French supplier Emitech has opened a new €10m (US$10.9m) test center for analyzing EMC of electronic equipment, as well as vehicle homologation and large system verification.

According to the company, the facility is outfitted with the largest (27m x 18m x 10.5m) and most recent Faraday cage built in France. Designed for electromagnetic compatibility test purposes, this resource enables evaluation against the UNECE R10 standard for EMC, of a wide range of vehicles and for the validation of large systems.

In terms of equipment, the center houses a chassis dynamometer that can be adapted for two- and four-wheel-drive vehicles, with a wheelbase of up to 6m and a carrying capacity of up to 6 metric tons per axle, enabling analysis of truck tractors or agricultural equipment. It can replicate speeds of up to 120km/h and wind speeds of up to 60km/h.

Various powertrain types are supported, including petrol and diesel combustion engines, micro-hybrids, hybrids and rechargeable hybrids, electric, and hydrogen systems.

It has a heavy load area that can support up to 40 metric tons, enabling it to accommodate construction machinery and equipment of high tonnage and volume.
