Rohde & Schwarz increases functionality of Elektra EMC software

Automating EMI tests, Rohde & Schwarz has added options to its R&S Elektra EMC test software. The Rohde & Schwarz Elektra EMC test software now also covers electromagnetic susceptibility (EMS) to address both product development and certification in line with international standards.

Users can now boost testing efficiency in EMC labs, says the company, thanks to the extensive automated execution of EMI tests. Elektra helps lab operators and EMC engineers working in a variety of industries or for test houses and regulatory authorities save time and effort in the development and certification of commercial, automotive and A&D products.

The software options for conducted and radiated EMS testing in line with commercial standards addresses testing the immunity of electronic products to RF interference.

There is a collection of pre-defined libraries for common EMC standards and automatic detection of connected instruments enable users to get started testing quickly.

The software’s graphic user interface (GUI) is optimized for high-resolution screens and touch operation on handheld devices. It provides instant access to important functions without having to navigate through several windows and a dashboard with favourite items, keyword search, tagging and filtering of key elements maintains an overview of the current work.

Rohde & Schwarz is co-operating closely with CISPR committees and contributing to EMC standardisation updates. Integrating test software into EMC systems optimises the test experience and delivers time and cost benefits.
