Key facts

  • EMI measurement bandwidths and detectors
  • Limit line library as specified in the latest EMI standards
  • Test automation and reporting for fast and repeatable measurements
  • Transducer factors for antennas, cables, LISNs, etc
  • Support of Elektra EMC software

Detecting and eliminating electromagnetic interference

The EMI precompliance application (K54 option) for Rohde & Schwarz signal and spectrum analyzers is the ideal extension for EMI analysis during product development and to prepare for a smooth product certification process. Typical fields of application include commercial, automotive, avionic and military product developments (CISPR, EN, FCC, DO-160 and MIL-STD-461 standards).

Features & benefits

Measurement automation

Repeatable and fast measurement thanks to automated test sequence

  • Pretesting: Sweeping of set frequency range with one or more fast detectors (e.g. peak or average) 
  • Identification of critical frequencies: Automatic detection of peaks and limit deviations as well as tabular overview of frequencies found  
  • Final measurement of identified frequencies: Automatic final measurement using detectors that require a longer measuring time (e.g. quasi-peak) and final evaluation based on the set limit line

Two detectors are used for the sweep. The identified maximum values are listed and automatically remeasured. PASS/FAIL status is clearly shown.

In-depth signal analysis

  • Up to 200 001 sweep points for high frequency resolution even with large span/small measurement bandwidths
  • Logarithmic frequency scale for in-depth analysis of low frequencies despite wide frequency range
  • Zero span measurement for analyzing the signal behavior over time of selected frequencies with standard detectors and CISPR detectors
  • AM and FM demodulation with audio output to identify ambient interferers

The signal is analyzed over time at 580 kHz. The repetition rate of the interference is 50 Hz (20 ms).

Efficient and fast

  • Limit lines: More than 170 EMI limit lines based on the latest versions of common EMI standards (CISPR/EN, FCC, MIL-STD-461 and DO-160) for fast and accurate configuration of the measurement setup
  • LISN remote control: Simplified test execution by controlling connected Rohde & Schwarz LISNs.
  • Report generation: Output of measurement results  at the push of a button
