To support your needs to meet the most stringent requirements of RTCA/DO160, MIL-STD-461, DEF-STAN 59-411, Airbus ABD0100, Boeing and many others, Element offers power quality testing at extremely high voltage and current levels with entirely tailorable parameters.


What is power quality testing and why is it important? 

Power quality testing is essential to expose susceptibilities to incoming phenomena as well as characterizing what will be passed from equipment back onto the power lines. Power supply effects covered by power quality testing include; steady state/fault & emergency conditions, transients, surges and spikes among others.


EMC power quality test systems

Our power quality test systems are extremely flexible, allowing us to provide AC & DC power at virtually any voltage and current level, as well as Single-Phase and Three-Phase AC power at virtually any frequency.

Using our customizable test systems, we can provide virtually any surge or interruption transient with extremely fast slew rates, including:



  • 500 Volts (per phase)
  • 250 Amps (3 phase)
  • 750 Amps (1 phase)


  • 700 Volts
  • 1200 Amps


Standards we test to

We provide power quality testing in accordance with virtually all commercial and military standards, such as:

  • RTCA/DO-160
  • MIL-STD-704
  • MIL-STD-1275
  • MIL-STD-1399
  • DEF-STAN 61-5
  • Airbus ABD0100.1.8

The Element advantage

Element is one of the few laboratories worldwide to offer power quality testing at virtually any voltage or current level.

In addition to these power quality testing capabilities, Element also provides Ground Reference Fluctuation testing in accordance with Airbus ABD0100.1.2 Issue G, both in the UK and the US. Element’s US laboratory is accredited for this test by A2LA, and Element has the only UK facility to be UKAS accredited for this testing.

Our experts work with you to ensure your product passes EMC on time, every time.

Taking you from R&D to marketplace reality.

Key Points to Consider when Preparing to Test Military and Defense Equipment

Element delivers an extensive range of testing and validation services required by defense manufacturers during qualification to help meet the rigorous demands of military standards. These include Def standard 59-411 and Mil standard 461, as well as more specific aerospace standards such as RTCA DO-160 for indirect and direct lightning testing. READ MORE

CE Mark Requirements for UK MoD Defense Equipment

With qualification performance now being considered earlier in the CADMID cycle, products tested in the design and prototyping stage are reaping significant benefits through reduced risk, cost savings and faster approval times, allowing earlier delivery to the MoD. READ MORE
