How is the Electromagnetic Compatibility and Magneto-static Laboratory equipped?
The EMC laboratory consists of a shielded and anechoic test room (LxWxH 8.55m x 7.5m x 4.75m) and a shielded control room (LxWxH 3.45m x 6.6m x 2.9m). It is equipped with absorbers materials and sliding doors and provides an electromagnetic wave attenuation of 120dB at 10 GHz.
The environmental conditions are controlled in a temperature range of 20 - 24 deg C and relative humidity ranging between 40% and 55%. The test room is equipped with a fire detection system and a fire extinguishing system with inert gas. Electrical power is provided through insulation transformers and AC filter to eliminate the transfer of disturbances in both directions, into the test room and out of the test room.
Measurement equipment available in the EMC lab consists of:
- test tables with copper ground plane (anechoic room and control room)
- current probes, field probes, sensors, various antennas up to 18 GHz
- high end measurement receiver 30 Hz - 26 GHz
- spectrum analyser 15 kHz - 3 GHz
- spectrum/network analyzer between 10 Hz and 500 MHz
- various high performance digital signal analysers (oscilloscopes)
- various signal generators
- various rf power amplifiers
- rf power meter
- data logger
- high precision voltmeter
Mobile Coil Facility (MCF), consisting of:
- two pairs of squared Helmholtz coils for compensation (70cm x 70 cm x 70 cm)
- one pair of perm/deperm coils (4 Hz / 0.4 mT)
- two 3-axis magnetometers with PC interface
- turntable with motor drive, angular encoder and PC interface
- two precision current sources (driving the compensation coils)
- low frequency power amplifier and control electronics to generate the perm/ deperm signal shape
