Rohde & Schwarz Introduces R&S ESR EMI Test Receiver

R&S ESR EMI test receiver ~ Rohde & Schwarz

Rohde & Schwarz announced their new R&S ESR EMI test receiver. The instrument measures conducted and radiated disturbances with a frequency range of 10 Hz to 7 GHz. It is compliant with the CISPR 16-1-1 standard. The R&S ESR test receiver can take EMI measurements up to 6000 times faster than other solutions. The R&S ESR makes it easy to perform acceptance testing (conducted or radiated) in line with EN/CISPR/FCC on modules, assemblies, household appliances, IT equipment, TVs, and radios. It is also ideal for acceptance testing of mobile applications, and vehicles and accessories.

The R&S ESR test receiver features spectrogram display, realtime spectrum analysis, IF analysis, and intuitive touchscreen interface. There are models with frequencies ranging from 10 Hz to 3 GHz or 7 GHz. The instruments support all commercial standards relevant for test houses and EMC labs used by electrical equipment manufacturers and their suppliers.

The Rohde & Schwarz instrument features time domain scan, which is a FFT-based receiver technology that helps it to perform measurements up to 6000 times faster than other EMI test receivers. Standard-compliant EMC measurements that took hours in the past can now be completed in just seconds. This measurement method is ideal for DUT that can only be operated for short periods for testing, such as in the automotive and lighting industry.
