York EMC opens Grangemouth facility

York EMC Services has opened a new compliance test laboratory, relocating its Scottish operation from Dalgety Bay to Grangemouth. The purpose built laboratory offers a range of EMC, safety, radio, telecoms and EMF compliance services to companies in Scotland and the North of England.

Chief Executive Nick Wainwright said: "The compliance industry is constantly changing, which means we need to evolve to make sure that we continue to meet the needs of our customers. The convenient location of our Grangemouth laboratory with its brand new facilities, not to mention the key expertise of our experienced team, will ensure that we are uniquely placed to add value to businesses in Scotland and the North of England." The facility features new EMC test chambers, including a fully compliant 3m semi anechoic/fully anechoic chamber, enabling radiated emissions to be performed in an electromagnetically quiet environment. This chamber, the first in the UK, has been built using DuraSorb, a lightweight, high performance absorber.
