Key Facts

  • Combination of standard-compliant EMI test receiver and high-quality spectrum analyzer
  • Integrated preselection with selectable 20 dB preamplifier
  • Effective analysis of the disturbance spectrum through simultaneous graphical presentation of the disturbance level and emission spectrum around the receive frequency (“mixed-mode”)
  • Time-domain analysis for evaluation of timing behavior of disturbances (e.g. click-rate analysis)
  • Simultaneous measurement of multiple traces for parallel evaluation
  • Fast and reliable measurements using automatic and interactive test routines
  • Predefined transducer factors
  • Library of limit lines for commercial standards

Brief Description

The R&S®ESCI and R&S®ESCI7 EMI test receivers are standard-compliant measuring receivers for EMC certification measurements in line with commercial standards in the frequency range from 9 kHz to 3/7 GHz. The receivers conform to the latest version of the CISPR 16-1-1 basic standard. At the same time, they function as full-featured and powerful spectrum analyzers for lab applications.
