    Chamber Shielding Measurements      

    BNN has recently commissioned a new Laboratory with necessary RF equipment (inclusive of Signal Generator, Spectrum Analyser, Dipoles, Bi conical Antennae, Magnetic Dipoles, horns, amplifiers and other accesories) to measure shielding affectiveness of anechoic chambers, shielded rooms and enclosures from 9KHz to 40GHz.

    The Shielding Effectiveness measurements are carried out in accordance with following standards:-

  • IEEE 299:2006
  • IEEE 299.1:2013
  • Mil Std 188-125-2:1999
  • BNN has already undertaken these measurements for few Government Agencies including one from DoT/TEC and private laboratories
