ARCP-0024

Semi Anechoic 5m Chamber with a Ø2m test volume

The Model ARCP-0024 chamber is designed to comply with NSA & field uniformity per CISPR 16-1-4 Ed. 4.0, RSM per IEC 61000-4-3 and sVSWR per CISPR 16-1-4 Ed. 4.0 Clause 7. The chamber enclosure is approximately 10.65m x 6.450m x5.625m (~35’ 0” x 21’-2” x 18’-6” outside dimensions) with a usable nominal internal clear space of 10.04m x 5.35m x 5.13m (34’-2” x 17’-7” x 16’-10”) and is constructed of pan type shielded panels. The export classification for this equipment is EAR99.

A support structure allows the chamber to carry the weight of the shield, ferrite tile absorber, HT45 hybrid absorber, doors, etc. It includes a ground plane with a Ø2.0m turntable and 1000Kg load rating, a Model BAM 4.5-P antenna mast, and a Model FCU 3.0 controller.

Comtest 5m Semi-anechoic Chamber 2.0m test volume | 1712-200 | ARCP-0024

The main purpose of a 5m semi anechoic chamber is to perform measurements of radio frequency emission and/or immunity at 5, 3 and 1m test distance. The combination of the pan-type 2mm galvanized panel system, parallel closing RF shielded doors and polystyrene hybrid absorbers on the walls and ceiling creates a high performance controlled electromagnetic environment that complies with international immunity and emission test standards.

At 3m test distance the uniform field dimension is 1,5×1,5m at 0.8m height from the floor. In the SAC5 chamber EUT’s can be tested against the following product standards for radiated immunity:

  • EN61000-4-3
  • EN61000-1
  • EN61000-2
  • CISPR14-2
  • CISPR20
  • CISPR24
  • CISPR35
  • IEC60601-1-2
  • ISO11452 (provided that a special test table is supplied)


The test volume for full compliance radiated emissions at 5m test distance is Ø2.0m. For radiated emissions EUT’s can be tested against the following EMC standards:

  • EN61000-6-3
  • EN61000-6-4
  • CISPR11
  • CISPR12
  • CISPR14-1
  • CISPR15
  • CISPR16-1-4
  • CISPR32
  • ANSI C63.4
  • ANSI C63.10
  • FCC prt 15


If required, the typical layout of a SAC5 chamber can be enhanced to comply to the following product standards:

  • ETSI TR 102-321
  • ETSI TR 102-273
  • Mil-std 461 / 464
  • RTCA-DO160
  • CISPR25
  • CISPR12
