EMC Test Chambers for Military and Avionic Applications

Panashield has designed RF Shielded Anechoic Chambers suitable for EMC testing to various standards specifically MIL STD 461E. The chamber is constructed using the Panabolt modular panel RF shielding system that provides high level RF shielding integrity.

EMC Test Chambers for Military and Avionic   Applications

MIL STD 461E specifies both the reflectivity characteristic of the RF absorber and the minimum area of the internal chamber surface to be covered. Chamber dimensions are dependant on the size of the Equipmant Under Test (EUT). The chamber lined with the truncated pyramidal absorber is also suitable for testing to RTCA DO-160.

Nominal Size:

  • 4.3 m x 3.7 m x 3.1 m high for smaller test objects
  • 6.1 m x 6.1 m x 3.7 m high for larger test objects

Frequency Range:

  • 80 MHz to 40 GHz

Standard Features:

  • Single leaf RF shielded door 1220 x 2130 mm high
  • Two connector panels 300 x 300 mm
  • Two 30 amp filters, one each for power and lighting
  • Earth/ground stud
  • Full or supervised installation

Absorber lining: 

  • 500 mm deep truncated pyramidal absorber specifically optimised for EMC low
    frequency applications.
  • Absorber on both end walls.
  • Absorber on areas of the side walls and ceiling at the EUT/ test bench end
    of the chamber
  • Absorber reflectivity:
Frequency MIL STD Specification EM24 Absorber
80 to 250 MHz - 6 dB - 8 dB
250 MHz -10 dB -22 dB
1 GHz -10 dB -38 dB
10 GHz -10 dB >-40 dB


  • Shielded control room
  • Larger RF shielded door.
  • Copper top test bench with grounding straps
  • Additional filters
  • Chamber fully lined with truncated absorber (walls and ceiling)
  • Ferrite panels with hybrid absorber (partial or full lining)

Relative Standards:

  • MIL STD 461E: RE 101, 103, 105 & RS 101, 103, 105
  • CE 101, 102, 103 & CS 101, 103, 104, 105, 109, 114, 115, 116
  • Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) DO-160 Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment; Section 20 - Radio Frequency Susceptibility (Radiated and Conducted)
