Sicom's main anechoic chamber celebrates 5 years!

Sicom test s.r.l. is currently celebrating the 5th anniversary of the creation of its main one anechoic chamber used for measurements of EMC.
This is the fourth anechoic chamber that the Sicom laboratory uses and it is larger than all the previous ones: it is in fact a 6x6x9 meter chamber equipped with two prechambers. For Sicom it represented an important step forward and was well worth the acquisition of a new warehouse, necessary to house this important work tool.

The studies and experiments carried out with previous anechoic chambers have allowed Sicom to develop good expertise in this matter and have contributed to defining the setup solutions for the current chamber. On the other hand, Sicom has also set up rooms for other companies, including Telecom Italia, and in all cases the flexibility of the designers has made it possible to propose solutions suitable for any budget and tailored for thespecific customer need. Indeed, sometimes it was precisely the cheapest solutions that allowed us to be more daring in terms of innovation and materials, and in the end they presented exceptional performances.

The chamber which is now 5 years old has a reflective floor which makes it suitable for carrying out tests even according to the most traditional standards; and thanks to its dimensions it fully meets the requirements for both European and North American measurement environments.
In fact, smaller rooms cannot have the performance characteristics of the site (NSA, normalized site attenuation) required by the standards at the lowest frequencies. However, undersized chambers are very common and surprisingly are also used in many accredited laboratories. Among these there are some who use one site for accreditation but then carry out measurements for customers on another; in some cases the accredited site in question is an outdoor site, a solution currently not suitable for either emission or immunity measures, due to the high level of disturbances present in the environment and the laws that vThey are prohibited from emitting noise during measurements.
