Jaguar Land Rover unveils EMC test facility for electric vehicles – Microgrid Media

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), a subsidiary of Tata Engines since 2008, unveiled its new Next Generation Vehicle Test Center for Radio and Electrical Interference.

The car company Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) located in Gaydon, UK will ensure that future electric vehicles comply with current and future legislation. It will have quality standards for network functionality, interoperability and electronics.

With the increase in the construction of electric vehicles and the digital services that accompany them, it is important to test EMC to ensure quality, legal satisfaction and customer satisfaction.

The opening of the state-of-the-art test centre, according to Jaguar Landrover’s senior director for electronics and compliance, Peter Phillipswill contribute to achieving the overriding objective of the company.

He said, “The importance of testing our vehicles for electromagnetic compatibility cannot be underestimated. The opening of this new testing facility is an important milestone for the company, and it will play a crucial role in helping us deliver quality, legality and customer satisfaction..’

Jaguar Landrover’s aim is to meet all the requirements that must be met to provide customers with impeccable quality, to fulfill all legal prerequisites and to obtain customer approval.

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)

Electromagnetic compatibility is a crucial factor in vehicle functionality. It determines how well electrical systems and equipment perform in their electromagnetic environment. EMC limits the accidental generation, transmission, and reception of electromagnetic energy to minimize the risk of unwanted results or signals.

Unwanted results are commonly referred to as interference and can cause distortion or inaccuracy in a vehicle’s operational or guidance system.

To avoid unprecedented events, testing next generation vehicles is vitally important and should always be considered.

The new vehicle lab built by Jaguar Landrover (JLR) highlights two non-reflective compartments. The first is an electrically silent rolling roadway that allows engineers to perform comprehensive assessments of vehicles at different speeds.

The second chamber houses state-of-the-art equipment that evaluates the functionality of separate component modules such as electric motors and batteries. Additionally, specific and advanced features, as well as vehicle services, will be tested for EMC.

These include blind spot monitoring, 4G, 5G, WiFi, adaptive cruise control, GPS, Bluetooth and wireless charging capabilities. Additionally, EMC testing is a must due to the high-tech advancements, innovations, and improvements that have taken the automotive industry by storm.

The fully operational take-off of this futuristic high-tech site in Gaydon confirms the depth of Jaguar Landrover’s commitment to ensuring customers get the most sophisticated in-vehicle connectivity. When the new Range Rover Sport was launched in May, it underwent a bespoke factory testing programme.

Jaguar Landrover is accelerating the electrification of its automotive assets through its innovative and unique Reimagine strategy. This is seen through its redefinition of modern luxury through design visible through its varieties of remarkable British products.

The current Jaguar Landrover model range includes fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles, including the latest petrol and diesel engines.

Following this new installation, JLR will supply nameplates in electrical form by 2039.
