EMC Tests and Measurements

Support for all aspects of EMC tests and measurements

Do you need an EMC test or a special EMC test? TÜV NORD is the ideal partner for you. Our EMC Services department offers you a comprehensive range of measurement and testing services. We are accredited by the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS) and recognized as a technical service by the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). We carry out EMC tests on the basis of various internationally harmonized EMC standards.

All test equipment is constantly adapted to the latest technical requirements. Our goal is the precise result - this is the basis of the safety of your products and thus the basis of your customers' satisfaction.

Our test reports are recognized by official bodies and regulatory authorities worldwide. This applies - but is not limited - to Europe, USA (FCC B), Canada (ISED).

Testing services according to important EMC requirements

We test your electrical equipment and systems according to various directives, including in particular: 

  • Radio Equipment Directive (2014/53/EU)
  • EMC Directive (2014/30/EU)
  • Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC)

EMC measurement on site

TÜV NORD has a well-equipped EMC measuring vehicle so that various tests accompanying development and conformity tests can take place on site at the system or equipment to be tested.

The service package includes all necessary preliminary tests for immunity and emission of the electrical systems or installations to be tested in accordance with the prescribed standards, the test reports then serve as the basis for the CE declaration of conformity.

Electromagnetic interference - on-site analysis of equipment and systems

Installers and operators of equipment, installations and systems often have EMC problems when highly sensitive electronics and powerful assemblies with high interference emissions run in close proximity to each other. Here we investigate the existing interference potential (interference voltages, interference currents, interference field strengths) and make statements about a possible influence on sensitive systems in the environment. The result is usually provided in the form of a test report or expert opinion with advice on how to solve the problem.
