​ETS-Lindgren’s EMGen RF Signal Generator offers users a convenient and economical solution for signal generation. The EMGen Module is designed to fit into the EMCenter™ Modular Test System and provides the user with a signal generator that can be used in different modes across the 9 kHz to 6 GHz frequency range.

Key Product Information

Flexible Operation​

The EMGen EMC Signal Generator can be used in Continuous Wave (CW) mode, as well as AM or pulse modulation mode.
The EMGen covers a frequency range from 9 kHz to 6 GHz and can be used for both conducted and radiated immunity tests. It has two SMA output connectors; one for low frequency output (LF) and one for high frequency output (HF).
The LF output covers the signal generator from 9 kHz to 230 MHz. It is intended for conducted immunity set-ups, like the IEC61000-4-6 or ISO11452-4 (BCI).
The HF output covers the signal generator from 80 MHz to 6 GHz and therefore can be used for radiated immunity tests like the IEC61000-4-3 and ISO11452-2 (ALSE).

Accurate Measurements

The EMGen is an accurate RF signal generator with a frequency error of less than 20 ppm and a modulation accuracy better than 2%. At the same time its output has an extremely fast response (less then 500μs) which is very important for EMC testing.
In addition, special engineering efforts have been taken to assure complete monotone behavior and prevent undesirable results at the output level. All these features make the EMGen the perfect signal generator for EMC immunity testing.

Easy to Use

The EMGen system is “Plug-and-Play”, meaning this card is automatically recognized and initialized by the EMCenter and is immediately ready to use. The user can configure and control the system by using TILE!™ Lab Management Software.​
