EMC Testing for Marine Equipment - Environmental Simulation for Marine Equipment

Seafaring has always posed a challenge for manufacturers and users, especially in the communications sector. On high seas, precise navigation and functioning systems are vital, so the requirements in the areas of EMC and environmental simulation are particularly high. Manufacturers have to ensure that their products function without fatal defects.


  • Navigation devices
  • Radio communication facilities
  • Control and monitoring devices
  • Instruments and devices for internal communication
  • Programmable electronic systems

EMC Testing for Marine Applications

There are numerous absorber rooms available in our EMC laboratory for EMC tests on components. We would also be please to perform EMC measurements on your ship, boat, etc. on-site at your premises, worldwide  - EMCC on-site testing, worldwide.

Advice on EMC Testing Services and Accredited EMC Tests According to All Relevant Standards and Specifications for the Navy

To ensure the trouble-free functioning of the components and systems, our experts will support you - if desired already during product development - with comprehensive, competent EMC engineering services as well as accredited testing services and certification services (EN ISO/IEC 17025) in all areas of EMC. Our testing services are recognized by Germanischer Lloyd.

We offer EMC measurements according to numerous product and manufacturer specific standards as well as international EMC standards such as IEC 60945 (IEC 60945:2002 Maritime navigation and radiocommunication equipment and systems - General requirements - Methods of testing and required test results).

We are glad to provide our customers with our EMC expertise and experience in carrying out interference suppression measures to further develop and modify products.

Of course, we are also pleased to support you with product certification.
