  • EMI Site Survey

    Keystone Compliance

    An EMI site survey is an independent assessment of the potential Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) risks that might interfere with an implantable electrical device such as a pacemaker or defibrillator. The assessment should be completed by a qualified and accredited independent test lab such as Keystone Compliance and in collaboration with the employer, manufacturer of the device, patient and physician. A site survey is conducted by taking various electromagnetic measurements throughout the facility. Keystone Compliance uses a broad range of industry-accepted standards and specifications to determine which electromagnetic fields exist. Following completion of the on-site survey, Keystone Compliance provides the customers with a detailed site survey report that will help identify EMI sources and zones with the potential to interact with an implantable electrical device. This information should then be shared with the physician and employer to develop an action plan to reduce potential negative effects to the patient’s health.

  • Lightning Testing and Surge Immunity Testing

    Keystone Compliance

    Keystone Compliance offers engineering services for standard and custom lightning transient immunity testing requirements and surge immunity testing requirements. Lightning testing can be completed in single-stroke, multiple-stroke and multiple-burst testing. Direct lightning testing is typically required for exterior aircraft systems. Indirect lightning testing is required for most aircraft electronics, both internal and external. Indirect lightning simulates secondary currents and voltages that travel through circuitry and cabling. The testing is also referred to as a surge immunity test.

  • Ingress Protection – Dripping Water Tests (IPX1 and IPX2)

    Keystone Compliance

    Ingress protection testing tests the level of protection an enclosure provides against intrusions. One such set of ingress protection tests is called the dripping water test. These tests are numbered IPX1 or IPX2. The first digit, represented by the “X”, ranges from 0 to 6 and specifies the protection from solid particles. The second digit, in the case of the dripping water ingress protection test, would always be either a 1 or a 2.

  • Ingress Protection: Dust Protected and Dust Tight (IP5X & IP6X)

    Keystone Compliance

    Ingress protection testing tests the level of protection an enclosure provides against intrusions. Two such sets of ingress protection tests involve exposing the equipment under test (EUT), to dust. These tests are numbered IP5X and IP6X. The first digit, in the case of dust protected, would always be a 5, and in the case of dust tight, would always be a 6. The first digit, represented by the “X”, ranges from 0 to 9 and specifies the protection from liquid.

  • Ingress Protection: High-Temperature and High-Pressure Water Jets Tests (IPX9)

    Keystone Compliance

    Ingress protection testing tests the level of protection an enclosure provides against intrusions. One such set of ingress protection tests involves exposing the equipment under test (EUT), to high-pressure and high-temperature water jets. These tests are numbered IPX9. The first digit, represented by the “X”, ranges from 0 to 6 and specifies the protection from solid particles. The second digit, in the case of the high-pressure and high temperature water jets ingress protection test, would always be a 9.

  • Ingress Protection: Immersion Water Tests (IPX7 and IPX8)

    Keystone Compliance

    Ingress protection testing tests the level of protection an enclosure provides against intrusions. One such set of ingress protection tests involves immersing the equipment under test (EUT), in water. These tests are numbered IPX7 and IPX8.

The second digit, in the case of the immersion ingress protection test, would always be a 7 or an 8.

  • Ingress Protection: Spraying Water and Splashing Water (IPX3 & IPX4)

    Keystone Compliance

    Ingress protection testing tests the level of protection an enclosure provides against intrusions. Two such sets of ingress protection tests involve exposing the equipment under test (EUT), to spraying water and splashing water. These tests are numbered IPX3 and IPX4. The first digit, represented by the “X”, ranges from 0 to 6 and specifies the protection from solid particles. The second digit, in the case of spraying water, would always be a 3, and in the case of splashing water, would always be a 4.

  • Ingress Protection Testing, aka IP Code Testing

    Keystone Compliance

    Ingress protection testing tests the level of protection an enclosure provides against intrusions. Intrusions can be defined as body parts, water, dust and other foreign objects. The IP Code, also known as the International Protection Marking, rates the degree of protection that the enclosure provides. The IP Code has two digits. The first digit is the protection from solid particles and the second digit is the protection from liquids.

  • Ingress Protection: Water Jets and Powerful Water Jets Tests (IPX5 & IPX6)

    Keystone Compliance

    Ingress protection testing tests the level of protection an enclosure provides against intrusions. Two such sets of ingress protection tests involve exposing the equipment under test (EUT), to water jets and powerful water jets. These tests are numbered IPX5 and IPX6.

  • Electromagnetic Pulse

    EMP - Keystone Compliance

    An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is a short burst of electromagnetic energy that can be extremely damaging to electronic equipment. EMP energy can be transferred in the form of electromagnetic radiation, an electric field, electrical conduction or a magnetic field. Since EMPs have a short duration, their impact can occur across large ranges of frequencies. EMPs can be produced naturally, occur from man-made equipment. Natural EMPs include lightning strikes and electrostatic discharges (ESD), geomagnetic storms/coronal mass ejections of solar origin. Man-made EMPs include power line surges, pulses created by ignition systems, nuclear electromagnetic pulses (NEMP) and non-nuclear electromagnetic pulses (NNEMP).
