The Bureau Veritas Automotive Test Lab was recently featured in SAE International magazine. The article, “Radiated Emissions Testing Gathers Bandwidth,” was published on June 17, 2021.
The article features the lab’s recent approval from General Motors for automotive EMC testing. Jason Kanakry, the lab general manager, explains: “What that means is we're doing EMC testing – radiated immunity, radiated emissions, bulk current injection, transient immunity, and electrostatic discharge testing on behalf of General Motors to their specifications for Tier-1 automotive parts suppliers.”
Jennifer Gasparian, director of automotive for Bureau Veritas Technology North America, spoke to the opportunity BV recognized in opening a Tier 1 testing lab in Detroit. “In meeting after meeting, I was finding there's sometimes a three- to four-month lead time to get your product into an EMC lab to validate it. There's no money any manufacturer can put on reduced lead times, to be able to make their timing and get into a test lab quickly.” With the lab’s strategic Detroit location and latest Rohde & Schwarz analyzing equipment, Bureau Veritas can help meet the demand offering reduced test times and increased accuracy.
The Bureau Veritas Detroit automotive laboratory houses the latest technology for the compliance of automotive products within connected and autonomous vehicles. Services include EMC Validation, Wi-Fi RF, Bluetooth RF, Emark, GNSS and V2X Testing to help clients tackle the ever changing and complex national and international regulations.
