Product Support from Initial Design to Market Launch
Interactions between technical systems – electromagnetic compatibility is concerned with the issues that arise in this context. New electrical and electronic products enter the market every day and are expected to be highly efficient and offer a flawless performance.
Accurate planning and testing of electromagnetic compatibility in product development ensures the flawless function of electro-technical products in their environment, meaning that they are neither affected by electromagnetic disturbances in their proximity nor provoke electromagnetic interference at other products. The EMC team of experts of the steep GmbH accompanies customers in this process of product development – from the first draft up to market introduction.
The steep GmbH operates two accredited EMC centers in Bonn and Ottobrunn where testing is conducted with the latest measurement technology. The EMC centers of the steep GmbH and its own calibration laboratory are accredited by the German accreditation body (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH; DAkkS) according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. Additionally, the EMC center in Bonn is certified by the national tempest authority, the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), for the German zoning procedures.
