Affordable EMI receiver from MDL slashes test times
23 October 2020
Test times can be cut dramatically with a new high-performance EMI receiver from PMM.
Available from MDL Technologies, the ER8000 is an affordable, fully CISPR 16-1-1 compliant receiver, suitable for conducted or radiated emission test measurements from 9kHz up to 3GHz.
Its use of gapless FFT technology allows rapid troubleshooting since a fully compliant scan can take as little as two seconds in frequency band B (250 to 500MHz) and only one minute in bands C and D (500MHz to 1GHz / 1 to 2GHz).
A combined EMI receiver and spectrum analyser, it is ideal for use by product design departments and EMC compliance testing laboratories, while its compact size and robustness make it invaluable for in situ testing.
"FFT technology makes the ER8000 extremely fast, helping to speed up test times massively compared with traditional receivers," said MDL Managing Director Mark Lucock.
As well as CISPR 16-1-1, the unit is compliant with MIL-STD-461, ANSI C63.2 and FCC standards. Included are a built-in 16A LISN (Line Impedance Stabilisation Network) and a user port for connecting devices such as external LISNs and switching boxes for even faster testing times.
PMM's powerful Emission Suite software, which provides a full range of user-friendly functions for all EMI applications, is included free of charge.
The ER8000 is available in two models with frequency ranges of 9kHz to 30MHz and 9kHz to 3GHz respectively. Users can upgrade to the higher frequency range at any time.
