Certification Lab 

To the Electromagnetic Compatibility Laboratory, with annexed semi-anechoic chamber, can be performed several test related to civil or military application.

The EMC Laboratory provides advice on standards and EMC testing from the earliest stages of development and until the final product certification.


To the EMC Laboratory can be performed tests according to European Directives, Military and Avionic standard.


A large semi-anechoic chamber (m 16x8x6) with an equally large access door (m 4.5x9) allows to accommodate also equipment of considerable size. Furthermore the presence of a forced ventilation system allows to combustion engine equipment to normally operate during testing.

A turntable (3 mt diameter - 2000Kg capacity) and an antenna positioning tower (1÷4m height) lets out test according to the civil standard.

Three shielded rooms, adjacent and to the anechoic room connected, allow to optimize the positioning of the equipment under test and relate control or support instruments.

Adequate instruments ensure a comprehensive coverage of EMC tests, also in terms of power and frequencies:

  • Radiated emissions: 14KHz÷40GHz

  • Conducted emissions: 16Hz ± 1 GHz

  • Radiated immunity:  200V/m@1 m (14KHz÷18GHz), 100V/m@1 m (18GHz÷26GHz), 5V/m@1 m (26GHz÷40GHz)

  • Conducted immunity: 30Kz÷400MHz
