EMC facility at ITAINNOVA
The electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) facility is located in Zaragoza, Spain. Since 2008, Instituto Tecnológico de Aragón (ITAINNOVA) has been participating in high energy physics (HEP) projects for future colliders performing EMC studies. The EMC lab is specially adapted to perform non-standard tests focused on HEP in order to carry out noise measurements as well as grounding and shielding diagnosis. Also, the laboratory is able to perform most of the EMC tests (Emission and Immunity) included in basic and generic standards for electronic equipment according to the European Directive 2004/108/EC.
ITAINNOVA Semi-anechoic chamber
The EMC equipment at ITAINNOVA consists of :
Transnational access covers
The total period of ITAINNOVA availability for all the EMC tests is estimated to be 5 weeks per year. Two types of access can be provided:
► Standard access: for component testing
► Extended access: for large or midscale prototypes testing
ITAINNOVA will take care of the operation of the infrastructure, while the user is expected to participate with ITAINNOVA specialists in the definition of the goals of the tests. Users will be responsible for the analysis of the test results. In some cases remote access is possible. Two or three experiments per year are expected.
Faraday cage for conducted emission (RF & transients) tests
Whenever necessary, travel expenses for one person to get access to the facility will be covered by AIDA-2020 for each selected project. The cost of shipping equipment under test will NOT be covered.
