Pre-Scan Emissions/Immunity Chamber

Description

prescan emissions chamber

3m pre-scan Immunity/Emissions semi-anechoic chambers are designed to perform ANSI C63.4/CISPR 16-1-4 and IEC 61000-4-3 compliant radiated immunity and emissions measurements.  When using this chamber for ANSI C63.4 pre-compliant radiated emissions pre-scan measurements there’s a limited scan height.

C-LCI offers (2) different pre-scan models; our smaller version measures 22’L x 10’W x 10’H and comes only ferrite lined. With ferrite only the chamber can test from 26MHz-1GHz. Our larger model comes with a combination of ferrite tile plus Cuming Microwave’s C-RAM HFP hybrid absorbers; absorbers specifically tuned to receive the hand off and pick up frequencies ≥ ~1GHz.

Frequency ranges for these pre-scan chambers are 26 MHz to 40 GHz (radiated immunity) and 30 MHz to 40 GHz (radiated emission).
