    Compliance according to CISPR 12 and CISPR 25 (vehicle and components); compliance according to CISPR 11, CISPR 14-1, CISPR 16-1-4, CISPR 22,
    and CISPR 32 (other EUTs)
  • Radiated immunity (EMS):
    Compliance according to DIN/ ISO 11451-2 and DIN/ISO 11452 (vehicle and components); compliance according to IEC/EN 61000-4-3 (other EUTs)
  • Customizable and compact chamber design
  • Optimized absorber lining with Frankosorb® long-lasting absorbers (Frankonia technology)
  • Turn-key solution

The AVTC is Frankonia’s solution for radiated emissions and immunity tests on vehicle and components according to CISPR12 and CISPR25, as well as for ISO 11451-2 and ISO 11452-2. The semi-anechoic chamber is designed to allow vehicle testing up to 5.0 m length (on turntable ø 5.0 m) for measuring distances of 3.0 meters.


Moreover, it is easily possible to upgrade the chamber for emission tests according to CISPR11, CISPR14-1, CISPR 16-1-4, CISPR22 and CISPR32, as well as for immunity test according to IEC/EN 61000-4-3. The perfect balance of a compact chamber layout and an optimized absorber configuration, moreover, leads to minimized reflections and offers great performance and flexibility.


The frequency range of Frankonia’s automotive vehicle testing chamber is from 26 MHz to 18 GHz (40 GHz as option). Along with our turnkey solution capabilities, the AVTC is available in several configurations and perfectly meets our customers’ needs.

EMC means "an electronic or electrical product shall work as intended in its environment. The electronic or electrical product shall not generate electromagnetic disturbances (interference), which may influence other products". In other words, EMC deals with problems of noise emission as well as noise immunity of electronic and electrical products and systems. Electromagnetic disturbances occur as conducted interference as well as radiated emissions and immunity problems.

An anechoic chamber is a room designed to completely absorb reflections of electromagnetic waves used for various EMC Testing. They are also insulated from exterior sources of noise. The combination of both aspects means they simulate a quiet open-space of infinite dimension, which is useful when exterior influences would otherwise give false results. The RF anechoic chamber is typically used to house the equipment for performing measurements of antenna radiation patterns, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and radar cross section measurements. EMC chambers allow for the performance of fast and efficient EMC radiated tests at a convenient location, without interference from the ambient electromagnetic environment.

The term conducted emissions refers to the mechanism that enables electromagnetic energy to be created in an electronic device and coupled to its AC power cord. Similarly to radiated emissions, the allowable conducted emissions from electronic devices are controlled by regulatory agencies. If a product passes all radiated emissions regulations but fails a conducted emissions test, the product cannot be legally sold.

The term radiated emissions refers to the unintentional release of electromagnetic energy from an electronic device. The electronic device generates the electromagnetic fields that unintentionally propagate away from the device’s structure. In general, radiated emissions are usually associated with non-intentional radiators, but intentional radiators can also have unwanted emissions at frequencies outside their intended transmission frequency band.

Conducted Immunity (also called Susceptibility) is a measure of the ability of electronic products to tolerate the influence of conducted electrical energy from other electronic products and electromagnetic phenomena.

Radiated Immunity (also called Susceptibility) is a measure of the ability of electronic products to tolerate the influence of radiated electrical energy from other electronic products and electromagnetic phenomena.

Simulates disturbances created by radio transmitters operating below 80 MHz (such as AM broadcast transmitters) that would typically be coupled onto a products interface cables.


Test Method

The test signal, amplitude modulated by a 1 kHz sine wave, is injected onto the AC or DC wires via a Coupling, Decoupling Network (CDN) while the frequency is varied. Unshielded cables can be tested using either a CDN, coupling clamp or current injection probe. Shielded cables are tested using direct injection, the signal is coupled through a 100-Ohm resistor onto the shield of the cable under test. The injection level is pre-calibrated using the appropriate calibration jig and is equivalent to the open circuit voltage at the output from the amplifier for an unmodulated signal.


The test level for the residential, commercial and light industrial generic standard is 3 Volts; for heavy industrial equipment the test level is 10 Volts.

We have a Frankonia SAC3Plus EMC chamber that we use for commercial testing. We have some height limitations in our laboratory and its dome shaped design fits very conveniently. We are happy with the performance of the chamber and their absorber design is great. No carbon dust and falling of foam absorbers. Previously we had carbon foam-based absorbers and we literally had to wear a safety hat before entering the chamber.
