Features & Benefits

  • Flexible...

  • ...in its use

    • Certification measurement

    Predefined, fully automated tests and test sequences make it possible to perform and document standardized EMC measurements quickly and easily.

    • Tests during development

    Switchover between manual and automatic measurements at any time.

    • Compliance testing

    Standard measurements can be performed with the aid of predefined test routines and an integrated EUT monitoring function (EMS).

    • Batch tests

    The capability to perform graphical batch measurements is ideal for batch testing.

    • Calibration

    The characteristics of individual system components can be detected by using an optional tracking generator or an external signal generator. In addition, calibration data can be imported as an ASCII file or manually entered.

      • Test report in rtf, pdf and html file format
    • Quick and easy preparation of measurements by means of EUT or standard-specific test templates which can be defined by the user
  • ... in file management

    • Test results can be stored in EUT-specific folders using the Windows directory structure
    • Integrated backup/restore function for
      • System folders
      • Test folders
      • Configuration files
    • Standard Windows tools can be used for file management and data backup
    • User administration with two user classes (administrator and standard) with individual working environments; file saving structures and profiles for all personal settings
  • Future-oriented ...

  • ... through modular software structure and option concept

    • The basic EMI and EMS software modules can be easily upgraded by means of options to enhance their measurement capabilities and functional range
  • ... in data storage and processing

    • All measurement, configuration and report data is stored in standard file formats
    • Alphanumeric data (calibration data, measurement results, settings) are stored in text format (UNICODE) for easy transfer to other applications
    • Graphs (measured traces) in WMF format
    • Test report in rtf, pdf and html file format
  • ... through enhanceability and support

    The modular software structure helps to ensure smooth software expansions and modifications as part of Rohde & Schwarz software update service. This also means adaptability to future measurement tasks, amendments to standards and new hardware requirements


    The test component explorer (top left) provides an overview of all loaded files of the current measurement. Directly below it are the entry fields for the manual remote control of mast and turntable.

    The area in the center provides the graphics for the following:

    • The overview measurement (preview) with the results of the individual EMI measurement
    • The zoom function which is used to perform a sweep or scan of a user-definable area around the disturbance frequency.

    The windows on the right are used for setting the frequency of the test receiver. They also display the current result of the individual EMI measurement numerically and as a bargraph (ClrWrite and MaxHold).

    The symbols at the bottom are used to control the test routine (pause, end, start, frequency step, etc.)

    A test directory contains all measurement results plus the associated test templates, limit lines and correction tables (transducers), which clearly define how the measurement results were obtained. Thus, users can confidently trace the results and reliably reproduce the measurements (important for accreditation)
