For many businesses, particularly small ones, EMC testing prior to CE marking can be an expensive headache. If EMC compliance is not built in at the design stage, test failure and re-engineering at a later stage is a far bigger expense, especially if it delays a product launch. Morgan-Smith Electronics Ltd understands these problems, having been established for nearly 35 years, and in that time developing and manufacturing products for a variety of niche markets. Patents applied for have covered audio cueing and data compression techniques. Products designed and manufactured by the company have included professional audio, security, industrial computers, digital speech, and instrumentation.
From this experience was born the EMC Test Club, which exists to make it as easy as possible for you to ensure compliance with relevant standards for EMC emissions and immunity, for European and world markets. The testing is done in a calibrated and controlled environment, by customers who will receive training in the use of EMC test equipment and facilities, and will be guided as necessary thereafter to achieve top quality results at a sensible cost. For engineers who have not been involved with RF measurements before, the prospect of becoming ‘experts’ at short notice might seem daunting. However, the EMCEngineer software used by the EMC Test Club is designed for ease of use, and wherever possible operation is relatively intuitive. The screened rooms and anechoic lining mean that users need have no worries about inconsistencies due to ambient interference or reflections.
Please give us a call or e-mail us if you need to know any more about the Club! However, there is no substitute for seeing for yourself, and if you would like to visit us, we will be delighted to give you a demonstration of the Test Club facilities; bring your product with you and we can give it a free emissions test too! Just call to make an appointment, so we can make sure the test rooms are available.
The Club is situated at Hatfield, Herts, by junction 4 of the A1(M); it is accessible by road from the motorway network, by rail via Hatfield station on the East Coast main line (London Kings Cross), and by air through London Luton airport, which connects with the UK regions and continental Europe.
