Automotive EMC Standards

With the rise of electrical vehicles, more emphasis is given to test standards to ensure safety and functionality from component, sub assembly and complete hevicle level. The EMC shop is supplying automotive EMC test equipment for international compliance standards such as ISO 7637 and ISO 16750-2, as well as for manufacturer specific test standards. Most test standards revolve around the conducted immunity for electrical disturbances, but also include applications for wireless RF immunity and emissions.Diagram - Typical Pulse Genrator in Automotive EMC Test Standards

  • ISO 7637-2

    The EMC Shop stocks automotive test equipment for compliance to ISO 7637-2. Buy, rent or lease turnkey test solutions with automated software for easy test setup and execution.

    ISO 7637-2 Automotive EMC Test Equipment

    Pulse 1.

    A simulation of transients due to supply disconnection from inductive loads; it applies to a DUT if as used in the vehicle, it remains connected directly in parallel with an inductive load.

    Pulse 2a.

    Simulates transients due to sudden interruption of currents in a device connected in parallel with the DUT due to the inductances of the wiring harness.

    Pulse 2b.

    Simulates transients from DC motors acting as generators after the ignition is switched off.

    Pulse 3a/3b.

    Occurs as the result of switching processes. The characteristics of this pulse are influenced by distributed capacitance and inductance of the wiring harness.

    Pulse 4.

    The voltage reduction caused by energizing the starter motor circuits of the internal combustion engines.

    Pulse 4 variants.

    Most manufacturer variations of pulse four are generally much more complicated. For example Ford requires up to four arbitrary generators with four outputs to be perfectly synchronized.

    Pulse 5.

    Simulation of a load dump transient occurring in the event of a discharged battery being disconnected while the alternator is generating charging current with other loads remaining on the alternator circuit at this moment.

    Magnetic field immunity.

    Simulates magnetic fields generated by electric motors, daytime running lamps, etc. for DUTs with magnetically sensitive devices.

    Transformer coupled sine waves.

    Sinusodial noise coupled on battery lines. Often referred to as ground shift.

    ISO 7637-2 Test Software

    3ctest Autolab allows for standard ISO 7637-2 test pulses as well as manual parameters changes for custom or manufacturer specific tests.

  • ISO 7637-3

    ISO 7637-3 applies to road vehicles fitted with nominal 12 V or 24 V electrical systems. Rent, buy or lease ISO 7637-3 Test Pulse Generators for Electrical Transient Testing on Road Vehicles. The EMC Shop specializes in automotive compliance testing.


    ISO 7637-3 defines test methods to evaluate the immunity of devices under test (DUTs) to transient pulses coupled to lines other than supply lines. The test pulses simulate both fast and slow transient disturbances caused by the switching of inductive loads and relay contact bounce.


    For transient pulses immunity, Annex B provides recommended test severity levels in line with the functional performance status classification (FPSC) principle described in ISO 7637‑1.

    ISO 7637-3 Test Methods

    • Capacitive coupling clamp (CCC) method
    • Direct capacitive coupling (DCC) method
    • Inductive coupling clamp (ICC) method

  • ISO 10605

    ISO 10605 Automotive ESD Test Equipment

    ISO 10605:2008 describes test procedures for evaluating both electronic modules on the bench and complete vehicles. It also describes a test procedure that classifies the ESD sensitivity of modules for packaging and handling. ISO 10605:2008 applies to all types of road vehicles regardless of the propulsion system (e.g. spark-ignition engine, diesel engine, electric motor).

    ISO 10605:2008 is based in part on IEC 61000-4-2 and describes vehicle-specific requirements.

    ISO 10605:2008 does not apply to pyrotechnic modules.
