AKUVIB is your competent partner for EMC testing of products for the railway sector

EMC measurements are divided into mobile tests on site and stationary tests in our EMC laboratory.

For the stationary tests in our laboratory, we use our anechoic hall and the shielding cabins. In individual cases, EMC tests on site can also be carried out after consultation.

AKUVIB offers you the possibility to carry out the complete railway specifications (environmental simulation, vibration technology and EMC tests) at one location.

Our state-of-the-art facilities also cover the special EMC requirements of the railway sector.
