The Multi-CE5 is a compact EMC test unit designed for testing electromagnetic immunity against pulsed and conducted interference. Demonstrating such immunity is generally a requirement for compliance with the European EMC directive, a necessary step leading to the CE mark.
The device has a modular structure and can be equipped with an internal 1-phase coupling network, a burst generator, a surge generator and a power fail generator.

For those who do not need the full suite of tests, Multi-CE5 can be supplied at lower cost with only those tests actually necessary.
Other tests can be added as required at any later date.

The Multi-CE5 excels by its compact design, simple handling and precise reproducibility of test impulses. It features a microprocessor controlled user interface and a 7” touch screen unit for ease of use. The microprocessor allows the user to execute either standard test routines or a “user defined” test sequence. A standard USB port provides the ability to print a summary of the test parameters as well as the results to an USB stick.

The software program CE-REMOTE allows full remote control of the test generator via Ethernet light guide as well as documentation and evaluation of test results, accordingly to the IEC 17025. To record definite impulses, it is equipped with an Impulse Recording Function (IRF).

Moreover all generator functions including the built-in Coupling-/Decoupling Network, may be computer controlled via the isolated optical interface

The CWG-CE5 hybrid generator, fully compliant to IEC 61000-4-5 and IEEE 587, is a combined impulse current/ impulse voltage generator that generates a standard impulse with a voltage waveform of 1.2/50µs at high-impedance load (output, RL > 100Ω) and a standard impulse with a current waveform of 8/20µs at short-circuited output. It may be used for surge testing of components and devices, as well as for galvanic coupling of surges to cable shields, Shielded enclosures and cabinets.

The capacitive Coupling-/Decoupling Network allows superimposition of the combination wave generator output to the mains voltage of the device under test. The simulation of voltage dips and voltage variations acc. to IEC 61000-4-11 can also be included as an option. Additional accessories allow the testing of immunity against both pulsed and power frequency magnetic fields according to IEC 61000-4-8 and IEC 61000-4-9.
Optionally the Multi-CE5 can include a trigger able power supply switch which allows the simulation of the voltage dips as specified in the standard IEC 61000-4-11. The variation of power supply voltage is controlled by use of an external motor driven variac. The control of
the external power source is included in the mainframe.

An Induction Coil in conjunction with the Combination Wave Generator output, is used to simulate pulsed magnetic fields according to IEC 61000-4-9. Combined with the external power source, the Induction Coil can be used to simulate power frequency magnetic fields according to IEC 61000-4-8. Additional Coupling-/Decoupling Networks covering three-phase power supply lines, DC supply lines and signal lines are also available, as well as a Capacitive Coupling Clamp for coupling to shielded interconnection lines.
