3m anechoic chamber

The main purpose of a 3m semi anechoic chamber is to perform full compliance measurements of radio frequency emission or immunity from electronic products at 3m measurement range length. The combination of the pan-type 2mm galvanized panel system and the polystyrene hybrid absorbers on the walls and ceiling eliminates unwanted electrical noise and complies with international emission test standards. The 3m semi anechoic chamber is a multi functional EMC test facility for commercial, military and automotive testing.

Features of a 3m semi anechoic chamber:

•    Full compliance emission test site for frequency range of 30MHz to 18GHz as per CISPR 16-1-4
•    Full compliance immunity test site for frequency range of 80MHz to 6GHz as per IEC/EN 61000-4-3
•    Shielding effectiveness according to EN 50147-1 (>80dB at 10kHz)

Applicable standards / test methods for a 3m anechoic chamber:

  • CISPR 16-1-4
  • IEC/EN 61000-4-3
  • EN 50147-1
  • ANSI C63.4
  • FCC 15

Typical performance of a 3m semi anechoic chamber:

- NSA: +/- 4.0dB
- FU: 75% of 16 points comply with +6dB requirements
- sVSWR: below 6dB
