Our company uses the Lightning Surge Simulator installed in a shielded chamber for the reason of interference with electronic equipment not involved in testing. We need to move to a new facility where no shield chamber is available. Is there any problem when conducing surge testing with no shielding wall?NoiseKen
Normally surge testing can be with no shielding to the ambient. Compared to ESD and EFT/B testing, surge testing does not have high frequency region in the associated frequency components, thus, generating a low level of radiated fields. Strictly controlling the surge current path is rather of greater importance.
