Certification and Testing

Keeping up with the latest requirements for FCC, CE, UL, IC, and other electronics certifications can be overwhelming. Let us make it easier for you!

Our electronic testing services fit into five main categories

  • Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) (including 5GHz DFS testing)
  • Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
  • Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE)
  • Environmental
  • Safety

We can also manage testing for Specific Absorbtion Rate (SAR) requirements.

Our testing facilities are for electronics based products. We test them to make sure that they don't emit signals that could interfere with other electronics. We also do testing that verifies that products won't fail because of signals emitted by other electronics and that they are safe to use. For clients that need environmental testing, we offer temperature, humidity, drop, shock, and vibration testing

About VPI Laboratories

VPI Laboratories, Inc. (“VPI Labs”) is a high-end test laboratory that offers EMI/EMC emissions and immunity testing, safety testing, and certification services to manufacturers of electronic products. Formed in 2016, as a division of VPI Technology Group, VPI labs has quickly become one of the nation’s finest EMI / EMC test environments. Our two Utah locations, one in Draper and the other in Wanship, are staffed by reputable and experienced EMC testing and compliance engineers and technicians. Our convenient location allows it to easily service Utah’s rapidly growing technology industry and those of other midwestern states.

Regulatory Standards

We perform tests to satisfy the following three main regulatory standards: Federal Communications Commision (FCC), Conformité Européene (CE), and Industry Canada (IC).

Accreditations, Certifications, and Approvals

VPI Labs is in compliance with all the current national and international requirements and is accredited by the US National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) to ISO 17025 standards under Electromagnetic Compatibility and Telecommunications, which means we can perform compliance testing to domestic and international standards. VPI Labs has over 40 years of experience in regulatory compliance testing and certification.

Most of our testing is done for products in the following industries, but if you're not sure if your product fits into one of these categories, please call and consult with us.

Our testing covers current standards, but we can also check into upcoming standards.

Testing Facilities

VPI Laboratories operates out of two facilities. We perform immunity, pre-compliance, and safety testing at our facility in Draper, Utah. Formal EMI/EMC testing is performed at an Open Area Test Site (OATS) near Wanship, Utah. The Wanship Facility is in a location that experiences minimal signals from external emitters like cellular towers that might interfere with the testing.

The Draper location features a compact 3-meter anechoic chamber to conduct automated pre-compliance emissions and radiated susceptibility testing. The chamber was designed and proctored by Rohde & Schwarz in partnership with AP Americas and offers superb attenuation to ensure repeatable test results. The lab is highly equipped with Teseq (Ametek) test equipment specifically chosen due to their demonstrated expertise in the industry and world-class, state-of-the-art line of EMC testing products. In addition to our precision instrumentation, we also have a dedicated partially screened room for ESD testing.

Nestled in the beautiful Wasatch Mountains and about 30 minutes east of Salt Lake City, the Wanship location boasts two fully enclosed open areas test facilities designed for testing of equipment at distances of three and ten meters. The fully enclosed facilities are covered by a fiberglass building. There are no metal obstructions above the reference ground plane to ensure low RF reflection. The ground plane is solid metal with continuous welds at each seam. Control and measurement equipment is located in a screened room below the ground plane, and an automated metal turn table is provided which is mounted flush with the ground plane. The turntable is 12 feet in diameter and has a load rating of 4,000 pounds.
