Elite’s automotive EMC testing team has completed the lab approval process to become the first and only approved Mazda EMC test laboratory in North America. With this new credential, Elite is ready to conduct validation testing for automotive electronics manufacturers on a wide range of Mazda vehicle electronic systems.
The scope of Elite’s approved services currently extends to testing low-voltage (12V DC) components, with plans to achieve full approval for all high-voltage testing required for electric vehicle drivetrain components.
Elite’s capabilities cover the MES PW 67602 Revision D standard, which means having methods such as the tri-plate transmission line and all the CI 290 Mazda cranking waveforms in place. In addition, the company’s radiated emissions equipment and chambers meet stringent requirements set in the Revision D standard.
To have a product tested, manufacturers can simply send their Mazda EMC test plan to Elite for review and to receive a proposal and a project start date. From there, EMC experts connect with the client’s technical team to prepare for testing in advance and ensure a successful delay-free validation project.
Mazda EMC approval adds to the long list of global automotive OEM approvals, including Ford, GM, FCA (Stellantis), Hyundai-Kia, and Jaguar Land Rover. With more EMC chambers, test equipment and qualified personnel than any other EMC lab, Elite is uniquely suited to help automotive electronics manufacturers achieve their product validation goals and deliver products to OEMs on time and with accepted test results.
