EMI Testing Lab in Orlando, FL
There are several reasons to trust NTS above all other labs when you need fast, reliable and cost-effective EMI testing services. First, our NTS facilities form the largest network of EMC/EMI testing laboratories in North America. This means we have the experience to deliver customized testing services designed to fully meet the requirements of FCC standards, DoD military specifications and CE certification for the European Union and beyond.
In addition, backed by our A2LA electrical 0214.47 and mechanical 0214.46 accreditations, NTS Orlando maintains five shielded enclosures, as well as a broad variety of test equipment to help you achieve your Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) test objectives. Our experienced engineers and technical specialists execute tests related to defense (MIL-STD-461) and aerospace (RTCA/DO 160) standards as well as a variety of similar specifications.
Our facility is accredited by A2LA to the ISO/IEC 17025 Standard for Laboratory Accreditation, which means our testing methods, data collection and equipment calibration are all verified by third-party independent auditors.
With the latest EMC/EMI equipment that is capable of testing to some of the most extreme limits, our EMI testing capabilities include but are not limited to:
- Servicing the Defense, Aerospace, Space, and Consumer Electronics industries
- Radiated Susceptibility ~ 200 V/m, frequency range 10 kHz to 40 GHz,
- HIRF Testing 100 MHz – to 1o 18 GHz up to 7200 V/m pk
- Radiated Emissions ~ 30 Hz to 40 GHz
- Compact 3 meter screen room
- MIL/AERO semi-anechoic chambers
- Extended ground plane test beds
- Indirect Lightning-Single stroke, multiple stroke, multiple burst, Level 5 DO-160
- AC & Telecom port surge, Electrical Fast Transients, Ring-wave, and bust testing
- Electrical power characteristics testing
- Shielding effectiveness, transfer impedance
- Electrostatic discharge up to 30 kV
- Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) to 50 kV/m
- RADHAZ analysis
When it comes to the latest and most reliable testing methods, you can count on us to be at the forefront of development. This includes testing for the indirect effects of lightning, which in real-world instances, create intense electromagnetic fields that can result in severe damage to sensitive components and systems up to a kilometer away from where the lightning strike occurred.
In our ongoing efforts to meet the needs of our customers, we are adding the equipment necessary for indirect effects lightning testing at our Orlando testing facility. Testing will be conducted to RTCA/DO-160 and MIL-STD-461G, all waveforms up to level 5 section 22, and ARP 5414 Section 6.
Our testing methods are informed by ANSI, IEEE, RTCA, SAE, EUROCAE, U.S. MIL-STDs and various other leading industry standards. Our indirect-effects testing lab in Orlando, FL, houses equipment that is capable of comprehensive transient and field analysis, ranging from individual circuits to fully operational interconnected systems.
To help determine the cumulative indirect effects of lightning strikes on your equipment, our engineers are able to apply tests that include the following methods:
- Transformer injection
- Pin injection
- Ground-circuit injection
- Capacitive injection
- Field immersion techniques
Environmental Testing in Orlando
Environmental simulation testing forms the backbone of product reliability. By first determining whether a product is robust enough to function properly in its intended environment of use, developers and manufacturers can still make any necessary changes and modifications to its design, materials and assembly before its release. After all, with sizable financial and reputational costs on the line whenever new products or product lines are made available, taking full advantage of environmental testing is simply prudent.
In addition to helping improve a product’s reliability, environmental testing offers businesses several other benefits. For some organizations — like businesses that supply products to commercial aircraft manufacturers or the military — it is simply a requirement, such as the environmental testing required for compliance with DoD MIL-STD-810. In other instances, it is part of performing due diligence during a product’s development and, as a result, adds a layer of protection against future litigation.
Most significantly, environmental testing also provides businesses looking to develop a best-in-class product with the data they need to correct any design flaws early in the R&D process.
NTS’s lab in Orlando, FL, offers temperature, humidity, altitude, rapid decompression, thermal vacuum, explosive atmosphere and much more. To see the full spectrum of our environmental testing services, click here.
International Approvals and Certification
Getting your product into international markets can be difficult—particularly during a pandemic. Plus, geopolitical dynamics fundamentally change the type of markings you might need to get your product into a new country. In the UK, for example, Brexit means that you will need a UKCA marking to sell your product. Meanwhile, new criteria for your product in Russia, Ukraine, India, Brazil, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates is necessary. Are you aware of these changes? The good news is that a team of experts is dedicated to helping you track every minor change to help you secure regulatory approval in global markets. The goal is to streamline the process for entering international markets to avoid delays and duplicative testing. The international approval services include the following:
- A Single-Point-of-Contact for 180 Countries
- In-country Testing and Approvals
- Globally Recognized Test Reports
- In-Country Representation
- On-going Compliance Tracking
- Compliance Strategy for Faster Certification
