EMC Laboratory Cologne

Our EMC test laboratory in Cologne

We specialize in testing electrical and electronic equipment in the areas of radio, EMC and electrical safety. We advise you on which regulations and standards apply to your device and take over the complete processing of the services you require. This way, you ensure legally compliant market access. Worldwide, we support you in the testing and international certification of devices that use radio modules or radio services. This includes, for example, applications with RFID, Bluetooth and Wireless LAN or radar applications of the frequencies 24 GHz and 77 GHz. In terms of measurement technology, we cover the range up to 300 GHz. But of course we also test electronic devices without radio modules in the areas of EMC and electrical safety. Our test laboratory is accredited by the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS) according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025
