Relocation of TRaC's Southern Labs creates unique aerospace EMC test facility

TRaC is pleased to announce that in September 2011 it will greatly expand its EMC and Environmental testing facilities in the south of England; TRaC's new location near Wimborne, Dorset, will be a UK centre of excellence for, in particular, all aspects of EMC testing for the Aerospace and Defence industries, and enhancing the established local commercial EMC and Safety facilities currently serving the region.

TRaC South will host a range of test facilities including: three EMC chambers capable of testing to a broad range of military/aerospace standards; two further chambers for commercial testing (CISPR 16-1-4 compliant) in which European (CE Mark) and US (FCC) approvals can be secured; and a further chamber specifically dedicated to transient testing.

Coupled with existing lightning capabilities, TRaC will have a comprehensive capability to apply high-intensity radiated field (HIRF) tests, at field strengths up to 5000 V/m over a broad frequency range, within its chambers. This significant investment of reverberation chambers and very high power amplifiers will provide unrivalled RF fields for mission critical equipment for the aircraft and military market.

The new facilities take into account large heavy equipments and hence offer large doors for direct fork-lift access, space to manoeuvre large items and turntables capable of 2 tonne payloads.

The new site in the south of England will also provide environmental test facilities, including vibration and shock; temperature, humidity and salt-spray chambers; environmental noise assessment; and hydraulic fatigue testing. TRaC will install one of its largest and most powerful electromagnetic shaker tables at the facility, also with a 2-tonne load capability.

Our technical expertise and capabilities are underpinned by independent accreditation and approval to industry specific and international standards; The TRaC South facility will be accredited by UKAS to ISO 17025. As a CAA recognised test laboratory, our test reports are recognised and accepted by the global civil aviation industry. TRaC is a Notified Body under many CE marking directives in addition to the international recognition of equivalents around the world. TRaC is in an ideal position to offer not only testing services, but design advice, consultancy and diagnostic analysis on the outcome of test failures.

TRaC's new south of England site will open in September in Three Legged Cross, Wimborne, Dorset: it will consolidate – and greatly expand on – the services that TRaC presently provides from nearby locations at Ringwood and Wimborne, and represents an investment of close to £2million by the company. Newly constructed test chambers will be fully operational before the transition, allowing uninterrupted service.
