EMCenter simplifies EMC and RF measurements

October 07, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
ETS-Lindgren has announced an integrated test centre and controller incorporating powerful software to give reproducible EMC and RF test results without the complexity or cost of large rack-mounted systems.

The EMCenter Model 7000-001 is a compact, modular platform consisting of an integrated micro-controller, modular chassis and a selection of up to seven plug-in card modules that provides repeatable, reproducible EMC and RF test results without the complexity or cost of large rack-mounted systems.

The Plug and Play features – each one an optimised RF test instrument – create the system needed in a space that is only 3U high. The range of available plug-in cards includes modules for field probes, power meters, signal generators, RF switching, turntable and mast controller as well as analogue fibre optic links. Engineers can link with external analysers, amplifiers, probes, antennas, or other equipment via available RS-232, LAN or IEEE-488 interfaces. Tests can be carried out according to ANSI, CISPR, IEC, MIL-STD, SAE, CTIA and other standards for telecom, commercial electronics, military, aerospace, and automotive applications. Software plays a big role in the EMCenter in order to automate RF testing. It supports the TILE! and EMQuest software, and other PC compatible RF software packages
