IEC 61000-4-3 Testing – Radiated Electromagnetic Field Immunity

IEC 61000-4-3 Testing – Radiated Electromagnetic Field Immunity

The scope of the IEC 61000-4-3 test standard and EN 61000-4-3 test standard is to establish a common reference for evaluating the immunity of electrical and electronic equipment when subjected to radiated, radio-frequency electromagnetic fields. The IEC 61000-4-3 test method describes a consistent method to assess the immunity of an equipment or system against a defined phenomenon.

EN 61000-4-3 testing labs address immunity tests related to the protection against RF electromagnetic fields from any source. Particular considerations are devoted to the protection against radio-frequency emissions from digital radiotelephones and other RF emitting devices.

Most electronic equipment is, in some manner, affected by electromagnetic radiation. This radiation is frequently generated by such general purpose sources as the small hand-held radio transceivers that are used by operating, maintenance and security personnel, fixed station radio and television transmitters, vehicle radio transmitters, and various industrial electromagnetic sources. In addition to electromagnetic energy deliberately generated, there is also radiation caused by devices such as welders, thyristors, fluorescent lights, switches operating inductive loads, etc.

Keystone Compliance has developed into one of the best IEC 61000 4 3 test labs in the country by focusing on compliance. Our engineers thoroughly understand the requirements of EN 61000 4 3 testing. We work with manufacturers to identify ways to overcome testing challenges. Whether it be addressing the gaskets, cables, power supplies, shielding or other components, our team of expert engineers strives to assist every manufacturer with having their device meet the IEC61000-4-3 test requirements. This approach has grown our EMC compliance lab to now include five separate EMC test chambers including three 3-meter test chambers.
