EMC Measurement Services Electromagnetic Compatibility

We specialize in Unintentional Emissions, Intentional Transmitters and Immunity / Susceptibility testing.

EMC measurements are required by most governments throughout the world. EMC is an important compliance issue for equipment manufacturers. With the increased use of wireless communications, the potential for interference is also increasing. VPI Labs has fully equipped facilities located in Draper, UT and Wanship, UT; including 10 and 3 meter open area test sites and a 3 meter anechoic chamber, needed to perform the EMC measurements you require. VPI is accredited by NVLAP (Test Lab Code 100272-0) to perform emission and immunity measurements to a wide range of international and domestic regulatory standards. Our Scope of Accreditation is available here.
