Does your product comply with necessary EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) standards? Do your equipment's critical functions continue without interruption when subjected to Electromagnetic Interference? These questions are taken seriously in an industry demanding safety and reliability as the standard for quality; where there can be no mistakes.
At TÜV SÜD America, we provide rigorous EMC testing services specific to the Aerospace, Avionics and Defense Industries, giving you the confidence you need to gain FAA approval, meet supplier prerequisites or to comply with strict military requirements.
Our state-of-the-art facilities offer Environmental and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing for:
At TÜV SÜD America, we offer a unique approach, providing comprehensive test plans and automated testing facilities that can be tailored to meet your specific testing requirements. Whether we support your project from the early development stages to final qualification testing, TÜV SÜD America is dedicated to providing you the product support needed to meet your EMC/EMI requirements.
RTCA/DO-160 is published by RTCA, Inc., a global organization comprised of industry and government representatives that develop standards to assure the safety and reliability of all Aviation Electronics equipment (Avionics). Manufacturers of Commercial Avionics equipment selling their products in the United States, Europe, and around the globe must meet RTCA requirements, including RTCA/DO-160. The European Organization for Civil Aviation Electronics (EUROCAE) works jointly with RTCA in the development of avionics standards, and publishes its own, identical document known as EUROCAE/ED-14.
TÜV SÜD America is a member of RTCA and participates in the development and ongoing change of the DO-160 standard.
TÜV SÜD America can test your products to the rigorous EMC and Lightning requirements found in RTCA/DO-160. We able to perform Radiated Susceptibility testing, and are among the few labs whose testing is fully computer-assisted. Computer-assisted testing assures accurate and consistent results with the repeatability that is not obtainable using manual methods.
European Union version of RTCA/DO-160.
MIL-STD-461 establishes the design requirements for the control of the electromagnetic emission and susceptibility characteristics of equipment and subsystems used by activities and agencies of the US Department of Defense.
