EMC Site Surveys
An EMC survey is performed in order to determine the types of electromagnetic (EM) phenomena/Radio Frequency (RF) that are present in a certain location. With multiple types of antennas, Gauss Meters, EMI Radiation Meters, and RF Exposure Meters, we measure the frequencies, and levels of Electromagnetics/Radio Frequency, as well as the amounts of RF and Magnetic Field Exposure in the area.
RF site surveys are most often requested for the following reasons:
- EMC site surveys can be helpful in identifying issues that might be present with unreliable equipment. It can help determine whether the problem is being caused by RF interference and can help pinpoint where the issue is coming from.
- To ensure that the performance of new electronic equipment is not impacted by other electromagnetics in the environment
- To ensure that the installation of the product does not affect the existing equipment or infrastructure.
- To ensure that high power RF equipment is not the cause of health concern
- To ensure that high power RF equipment does not interfere with medical devices, such as pacemakers.
- To help determine if a location is safe for your product before you install it in that area.
F2 Labs can assist you with your EMC site survey needs. Our experienced staff will accurately measure signal levels and interference sources to ensure EMC compliance.
