In an emerging all-electric, interconnected and all-smart world, EMC challenges are growing in number and complexity. Electronic products and vehicles now operate in crowded external environments with more connected devices and at higher frequencies (5G). Internal vehicle environments are also getting more complex – this is partly due to the kind of electronic power and intentional radiating devices now found in electric/connected vehicles.

Independent, reliable labs provide the regulatory expertise and EMC testing capabilities required to speed up product development and validation. Applus+ 3C Test has 15 EMC facilities spread throughout two sites in Silverstone Park (UK).

EMC testing for Automotive Components

A LEADING AUTOMOTIVE EMC TESTING LAB

We are one of the most advanced independent EMC labs in the UK, now supporting the transition to zero emissions. We have 30+ years of experience testing both electronic components and complete vehicles. 

EMC COMPLIANCE & PRE-COMPLIANCE

Pre-compliance testing is a cost-effective way of ironing out potential problems. An early diagnosis can reduce manufacturing costs and failures in the field. 

  • A friendly, flexible approach, supported by experts
  • Assistance throughout the entire EMC compliance process

COMMERCIAL & CONSUMER DEVICES

Our scope of accreditation covers EMC testing for a wide range of commercial and industrial equipment. This includes both for 3 m and 10 m measurements, destined to both small and large components.

REVERBERATION METHOD

In our reverberation chamber, manufacturers can test the radiated immunity of their equipment following industry standards in automotive, aerospace and defence that favour this method. 

  • IEC/EN 61000-4-21
  • RTCA/DO-160 (Section 20.6)
  • DEF STAN 59-411 (DRS02.B)
  • MIL-STD-461 (RS103)
