Narda PMM ER8000 and ER9000 EMI Receivers

Narda introduces ER8000 and ER9000 EMI test receivers

  • Narda Safety Test Solutions announces the PMM ER8000 and ER9000 EMI receivers for measuring conducted and radiated emissions from electrical and electronic equipment in EMC testing.
  • These receivers, which comply with CISPR 16-1-1 specifications, cover a frequency range of 10 Hz to 3 GHz, depending on the model.
  • The ER8000 models are housed in a non-displayed enclosure, while the ER9000 series features a touch screen.

The FFT architecture of the PMM ER8000 and PMM ER9000 digital EMI receivers allows for a frequency spectrum to be observed over a bandwidth of 15 MHz. According to the manufacturer, the FFT system enables debugging of conducted emission measurements in seconds and radiated emission measurements in less than a minute. A scan in band B between 150 kHz and 30 MHz is done in 2 seconds, and in 46 seconds in bands C (30 MHz – 300 MHz) and D (300 MHz – 1 GHz).

Both instrument families include a low distortion preamplifier and a hardware option to meet the requirements of CISPR 14-1 CA 0010 (slamming analyzer). Up to 2 W continuous input power is supported.

The ER8000/00 and ER8000/01 cover a frequency range of 9 kHz to 30 MHz and 9 kHz to 3 GHz respectively. They are equipped with an integrated line impedance stabilization network (LISN) for measurement of conducted emissions.

The ER9000/00 is specified for a frequency range of 10 Hz to 30 MHz. The frequency range of the ER9000/01 model increases to 3 GHz. These instruments have a touch screen and an on-board battery.

The ER9000 is also equipped with a second low-noise preamplifier and a continuous wave (CW) generator for self-testing, self-calibration of the instrument and components such as cables, attenuators and coupling devices. It also features a CISPR pulse generator.

The frequency band of the ER8000/00 and ER9000/00 can be upgraded at a later date to 3 GHz.
