New ‘In-Situ’ EMC Service Launches in the US

SGS is pleased to announce the launch of new mobile units for delivering in-situ Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) testing services to sites across the US.

Through investment in state-of-the-art mobile testing equipment, we have extended the capabilities of our Electrical & Electronics (EE) regulatory compliance testing services to include the new requirements for semiconductor manufacturing plants, site surveys and Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) field labeling services for product safety certification. The new in-situ EMC testing service is the ideal solution when the logistics of moving the equipment to be tested to an accredited testing laboratory are not practical.

John Ciliege, Global Head of NRTL, said: 'Our knowledgeable specialist teams are taking EMC testing from our state-of-the-art labs to manufacturing sites across the USA. We are delighted to extend the range of services we can provide to large equipment manufacturers, allowing us to meet increased market demand while helping clients to streamline and speed up their routes to new markets.

'Thanks to investment in state-of-the-art, mobile testing equipment, our clients can save time and money on the shipping of products and personnel to our labs. It also means we can support manufacturers of larger and installed equipment, where transportation to our EMC test chambers is challenging or impossible.'

Onsite EMI and EMC Testing Services

This investment allows us to offer onsite EMI/EMC testing, product safety, and site survey services at a customer's own premises against the following standards:

  • CE
  • FCC
  • IEC 61000-6-1
  • IEC 61000-6-2
  • IEC 61000-6-3
  • IEC 61000-6-4
  • SEMI F47

Products tested include:

  • Heavy and large equipment
  • Robotics
  • Packing and printing machinery
  • Large vehicles
  • Industrial machinery
  • Semiconductors
  • Production lines
  • Renewable energy equipment
  • Inverters

Trusted means Tested

International EMC standards regulate electromagnetic emissions from a piece of equipment and ensure resistance to electromagnetic interference. EMC testing is a requirement for almost every product that works with electricity, as electromagnetic interference can cause a product to malfunction or interfere with other electric devices.
