Access

A trolley with a load capacity of 150kg is available to transport equipment directly from the parking area to the test chambers. The chamber door openings are 90cm x 212cm. The doorway to the test area is 77cm x 199cm (which can be increased if required).

Test Chambers

Fully anechoic screened chamber: 6m x 4.8 x 2.4m for radiated emission and immunity tests, fully lined on all surfaces with ferrite tiles giving effective overall absorption to 1 GHz, and portable Emerson & Cuming Eccosorb panels are available as required to improve absorption up to several GHz. 32A filtered single phase supply (limited to 16A at present by chamber MCB - please ask if you need more), and 150kg capacity manual turntable with adjustable height (spacers provide 15cm, 50cm, 85cm and 120cm). We have 3 phase, 110VAC, and 60Hz options which can be connected to either chamber at the request of members.

Screened second chamber: 2.4 x 2.4 x 2.4m for conducted emission and immunity tests, with 32A filtered single phase supply (limited to 16A at present by chamber MCB - please ask if you need more).
