You can gain access to our test facilities and carry out your own EMC pre-test and thereby test whether your product is sensitive to appliances that emit electromagnetic noise.

You can give your new electrical and electronic products a good start by testing them for their robustness against electromagnetic interference. An EMC pre-test that you carry out yourself, will give you a general idea of how your product will react in different user situations – close to mobile telephones, routers, RF transmitters and other equipment. EMC stands for Electromagnetic Compatibility and expresses the product’s ability to electromagnetically function together with other electrical or electronic equipment without interference or breaking down.

By becoming a member of the EMC Club, you automatically gain access to our do-it-yourself facilities, where you can test your product against a number of basic standards. For example, you can test your product’s immunity to high field strengths.

In a do-it-yourself pre-test, you may use our advanced facilities, you also gain access to a specialist from FORCE Technology during the booked time. This provides you with the opportunity to purchase EMC advice or help with the test, if you need this. In addition, you can get do-it-yourself training in standards at meetings in the EMC Club.

We have a wide range of laboratories and test facilities available: We have some of the market’s most experienced and knowledgeable EMC experts who want to help you reach your goal with a complete and successful result.

Strategic advantages

With a do-it-yourself EMC pre-test you will gain a number of strategic benefits:
  • Increased knowledge of the tests and of your product
  • Improved knowledge about EMC to improve your company’s EMC design in future
  • A good basis for choosing further advanced test procedures.

We offer

Using FORCE Technology’s do-it-yourself facilities you get:

  • Access to state-of-the-art testing equipment
  • Instructions in methodically correct testing
  • The option to purchase expert advice along the way.

We offer do-it-yourself EMC pre-testing to members of the EMC Club who have received do-it-yourself training in standards at three of the EMC Club’s 10 annual meetings.
