It makes testing quick, easy, and extremely accurate, and it’s ideal for all types of users from corporate to professional test laboratories . This user-friendly software package features conducted immunity, radiated susceptibility and emissions tests . It automatically performs both calibration and immunity testing and is compliant for IEC-61000-4-3 radiated immunity and IEC-61000-4-6 conducted immunity, MIL STD 461/462, RS103, CS114, RE102, automotive standards, and RTCA/ DO160 Section 20 specifications .

Equipment Management

The Equipment List Manager is a built-in tool that allows equipment to be entered one time and then accessed from all tests . The Equipment Manager also keeps track of calibration dates and can warn the user when the calibration date of a specific piece of equipment is approaching .

EUT Monitoring 

Now you can achieve complete EUT monitoring and control by using custom equipment (in conjunction with dynamic link library [dll’s] files) or an NI DAQ card. It makes everything easier.

Instrument Drivers 

An extensive equipment driver library is installed with the software . Drivers can also be created and imported by the user in the form of dynamic link library(dll’s)files . The software can communicate with equipment through GPIB, RS-232 and
USB remote interfaces .

Signal Routing

Automatic signal routing can be implemented through the use of up to two AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation Model SC1000 System Controllers, enabling single-test bandwidth from
10 kHz – 18 GHz and beyond .

User Security Levels

Define equipment and test set-ups as a System Administrator, then change the security level to Restricted User to ensure secure testing .


Extensive report generation capability is built in, using Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel .

Help File

Included with the software is a detailed help utility with tutorials and a searchable index .

The AR Brainlink® System

Together with the SC1000 System Controller, the emcware forms the "Brain" of AR's innovative Brainlink System which controls and coordinates multiple components of complete test systems. With Brainlink, users can conduct a series of tests with the push of a single button.
