at the EMV 2009 in Stuttgart

The EMV is Europe's leading exhibition for Electromagnetic Compatibility - the ideal platform for the dialogue between users in all fields of the electronic industry, the suppliers of EMC solutions and services and scientific experts of the EMC branch.

It goes without saying that EM TEST was also present with an outstanding booth and a huge number of competent EMC experts at the EMV 2009 in Stuttgart.

In the spotlight were numerous product innovations of EM TEST, for instance the brand new Ultra Compact Simulators N5 and N7. Once again EM TEST set the benchmark for tests of transients and Power Fail requirements. Both simulators have been increased-power rated and outperform their forerunners in almost all test levels clearly.

In addition, EM TEST presented a special highlight to the interested trade visitors: The new NetWave - a multifunctional AC/DC source up to 7,500 VA. The programmable AC and DC source with its wide frequency bandwidth supplies powerful waveform generation capabilities for different test requirements in the field of EMC and aviation testing.

Despite the current finance and economic crises, EM TEST has registered a great demand on the latest products, seminars and services of the company.
