Consulting and testing in the field of electromagnetic compatibility

It is essential to know how a technical device or system performs under various electromagnetic influences. This is the only way to ensure that it operates as intended in its designated environment and thus offers first-class quality. Our EMC Test Center provides a wide range of consulting services in the field of electromagnetic compatibility.

We offer advice on selecting the appropriate EMC standards and limit values and drawing up an EMC test plan. We also provide support in determining and defining concrete “pass/fail” criteria. We carry out EMC tests according to civilian and military methods, propose solutions in case of complications during the test phase and prepare risk and data analyses. In the process, we make the appropriate recommendations.

First-class quality with our EMC Test Center


Latest infrastructure

With our state-of-the-art infrastructure, we perform tests under real-life and standard-conforming conditions.

High quality

Thanks to the high standards of the Swiss Accreditation Service (SAS), you benefit from maximum transparency and consistently high quality.


We work closely with partners for high voltage safety, lightning protection, inspection and acceptance. This ensures that you receive precise and complete results in a timely manner.

Scope of testing

The EMC Test Center carries out the following tests in both accredited and non-accredited scope:

  • Radiated emission / immunity tests
  • Conducted emission / immunity tests
  • Tests on immunity to electrostatic discharges (ESD)
  • RF shielding effectiveness tests on enclosures
  • Assessment of personal safety with respect to electromagnetic radiation (non-ionizing radiation protection)

Applied test methods

  • Civil standards: SN / EN / ISO / CISPR / IEC standards
  • Military standards: MIL-STD, VG standards (German defense basic standards), AECTP, DEF-STAN (partially)
  • Customer-specific test methods which may deviate from standards (on request)

Test objects: Operation and monitoring

  • EUT weight up to 60 t
  • EUT monitoring via video, audio and standardized communication interfaces (LAN, CAN, USB, RS232, etc.)
  • Power supply: filtered feedthroughs up to 1000 V, up to 400 A, from DC up to 400 Hz
  • Compressed air supply
  • Exhaust extraction

Life cycle of a system

The assessment of electromagnetic compatibility is carried out at different stages of the system cycle. We provide you with support during all phases from conception and specification through development and production to transfer of operations and the operation itself.
