EMCview PC software for EMC pre-compliance testing

The Tekbox EMC compliance software EMCview for PCs is a user-friendly EMC pre-compliance testing of radiated and conducted emissions. It is a perfect complement for automated testing using our LISNs and TEM Cells.

A built-in amplitude correction enables correction and conversion coefficients for cables, amplifiers, attenuators, LISNs, TEM cells, antennas, RF current probes, striplines and capacitive coupling clamps.

There is no need for a time-consuming setup. The SW is ready for measurements straight after installation. All emission related CISPR-xx (EN550xx) measurements and a few automotive manufacturer standards are pre-configured in corresponding project files.

The graph supports two complete measurement runs such as for example Average / Quasi-Peak or Peak / Quasi Peak and alternatively a fast Quasi-Peak scan of critical peaks.

Furthermore, EMCview together with our GPS receiver can be used to carry out RF-coverage measurements. An export feature creates KML files which link the result to google maps.

Immunity testing is supported with a menu controlling the tracking generator of the spectrum analyzer

EMCview currently supports the following spectrum analyzers

  • Rigol (DSA and RSA)
  • Siglent (SSA/SSA plus/SSA -R and SVA) Siglent EU, Siglent USA
  • R&S (FPC and FPH)
  • OWON XSA and HSA
  • Teledyne Test Tools T3SA series
  • BK Precision 2683 series

The spectrum analyzer should also be equipped with the EMI option.

NOTE: Software limitation without a license: the measurement is limited to the frequency range below 10MHz
