EMC, Radio, Electrical Safety, and Environmental Simulation Testing for Automotive Industry
People have always looked for quicker and more efficient ways of getting from A to B. This natural desire has been a driving force behind the highly creative and innovative automotive industry.
However, as road vehicles become ever more complex, manufacturers face a growing variety of challenges. Components and systems must perform to higher standards, and often combine multiple functions. Moreover, OEMs must incorporate highly sophisticated devices, such as electric windows, and GPS and radar systems. Moreover, they frequently deploy state-of-the-art materials, such as carbon fibre.
EMCC can provide expert assistance for car manufacturers and their component suppliers – if required, during the development process. Our offering includes end-to-end consulting, testing and certification services, across multiple areas – EMC, environmental simulation, electrical safety, and radio.
Accredited consulting and testing to all automotive industry standards and manufacturer specifications
Our services are accredited to the standards and specifications of:
BMW, Chrysler, Daimler, Fiat, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, MAN, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, PSA Peugeot-Citroën, Renault, SAAB, Smart, Toyota, Volkswagen, Volvo, and many more.
As well as being EN ISO/IEC 17025-accredited, EMCC was the first European testing laboratory to gain A2LA accreditation under the Automotive EMC Laboratory Accreditation Program (AEMCLAP) and the Automotive EMC Laboratory Recognition Program (AEMCLRP). Both have since been superseded by OEM-specific EMC recognition processes – for which our services and labs have also secured accreditation.
Furthermore, EMCC was the first European test lab to be recognised by Jaguar Land Rover for EMC tests to their latest JLR-EMC-CS standard. Ford and GM have also approved our labs for a variety of testing services.
We also offer consulting and testing to international standards such as ISO, CISPR, SAE, and many others. For more information, see here.
EC type-approval for road vehicles (E1 mark)
The EC 661/2009 General Safety Regulation requires type-approval for road vehicles, their components and separate technical units. In Germany, EC type-approval marks are issued by the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). The mark consists of the letter E and a number – indicating the country. For Germany, for example: „E1“.
The KBA has recognised EMCC as a category A and D service provider according to the 2007/46/EC directive. This enables us to perform tests to UN-ECE R10 standards. We offer our customers consulting, testing and modifications to resolve EMI issues in all road vehicles, components and retrofits.
