Danfoss Power Electronics designs and manufactures inverters and power conversion equipment for industrial applications that requir anywhere from 90kW to multi-mega watt solutions. They recently joined forces with LS Research to perform a series of EMC Tests to qualify their latest Programmable Motor Drive Systems for the global market. These drives range from 90kW to 560kW.
“LS Research had the expertise to provide support and consulting during the development stage of the test plan and they accommodated the highly compressed test scheduling needs for Danfoss. LS Research was able to maximize the available calendar time and gain turn-around efficiencies by performing tests on our samples for continuous 16 hour sessions.
LS Research has a team that is technically qualified, experienced, and very ‘tight’ as a group. They work well with each other. Their data handling and communication processes are second to none. I routinely had draft reports, ready for review on the same day the test was performed. This allowed for a very quick turnaround in generating the final reports to support our targeted completion dates.”
-Abtin Spantman, RF/EMC Engineer, Danfoss Power Electronics
The Technical Challenge
Qualifying the family of products required numerous configurations to be tested, along with multiple operating modes and various available options to fully evaluate the end-product offering. LS Research was selected by Danfoss to test the latest Motor Drive System because of LS Research’s capability, accreditations, reputation and experience in testing motor drives.
For over 20 years LS Research has been providing compliance expertise to industrial markets assisting in the investigation of appropriate test standards, test plan development, troubleshooting/failure analysis, documentation review, and testing for EMC, FCC, Industry Canada, European Union, Australia, Japan, South America and other international countries certifications. As an FCC listed and Industry Canada recognized test site and Conformity Assessment Notified Body for the EMC and R&TTE Directive, with an ISO 1025 Accredited Test Laboratory, LS Research brings both the knowledge and toolsets required for a successful compliance testing engagement.
