Safety and reliability of electrical and electronic equipment used on the highway or railway are key issues concerning designers, integrators, installers and assessors working in these industries. Equipment intended for use in safety-related systems is particularly scrutinised for its immunity to electromagnetic disturbances, continuous and transient, derived form airborne and conducted sources.

In addition to the many standard features of an accredited testing laboratory, Cranage has specialist knowledge and facilities to investigate and measure the screening performance of cables, connectors, materials, assemblies and electronic modules. We work with clients to investigate sources of electromagnetic leakage and have developed application specific shielding solutions to achieve EMC. This aspect of our business is under constant development as new technologies and products continue to push the boundaries.
