EMC and RF Calibrations
Under accredited testing and calibrating
DARE!! Calibrations is the market-leader when it comes to EMC and high-frequency calibrations. As one of the few laboratories in Europe, DARE!! Calibrations is able to calibrate and/or test EMC measurement equipment like e-field sensors, antennas, measurement receivers and ESD guns of several manufactures under accredation.
A wide spectrum of specific test and measurement equipment is used to determine the emission and immunity of electrical and electronic devices, this phenomenon is also called Electronic Compatibility (EMC). Based on measurement results which are gathered with these EMC measure equipment products are also being approved or rejected. Therefore it is essential to guarantee the reproducibility and traceability of these measurement results. These depend mainly on the quality of the used measuring instruments. The only way to guarantee the quality and traceability is by periodically calibrating these measuring instruments and by applying procedures and international standards which are optimized for specific applications of the device.
Calibrations of antennas can be performed according to the SAE-ARP 958 method(i.a. for military purposes), as well as the 'Reflective Ground Plane' method(ANSI C63.5) witch is used a lot with antennas for CE mark(EMC standard)
To stay updated on possible changes in in calibration procedures, DARE!! calibrations closely follows the international developments regarding to EMC. The calibration procedures are optimally suited for the use of measuring instruments according to the standards applied in the implementation of the EMC-directive (2004/104/EC). These are generally the basic standards of the IEC1000-4/EN 61000-4-serie.
DARE!! Calibrations delivered complete calibrations under accreditation for i.a.:
EFT / Burst generators
Spectrum analyzers, including CISPR 16 detectors
EMI measuring receivers
Antennas (SAE / ANSI C63.5)
RF power meters
Shielded rooms (MRI or 'Cage of Faraday')
Anechoïc rooms (NSA or Site VSWR)
