EMC, Environmental Simulation, Radio and Electrical Safety testing for Wireless Communication

Wireless communication has become an integral part of modern life. The main advantages of wireless communication versus wired devices are location-independence, lower costs and ease of installation. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and environmental conditions such as shocks, vibrations and extreme temperatures can seriously disrupt the function and safety of wireless devices.

Potential applications for wireless data transmission are:

  • Bluetooth
  • DECT
  • EDGE
  • GPRS
  • GSM
  • IWLAN
  • LTE
  • nanoNet
  • Trusted Wireless
  • UMTS
  • UWB-Technology
  • Wireless Ethernet
  • WirelessHART
  • WiMAX
  • WUSB
  • WLAN
  • WPAN
  • WWAN
  • WLL
  • Zigbee
  • Z-Wave
  • and many more
