MacNeillie launches EMC test chamber

A new EMC test chamber has been launched at the Blue & Amber Light Fleet Exhibition by specialist vehicle conversion company MacNeillie.

MacNeillie has invested around £500,000 in a purpose-built semi-anechoic electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) test chamber, located within its secure facility in the West Midlands. The aim of the facility is to eradicate the costs of transportation, enhance project security, reduce the risk of delay and offer customers a true one-stop-shop solution.

The facility incorporates the latest test equipment from industry leading suppliers such as Rohde & Schwarz and Amplifier Research. Customers are expected to include original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), police forces, ambulance authorities, fire and rescue services, and other government agencies.

Seminars offering an overview of MacNeillie’s new EMC chamber are scheduled to take place each day during the Blue & Amber Light event at the International Centre, Telford, which starts on June 4.

Managing director Nigel Rowley said: “The launch of our new EMC test chamber at the Blue & Amber Light Fleet exhibition marks a significant investment by MacNeillie, achieving one of our business plan’s medium term goals ahead of schedule.

“Our business model is simple, we asked ourselves – how can we improve our service to our customers? The obvious answer in these current times of austerity is to pare down conversion and integration costs. Over the past 36 months, we have worked on various initiatives to reduce costs, further improve efficiency and restructure our procurement."
