Our automotive EMC test equipment rentals provide short-term cost efficient testing solutions for testing to GMW3097 and many other standards. This General Motors standard applies to passenger vehicles, light, and medium duty trucks. This standard is part of a series for General Motors global EMC testing documents, GMW3091, GMW3097 and GMW3103. All testing completed for this automotive standard must also be accompanied by a test plan. This plan determines the classification of testing needed. It separates testing by emission(3.3), immunity(3.4), transients(3.5), and ESD(3.6). For automotive transient testing this standard uses ISO 7637 waveforms as a baseline with modifications, stating "The test equipment shall comply with ISO 7637-1 and ISO 7637-2". The table below lists the basic specification to which the standard references.
GMW3097bases the transient immunity test requirements around ISO 7637-2 pulses 1, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b, 4, 5a, 5b and 7. These pulses are mainly done in in accordance with ISO 7637 with minor modifications. The major difference is the number and time of the pulses. These number and times can be found in Table 18 of the standard. It provides cycle times minimum and maximum values and the number of pulses or application time. This standard also puts forth guidance on how to conduct ESD testing as well. The Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) portion of this standard references ISO 10605 for test equipment and test procedures with minor modifications. The Automotive EMC test equipment must have both an 330pF/2kΩ and 150pF/2kΩ capabilities to 30kV to test to all required levels of GMW3097. The majority of our automotive EMC test equipment rentals provides testing to both the base specifications and this standard.
For automotive EMC test equipment rentals to GMW3097 we carry the NSG 5500 and PA5480 by Teseq,and UCS200N, VDS200N, and LD200N by EM Test.The NSG 5500 and PA 5840 provide the most comprehensive testing capabilities allowing for testing to a variety of standards and all of the waveforms of ISO 7637-2. The EM Test automotive immunity products, the UCS200N, VDS200N, and LD200N can be rented individually and provide testing for individual waveform requirements, providing a cost efficient solution. The majority of our automotive rentals come with an computer with software installed providing a turnkey solution. All of our automotive immunity test equipment rentals come with an A2LA accredited calibration and free technical support. Even if the A2LA calibration is not required, it provides the assurance that the test equipment will have the same capacities and outputs as test labs.
