Three Meter Fully Compliant Chambers

Description

3 Meter Fully Compliant semi-anechoic chambers offer semi-anechoic radiated emissions (RE) and fully anechoic radiated immunity (RI) compliance test capability for most international EMC compliance regulations.

Three meter Fully Compliant Chamber Shielding System:

Our three meter pre-scan Immunity/Emissions enclosure is modular panel construction; the panels are a laminate 26 gauge, electrolytically deposited zinc sheet steel laminated to both surfaces of ¾” thick solid, (structural) core material. These panels have a flame spread of 20 minutes or less as rated by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.  The panels are joined by specifically designed framing members that clamp the edges of the panels and provide constant, low impedance joints with the shielding elements of the chamber. Weld nuts are on 3” centers and our corners are welded; no screws are used and nothing penetrates our chamber’s shielding.

Three Meter Fully Compliant Chamber Design:

A 3 meter fully compliant chamber’s length and width depend upon the size of the DUT; our most popular model comes with a 2 meter turntable.  The specification mandates the source antenna scan up to 4 meters above the ground plane so the height is set at ~20’.

Cuming Microwave’s C-RAM HFP hybrid absorbers are specially designed to match the impedance of the ferrite tiles and can safely withstand continuous field intensity of up to 400 V/m and intermittent field intensity of up to 750 V/m. This safely exceeds the field intensity requirements of most commercial RI tests.  

Radiated Emissions Testing:

Our three meter fully compliant chamber can be used to perform full compliance testing for ANSI C63.4, FCC parts 15 & 18, EN 50147-2, CISPR 11/EN55011, CISPR 16/EN55016, CISPR 22/EN55022, VCCI V-3/2003.04, SAE J551 and SAE J1113.

Radiated Immunity Testing:

C-LCI’s three meter fully compliant chamber can also be used to perform full compliance testing for IEC 61000-4-3/EN61000-4-3 and SAE J-1113 requirements.

Our 3m fully compliant chamber range lengths field uniformity of 0 – 6 dB is achieved in the test aperture over the frequency range of 26 MHz to 18 GHz. The test aperture is a vertical plane 1.5 meter x 1.5 meter at an elevation of 0.8m to 2.3m above the ground plane, following the field uniformity test procedure of IEC 61000-4-3.
