Qualify the Electromagnetic Compatibility of your equipment

Manumesure has an Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) test laboratory at its technical centre in Pont-L’Evêque (France).

The Chauvin Arnoux Group's measuring instruments and equipment are all qualified in this laboratory.



This laboratory is also available for industrial companies seeking to qualify the electromagnetic compatilibility of their equipment with regard to the EMC regulations.
Please do not hesitate to contact us.

EMC, CE marking and the European Directive

Electromagnetic compatibility (abbreviation: EMC) is the capability of a device or system to operate satisfactorily in an electromagnetic environment, without causing intolerable electromagnetic disturbances for everything else in the environment.

European Directive 2004/108/CE replacing Directive 89/336/CE makes EMC tests mandatory for all electrical and electronic devices. It obliges industrial companies to place CE marking on all such products, thus proving that they comply with the EMC standards applicable to them (among other aspects).

Immunity tests

According to the NF EN 61000-4-2 ... 4-11 standards

61000-4-2: Electrostatic discharges: contact discharge 8 kV - air discharge 15 kV

61000-4-3: Radiated immunity:

          • 3 V/m at 3 metres between 80 MHz and 2.7 GHz
          • 10 V/m at 3 metres between 80 MHz et 2.5 GHz

61000-4-4: Fast transients and bursts:

          • 4 kV with direct injection on single-phase and three-phase coupler
          • 4 kV by coupling clamp

 61000-4-5: 1.2/50 µs shock waves: 4 kV by single-phase coupler

61000-4-6: Conducted radio-frequencies: 3 V and 10 V between 150 kHz and 80 MHz with CDNs (coupling-decoupling networks) and injection clamp

61000-4-8: Magnetic field: 100 A/m in Helmholtz coils

61000-4-11: Short interruptions and voltage dips: single-phase test

Susceptibility tests

According to the NF EN 55011 standard

Radiated emissions: from 30 MHz to 1 GHz at 3 metres. Automated turntable and antenna for in-depth determination of the maximum values

Conducted emissions: measurement with single-phase LISN from 150 kHz to 30 MHz
