SGS launches in-situ EMC testing of large equipment
Test, inspection and certification company SGS has launched mobile units for in-situ EMC and EMI testing services, including at semiconductor manufacturing plants. 

The SGS in-situ EMC testing service is aimed at manufacturers of larger and installed equipment, where transportation to EMC test chambers is challenging or impossible. Overall, equipment makers can save time and money on the shipping of their products and personnel to a lab.

“We are delighted to now be able to extend our range of services for large equipment manufacturers, letting us meet increased market demand and helping clients streamline and speed up their routes to new markets,” said John Ciliege, Global Head of NRTL at SGS.

“Thanks to investment in state of the art, mobile testing equipment, our clients can save time and money on the shipping of products and personnel to our labs. It also means we can support manufacturers of larger and installed equipment, where transportation to our EMC test chambers is challenging or impossible.”

SGS’s specialist teams now have the capability to perform onsite EMI/EMC testing, product safety, and site survey services at a customer’s own premises for CE, FCC, IEC 61000-6 and SEMI F47.

For the product under test, there is no dimensional requirement or limit, it only has to be justified that it is prohibitive to be able to bring it into the lab: installed equipment or equipment that is too large to fit into the chamber, or equipment which requires special support equipment that can’t be provided in the lab environment. There is no size limit, but the larger units will take longer to test and result in higher cost.

The dimensions of the shipping case which houses all of the test equipment is 62” L x 48” W x 34” H and weighs approximately 700 lbs (300kg).

SGS has 93,000 employees operate a network of 2,600 offices and laboratories and is offering the service internationally
