The 3mSAC is developed with the focus on compliance testing emission and susceptibility at 3 m test distance. The complete system is designed for multi purpose use. International, US, European and various national standards are covered. The products that is able to be tested range from telecom equipment, household equipment, automotive components, Industrial Scientific and Medical equipment (ISM) as well as Information Technology Equipment (ITE). Listing of the 3mSAC as FCC facility, getting European accreditation of VCCI recognition is equally possible. The 3mSAC combines full conformity with standards, with an enhanced frequency range up to 18 GHz. Consisting of a fully modular system for shielding and absorbers, the installed chamber can be set up stepwise and adapted to upcoming normative.
Radiated emission measurements for compliance testing, development and quality control at 3 m distance are perfectly covered by the 3mSAC. The 3mSAC complies with ANSI C63.4 and CISPR 16-1-4 for a 2.0 m quiet zone diameter. In additional, the 3mSAC performs perfectly up to 18 GHz.
The 3mSAC features superior performance for radiated immunity testing. The accuracy achieved according IEC 1000-4-3 and EN 61000-4-3 in a 1.5 x 1.5 m plane at 3 m test distance fully complies with the a.m. standards. In additional, the 3mSAC performs perfectly up to 18 GHz. Radiation
The performance achieved according to ANSI C63.4 in a quiet zone diameter of 2 m at 3 m test distance is better than +/- 3 dB and the guaranteed values for site VSWR is 6.0 dB or better.
The accuracy achieved according IEC 1000-4-3 and EN 61000-4-3 in a 1.5 x 1.5 m plane at 3 m test distance complies with the a.m. standards. As required 75% of the 16 points are within the 0 to +6 dB accuracy.
