5G Testing

Specialists in testing the latest technology devices

RN Electronics provide Radio & EMC testing of 5G infrastructure such as mmWave backhaul networks and Fixed Wireless Access points. We are accredited by the FCC for testing devices up to 231 GHz.

Positioned at the forefront of technology we work closely with clients who are developing innovative products for use in existing and future 5G networks. We offer pre-compliance testing and support for the latest technologies and compliance testing to European and worldwide standards as they continue to be developed.

We specialise in the testing of high frequency millimetre wave devices and commercial applications for mmWave products include wireless backhaul for high-speed internet connection, radio astronomy, smart meters and fixed wireless links.

Our experienced engineers understand the challenges involved with ensuring the compliance of such devices, especially as standards do not always keep up with technology. We also understand the complexities of multiple antennas and the integration of different radio technologies.

EMC Testing of Automotive Devices

VCA logoAs a VCA Technical Service and UKAS accredited testing laboratory No. 2360, we perform UNECE Regulation 10 ‘E’ mark testing for electrical sub-assemblies (ESA's) and components, as well as devices intended for aftermarket fitment.

We can offer testing for the automotive sector at greatly reduced lead times and can act on our customer’s behalf to obtain the approval certificate from the VCA, who are the designated Type Approval authority in charge with operating the system of automotive type approvals in the UK.

EMC Testing of Safety Systems for the Oil and Gas Industry

With many years EMC testing experience we have supported the oil and gas industry in achieving compliance, increasing safety and reliability.

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can cause major safety implications for the oil and gas industry.

Offshore platforms have safety systems that monitor, provide, receive and interpret signals from sensors and other integrated systems for unsafe conditions. Systems and plant will shut down in the event of unsafe conditions detected.

If these safety systems were to fail due to the presence of RF energy this could pose a substantial threat to personnel safety and add to the already hazardous industrial working environment and remote offshore location.

Safety and reliability elements are important and time to market is vital. RN Electronics can help you achieve and maintain compliance against numerous requirements and work with you on complex projects.


We can test to all of the following standards:

EMC Testing for the Aerospace Industry

Aeronautical products produced for the aerospace market could be required to meet standards such as RTCA DO-160 for civil aircraft requirements. We are able to undertake EMC tests to these standards for both the commercial and military aerospace industries.

The CAA is no longer responsible for approval of radio equipment in the UK. It now comes under 'Single European Sky' (SES) launched by the European Commission. We are able to test to standards under the Radio Equipment Directive (RED), and where necessary work with the notified body.

EMC Testing of Multimedia Equipment

Over the years we have specialised in EMC testing of multimedia products, for use within the multimedia industry. Ranging from Audio Mixing Consoles, Audio Amplifiers, and Digital Media Recorder's to Editor's and Induction loop devices. 

We have worked with consultants from the multimedia market place, to define EMC testing procedures.

RN Electronics and DTG Testing have launched a CE Marking testing partnership. Testing and certification of Digital TV and Radio Products through one service.

EMC Testing for Medical Devices

Testing of medical devices requires a more rigorous approach than other products due to the type of environment their placed into. High risk electrical and electronic medical devices can be affected by electromagnetic interference (EMI) which can lead to potential malfunctioning causing inconvenience, and even life threating situations.

RN Electronics offer a comprehensive and well equipped testing service to perform such tests, contact us to discuss the applicable EMC test standards and for advice on the requirements for EMC testing of medical devices.

EMC Testing of Military Devices

Military devices have to be able to withstand stringent test requirements. We can undertake many of the EMC tests to the defence standards, and offer RF immunity testing up to 230 GHz for military devices. Where a specific test is outside of our scope, we can normally arrange this with one our strategic partners.

Military Testing for UK

RN Electronics has the testing capabilities to test to DEF STAN 59-411 (UK defence standard). This standard requires EMC to be considered through the whole lifecycle of the project. We can also test to commercial standards for your product to avoid duplication of test programmes.

Military Testing for Europe

RN Electronics is able to test to standards under the Radio Equipment Directive (RED), and where necessary work with a notified body. We can test whether your product makes efficient use of radio spectrum necessary for the implementation of the Single European Sky EMC aspects. The 'Single European Sky' (SES) is a European Commission initiative to manage airspace in the EU.

Military Testing for USA

RN Electronics is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory No. 2360 located in the UK. We are recognised around the world for our EMC and Radio testing in Europe and North America. (FCC, Registration No: 293246).
We can provide testing to MIL STD-461. This is the US Department of Defence standard that establishes design requirements for the control of electromagnetic emission and susceptibility. We can test to MIL STD-461 revisions D, E, F and the latest revision MIL STD-461 G.

EMC Testing for the Railway/London Underground Industry

We can provide EMC testing for Railway and London Underground applications.


We are able to undertake EMC testing to the following Railway Standards:
