Our EMC testing and certification services ensure that your multimedia equipment complies with EN 55032, 35 (CISPR 32 and 35) standards and gains fast and easy access to global markets.
Due to the convergence of technologies, many products are now classified as “multimedia” rather than Information Technology (IT) or audio/video since they integrate more than one technology. Many current products also include some form of radio/wireless functionality.
With accreditation to ISO17025 by UKAS, NVLAP and A2LA, Element can lead your way to compliance to a wider variety of standards for your products, so that they can be shipped to multiple markets inside and outside the EU, North America, and more.
Our Multimedia EMC testing services
- EN55032/CISPR 32 – Emission requirements
- EN55035/CISPR 35 – Immunity requirements
- IEC/EN62368-1 – Safety of audio/video, information technology, and communication equipment
Testing of multimedia equipment is more complicated than merely testing against the standards – one needs to consider use, environment, functions, and the technology used to assess against the risks that the product may cause or experience.
As part of EN 55032/5 and CISPR 32/35 assessments, our ESQ teams provide advice on how to classify your Multimedia equipment (MME) to Class A and Class B. Class B includes MME that is intended primarily for use in the residential environment and meets the Class B limits whilst Class A is all other MME which satisfies the Class A limits. Element can also support you with the development of test plans to ensure that all the requirements of the standard are considered.
Fast and efficient product testing
Element is well equipped with the expertise and necessary support equipment to assess your product’s performance against the requirements of the standard, and to test the products so their various interfaces are exercised properly.
