MIL-STD-461Military Test Chamber


Global EMC’s MIL-STD-461 test facility has been specifically designed for the varied and heavy-duty testing required by the military. The chamber is constructed using a self-standing steel structure and modular steel shield.

Specially designed for MIL-STD-461, Global EMC use a compact and cost-effective anechoic pyramidal absorber, bespoke to this standard. This increases the internal space within the chamber and helps reduce the overall cost.

This Product Features


Testing facility for performing compliant tests to MIL-STD-461 and DO-160. The chamber can be designed to test small electronic equipment to very large military vehicles. Communication and electrical equipment, armaments, aircraft equipment and vehicles are all examples of what can be tested.

The anechoic pyramidal absorber, bespoke to this standard increases the internal space within the chamber and helps reduce the overall cost. Due to the varied requirements of the equipment to be tested, all MIL-STD-461/DO-160 chambers are designed and manufactured to exact requirements.

The chamber can also be adapted to meet the requirements of DEF STAN 59-411 upon request.

MIL-STD 461 Military EMC Test Facility


MIL-STD-461


MIL-STD-461 testing ensures that products meet the stringent requirements for products used in rugged military environments. This covers, but is not limited to, the electromagnetic compatibility characteristics of equipment and systems.

Military


Specifically relating to UK defence standardisations.

EMC


Electromagnetic compatibility or EMC testing gives the manufacturer of a product the ability to demonstrate the ability of their product.

Test Facility


An EMI/RFI shielded room, using a Faraday cage principle. This is to stop unwanted signals from the ambient environment entering the chamber and causing interference whilst tests are being performed.

High-Performance Anechoic Lining


Ferrite Tiles & Absorbers – The walls and ceiling of the test chamber are precisely lined with the latest generation gapless Hybrid Pyramid absorbers and Ferrite tiles. The Pyramidal absorbers are precisely doped to ensure a smooth transition between the high performance of the Ferrite tiles at lower frequencies to the Pyramidal absorbers in higher frequencies. The “plug-in” base system of the absorbers means that individual absorber cones can be replaced if accidentally damaged during operation of the test chamber. This reduces the cost of repairs and time taken for the test chamber to become fully operational again.
