NIAR Electromagnetic Effects Lab at Wichita State University

Section 15 – Magnetic Effect

Purpose of the Test

This test determines the magnetic effect of the equipment and is mainly inteded for finding or proving the closest distance to compasses or compass sensors at which that unit is allowed to be installed. This test ensures that equipment can operate properly without interference which may affect the nearby equipment, determining equipment compliance with the applicable equipment perfance standard, or assisting the installer in choosing the proper location of the equipment in the aircraft.

The tests in this section are “emissions” tests, meaning the units being tested are the “sources” of the environment.

Our facilities have full DO-160G capability for categories Y, Z, A, B, and C.
