Non-RF Immunity




The AXOS5 is an ultra-compact immunity tester that performs all the most commonly used transient immunity tests, including Surge, EFT, Dips/Interrupts and AC/Surge Magnetic Field. The simplified user interface provides quick selection of tests and test levels, and even lets you change test parameters “on the fly” while running a test.
The actual EUT power mains voltage and current are indicated in the display. Using the Electronic-Fuse function, the user can set an upper limit for EUT power mains current. This feature is useful to protect the EUT from unnecessary damage.
Whether you test to the IEC 61000 series “CE Mark” standards, the IEC 60601 Medical Device standards, or any number of telecom and product specific standards, the AXOS5 tester is your one stop test station for everything from precompliance to full compliance to product development testing.
A wide range of cost-efficient Coupling / Decoupling Networks for symmetrical and asymmetrical data- and signal-lines is available as an option.

For those who do not need the full suite of tests, AXOS5 can be supplied at lower cost with only those tests actually necessary.
Other tests can be added as required at any later date.

Key Points


  • Easy to operate with manual and automated test modes, software assisted test preparation, pre-defined test routines and visual aided test setups
  • Economic & Efficient Touch screen guarantees reduction of time and effort - Experience and know-how at a reasonable price.
  • Safe and reliable operation by using safety interlock, warning lamp and emergency stop functions
  • Voltage and current monitoring of surge impulses and EUT power provides valuable feedback to the test engineer
  • Automatic generation of test report, including test parameters, test setup and test result


Full Compliance and Pre-Compliance testing to a wide variety of transient immunity standards:

  • IEC/EN 61000-4-4 EFT / Burst
  • IEC/EN 61000-4-5 Surge
  • IEC/EN 61000-4-9 Imp Magnetic Field
  • IEC/EN 61000-4-11 AC Dip and Interrupt
  • IEC/EN 61000-4-29 DC Dip and Interrupt
  • IEC/EN 61000-6-1 Generic Residential
  • IEC/EN 61000-6-2 Generic Industrial
  • IEC/EN 60335-1 Household
  • IEC/EN 60601-1 Medical


AXOS5 can either be operated via front panel by large colour graphic interface or remotely from the PC. The easy to use menu together with the availability of predefined test routines for different standards makes testing easy and reliable, even for less frequently users.
Numerous additional functions such as external start/stop function allows easy integration of the test system also in customer specific test environments.
All the test parameters can be varied in a broad range wide above the requirements of the standards. Together with the ability of changing test parameters during test, AXOS5 is not only the ideal product for compliance and pre-compliance testing, it is useful for monitoring & debugging function during design phase as well.
A wide range of cost-efficient and user friendly coupling / decoupling networks for power lines as well as for symmetrical and asymmetrical data- and signal lines are available as options.
