Radiated Susceptibility Laboratory

The Centre has the test and measurement facility equipped with a Shielded Semi Anechoic Chamber for conducting Radiated Susceptibility tests. The facility supports Radiated Susceptibility tests right from 10kHz to 18 GHz.

10 meter ChamberThe Centre is equipped with apparatus including Signal Generators for the frequency ranges of 10 MHz - 21.6 GHz and 9 kHz - 2.2 GHz. Also has got RF Power Amplifiers of frequency ranges (80 MHz - 1 GHz, 500W), 10 kHz-30 MHz, 1.5 - 400 MHz, 800 MHz - 4.2 GHz and 4.2 - 18 GHz

The facility includes different types of antennae namely Passive Loop Antenna (1 kHz - 30 MHz), Biconilog antenna (26 MHz - 2 GHz), Double Ridged Waveguide Horn Antenna (1 GHz - 18 GHz). Field Strength upto 100 V/m for the frequency range of 200 MHz - 1 GHz, 50 V/m for the frequency range of 80 MHz - 1 GHz, 30 V/m for the frequency range of 1 GHz - 13 GHz, 10 V/m for the frequency range of 10 kHz - 80 MHz can be generated. Field Uniformity for the test facility is better than 6dB for 75% or more points as per the requirement of the IEC 61000-4-3 standard.

The centre has got Transverse Electromagnetic (TEM) Cell to carry Radiated Susceptibility test for the frequency ranges of DC - 200 MHz and DC - 800 MHz. Field Strength upto 200 V/m can be generated using this TEM cell which is required for Automotives such as Electronic Sub Assembly (ESA).

The radiated emission test is done using automation software developed and validated in-house. The software allows for precise contral of the test parameters through out the testing. Helmholtz coil designed and developed In - House is available for Power Frequency Magnetic Field Immunity test conforming to IEC 61000-4-8.
