Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA – March 24, 2011: Intertek opens a new EMC lab in Grand Rapids. This new state-of-the-art EMC laboratory features four test chambers to perform electrical interference and immunity evaluations in semi-anechoic environments, with immunity test field strengths. Intertek can also perform 2 methods of radiated susceptibility, ALSE and Reverb.
The Grand Rapids location is the only test lab to have EMxpert capabilities, an EMC/EMI diagnostic tool from EMSCAN which will help Intertek clients resolve EMC and EMI issues.
EMSCAN is the world leading developer of FAST magnetic very-near-field measurement technologies and applications since 1989, providing real-time test solutions to antenna and PCB designers and verification engineers, without the need for a chamber.
The EMxpert, a compact EMC and EMI diagnostic tool, and the RFxpert, an antenna measurement tool, enable engineers to quickly optimize their designs. EMSCAN solutions dramatically increase designer productivity and substantially reduce time-to-market and project development costs.
