EMI test receiver measures emissions up to 30 MHz
At EMV 2023 in Stuttgart next week, Rohde & Schwarz will introduce the R&S EPL1000 compact, CISPR 16-1-1 -compliant test receiver for quick and precise EMI measurements up to 30MHz.
The additional spectrum analyser and signal and tracking generator make the R&S EPL1000 suitable for lab applications.
The very fast time domain scan lets the R&S EPL1000 check all frequencies in CISPR bands A or B in a single shot for quick and seamless measurements over extended periods of time as required. A GUI helps EMC engineers quickly find infrequent emissions and gain a good overview, said Rohde & Schwarz.
The R&S EPL1000 has a pulse protected input. An auto-ranging function prevents the overloading of the signal processing chain to ensure correct measurement results. Built-in pre-selection ensures a high dynamic range and enables the acquisition of short pulses. For detailed signal analysis, the R&S EPL1000 has spectrogram and IF analysis functions. Automation simplifies measurements and ensures exact reproducibility of test sequences, claimed Rohde & Schwarz. For example, all lines connected to a Rohde & Schwarz LISN can be checked for CISPR bands A and B at the push of a button. Results are automatically compared with configured limit values and the R&S EPL1000 displays the result for the entire measurement as pass or fail. The integrated report generator allows the result and measurement details to be easily saved and printed.
The additional spectrum analyser functions help with a detailed EMI analysis. An optional integrated continuous wave signal generator with a tracking generator function characterises used accessories and cables without the need to use an external signal generator. In addition to the standard mains supply, the compact test receiver can be run on 12/24V DC or battery, making it very flexible and portable.
The R&S EPL1000 is suitable for conducted voltage and current emission measurements. The frequency range to 30MHz is uitable for testing commercial products against ISO, EN, CISPR and FCC standards. The R&S EPL1000 supports product certification, pre-certification, measurements during product development phases and market surveillance.
The R&S EPL1000 can be used with the R&S Elektra EMC test software. R&S Elektra helps minimise test times and simplifies configuring test systems and running test procedures in line with the EMC standards. The instrument speeds up test execution and provides comprehensive and customisable test reports.
Rohde & Schwarz will exhibit the EMI test receiver at EMV 2023 in Stuttgart from March 28 to 30, in Hall 2-615.
