7 TESTING FACILTIES
Location: 3000 Bristol Circle, Oakville, Ontario, Canada L6H 6G4
10 Meter TDK Semi-Anechoic Chamber
UltraTech's largest chamber is a 62'x42'x31' TDK semi-anechoic chamber, with external structural steel members providing additional support for the absorber load and any applicable seismic zone requirements. This chamber meets the ANSI 63.4 requirements for 3 and 10 meter test positions and listed with FCC, ISED, ANAB and VCCI for the purpose of performing radiated electromagnetic emissions testing over the frequency range of 25 MHz to 40 GHz. In this certified chamber, testing will be conducted with antenna to EUT distances of 3-to-10 meters. Radiated emissions testing shall be per FCC (US) Part 15, Subpart B, ISED (Canada) ICES-003, CE (Europe) CISPR 32, BSMI (Taiwan) CNS 13438 C6357, VCCI (Japan) V-3 and KCC-RRA (South Korea) KN 32 - Class A and B and other radio transmitters’ regulatory standards.
A secondary objective will be for radiated immunity testing per IEC 61000-4-3 for EUT evaluation. UltraTech's fully enclosed 3-to-10 meter TDK Semi-Anechoic Chamber is equipped with IP-090BLA material applied to the IB-015 ferrite tile surface, which completely covers the walls and ceiling to provide the required performance from 25 MHz to 18 GHz. A Sunol supplied 4-meter diameter, flush mounted turntable with a 10,000 lb capacity and a 4-meter mast with pneumatic polarization are connected via a fiber optic link to the external controller. This chamber has an 8'x8' access portal which facilitates the movement of large equipment into and out of the facility. The facility can be fully automated so that unattended measurements can be performed.
Open Area Test Site (OATS)
Ultratech’s 3-10 Meter Open Area Test Site (OATS) is fully enclosed in a wooden building and maintained in the way to minimize reflections, and protected with metal ground plane. The OATS is equipped with a flush mounted 3 meter diameter turntable capable of supporting 10,000 lb and remotely operated in a test equipment bay below the ground plane, along with the fiber optic controlled antenna tower mast.
10m Compact Chamber
UltraTech's second largest chamber is a 48'x24'x20' semi-anechoic chamber based on 20 cm ferrite tiles which have been stagger installed to reduce the effects of air gaps. The chamber is used primarily in emissions testing and pre-qualification work providing manufactures an exceedingly expeditious test facility that is ambient free. This means it takes less time to determine compliance than ever before.
Coupled with UltraTech's 62'x42'x31' TDK semi-anechoic chamber, the confidence level in radiated emissions measurements is one of the highest in the industry and UltraTech has proven repeatability with other noted manufacturer's test sites A secondary objective of this chamber will be for radiated immunity testing per IEC 61000-4-3 for EUT evaluation.
3m Compact Chamber
For Radiated Immunity measurements, UltraTech employs a 3 m dedicated fully anechoic chamber to provide consistent and repeatable uniform fields for meeting the EN 61000-4-3 requirements and other radiated Immunity standards. UltraTech's main full anechoic chamber measures 12'x24'x12' and it is designed to meet the strict field uniformity requirements for European EMC tests. This chamber is implemented using the 10cm ferrite tiles on all chamber surfaces which ensure consistent and repeatable uniform fields even down to 26 MHz. UltraTech's secondary anechoic chamber is implemented with the more traditional pyramidal carbon doped foam cones mounted on top of 10 cm ferrite tiles.
The room dimensions measures 12'x24'x12' with the chamber being primarily designed for MIL-STD-461/462, Automotive and Aerospace tests. UltraTech's also posses a shielded chamber measuring 24'x15'x8' which is used primarily for conducted emissions and radiated interference power tests. Using the latest Biconnilog antenna designs to speed testing along, UltraTech provides a comprehensive automated control and monitoring system that can record the effects of up to 8 individual analog channels if required. All chambers are equipped with close circuit cameras to monitor various aspects of the equipment under test.
SAR Test Chamber
UltraTech is pleased to announce the commissioning and installation of a new SPEAG DASY 5 state of the art SAR test facility. This is UltraTech's second SAR fully automated test system and it will enhance UltraTech's wireless testing capabilities to provide faster and more accurate SAR test and measurement capabilities in Canada. UltraTech is one of the few North American test houses that can carry out SAR tests for portable wireless devices such as cell phones, walkie talkies and wireless PDA devices.
All test and measurement procedures are based on the IEEE SCC34-2 P-1528 standard developed for measuring SAR o international requirements. This service enhances UltraTech's capabilities to test and measure the full spectrum of wireless devices for Canadian, European and U.S. markets.
Telecommunications test facility allows all telecommunication devices such as telephones, modems, fax machines, key telephones systems, ISDN and T1 digital systems, to be tested to Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada and FCC requirements.
Product Safety Test Facility
UltraTech is also capable of carrying out all product safety evaluations to UL, CSA and International product safety standards. Our close affiliations with UL Canada and Entela Canada allows CB report testing to be carried out under one roof resulting in faster turnaround times and a fully coordinated compliance program.
