Reliant EMC

Laplacell (Test cells)

6GHz Versions available in April of 2018!
LaplaCells provide a facility for the rapid and efficient testing of the EMC compliance of products. These cells offer a calibrated and screened environment in which radiated emissions can be measured and immunity to RF radiation can be tested. They exceed the requirements of IEC61000-4-20, thus affording compliant testing to IEC61000-4-3 and pre-compliance testing for radiated emission testing.

Laplace Instruments LaplaCell300 or LaplaCell600

The Cells are a modified form of GTEM cell, using a balanced dual septum design which maximizes EUT volume for a given external size of cell, and dramatically improves field linearity. The EUT volume is fully lined in structural polycarbonate capable of supporting heavy products and access is via a large, full height door at the end of the cell. Adjacent to the door is the I/O filter compartment which can be customized to suit the users requirements. USB, RS232, Parallel, Ethernet, co-ax and other product specific filters can be added at time of ordering.
Key Points

- LaplaCell600 LC600 Cell 60 x 60 x 60cm for EUT up to 60cm cube (includes 19" racks up to 13u)
· Field sensor for immunity testing is included
· Complies with IEC61000-4-20
· Excellent field uniformity
· Compact size Ready for immediate use on delivery
· Standard filtered I/O includes mains feed, fiber optic access and 12 individual connections.
LaplaCells are specifically intended for use by manufacturers so that they can test their own products efficiently .
The LaplaCell design is an advance on the well known GTEM concept. However, the use of a dual septum provides:
· better field uniformity compact external size balanced septum fed with impedance conversion network to better match OATS conditions
· Built-in field sensor
· Camera and lighting options
Test cells (LaplaCell) is an optional extra for the following products: - 1GHz EMC emissions Analyzer
- RF Synthesizer
Test cells (LaplaCell) appears in the following kits:
- RFI kit
- RFL kit
