Software automates EMC/ EMI tests

March 06, 2014 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Electromagnetic compatibility is increasingly an issue for manufacturers, test houses and governmental test labs. For these customers, ETS Lindgren has rolled out the latest release of its TILE (Total Integrated Lab Environment) software that automates EMC and EMI tests.

The version at hand, it has the release number seven, boasts a new user interface that eases navigating in the menus and supports measurements according to MIL-STD-461, DO 160G/F and IEC 6100-4-21 with all relevant test procedures. A new sequencer with improved programmability facilitates compiling profiles and the latest Microsoft compilers.

TILE!7 users now have the option to utilise the TILE! empowered by EMQuest module. EMQuest, originally developed for applications in wireless environments, acts in this case as controller for wireless communications. What's more, the vendor has added Audio Break Through (ABT) and Radiated Spurious Emissions (RSE) as optional modules.

The TILE!7 user interface enables creating test profiles without additional programming. Pre-configured test profiles for measurements according to international standards can be created in a simple drag-and-drop manner. The software already contains a range of profiles including IEC, FCC, SAE for conducted and radiated emissions as well as conducted and radiated interference immunity. The new version also offers more than 1500 device drivers for measurement instruments of various brands including USB, Ethernet, GPIB and serial interfaces. As an additional goodie, the software now also offers a PDF printing function.
