A state-of-the-art automotive EMC test lab has been set up in Bengaluru, India, by TÜV Rheinland. The new facility located in the Electronic City technology hub in Bangalore will be used to test and evaluate two, three, and four wheelers along with their electronic sub-assemblies and will enable OEMs to test according to local and international standards.

“This lab is equipped with the latest test devices such as a 10m absorber lined shielded enclosure (ALSE) in the anechoic chamber and automotive transient and transient emission stimulators, which can be used to test electronic sub-assemblies as well as battery/hybrid vehicles,” said Thomas Fuhrmann, CEO and MD of TÜV Rheinland India.

“We are extremely proud to boast that with this new and unique testing lab, TÜV Rheinland will become the only international certification body in India offering testing and certification of automotive vehicles and sub-systems.”

Ravindra Kumar BS, head of the automotive EMC test team and the laboratory at TÜV Rheinland India, added, “This facility has been accredited by NABL as per the IEC/ISO 17025 and has successfully executed Indian homologations for vehicles and electronic sub-assemblies in association with various national institutions apart from the day-to-day testing and certifications for international homologations.

“The laboratory is equipped with test instruments as per the latest EU standard ECE R10 Revision 5: 2014 for the additional requirements for vehicles and ESAs providing coupling systems for charging the REESS regarding the control of emissions and immunity from this connection between vehicle and power grid.”
