Testimonials

We are very happy with the service and co-operation we get here. It's a two-way thing. Improvements? No improvements to suggest really, we get just what we need.

We test quite frequently, when a colleague first visited he was very impressed with James going through everything with him, so we always use 3C Test. We are very pleased with the way we have been treated, staff always helpful. You have a really good crowd here, nice friendly atmosphere!

Our Testing was great - could not have been better, we were well looked after ? Very efficient! Your engineer was absolutely outstanding! No improvements to suggest we were happy with everything and our vehicle passed which made it even better.

3C Test offers Technical Advice and guidance which we do not get elsewhere. Reliable, good quality testing at a competitive price. The engineers use the accurate data we have acquired in an intelligent way to overcome problems.

Suggestions for Improvements? Nothing can be improved, you have been spot on with everything, excellent, and your engineer has tried everything he can to help us. Your service has been far and beyond what we had asked for.

Presentation is important, the grandeur and opulence and the fresh clear-cut feel of your building is superb. Along with the new facilities it is exactly what we wanted for our testing. We are testing to stringent spec and the automotive connection here is important to us! In the past we have built up a good relationship with 3C through e mails and quite complex negotiations regarding our requirements. I enjoy coming here.

                     

     Automotive EMC Testing - EMC Vehicle Testing  

EMC Automotive Component Testing

With radio communications on the increase and the reliance on technology for vehicle control systems the EMC phenomena is a growing hazard to the safety of the driver and passengers of any modern motor vehicle.

Powerful radio signals and other in vehicle electrical occurrences (such as transients) can adversely effect any electrical/electronic system fitted to a vehicle. To combat this, the European Union has issued a specification (Reg 10.05) to help control this environment. Further, the major vehicle manufacturers insist that suppliers of electrical and electronic systems fitted to a vehicle should meet their own EMC standards. These standards require testing above and beyond the legal requirements to ensure as much as possible the safety of all road users as well as producing a reliable vehicle for their customers. In the increasingly competitive market, some of these manufacturers have asked their component suppliers to take on board the implications of the EMC phenomena and to test to their manufacturers specification at an accredited test laboratory.
