IEC 61000 Testing / EN 61000 Testing

The IEC 61000 test standard is the base EMC standard for the European Union, from which many other EMC standards are generated. IEC 61000 / EN 61000 testing involves reviewing and applying the nine sections of the standard, which include but are not limited to functional safety, measurement uncertainty, emission limits, immunity limits, measurement techniques, testing techniques, installation guidelines and generic emission and immunity requirements in various environments.

Keystone Compliance specializes in IEC-61000 testing. As a regulatory compliance lab with five EMC test chambers, scheduling an IEC 61000 or EN 61000 test program does not typically require a long lead time. Our average, we schedule EN-61000 EMC tests within two weeks of the request. Having a dedicated report writer allows us to publish our EMC test reports as equally fast, generally distributing them one week after testing has been completed. What sets Keystone Compliance apart from other EMC test labs is our troubleshooting expertise. Having completed thousands of IEC 61000 test programs, out engineering team is quick to identify the sources of problems when they arise. Keystone is not an IEC 61000 test lab that states pass or fail. Instead, we provide value engineering throughout the test program. Our engineers are focused on helping every client meet the requirements of the EN 61000 test.
