About Us

Our Approach

You could also call this heading “Our philosophy” or “Our vision.” Having worked in many large and small companies, and also contracted, everyone at SSCLabs has a good understanding of how a client – Laboratory should work together. We invite you to work with us, as a team, to help you solve your EMC problems. We believe knowledge and customer service sets us apart from others in the same industry.

Our Story

SSCLabs is a spin-off of LFResearch. A company formed with one goal: helping people solve EMC issues. After 25 years of doing this, and accumulating equipment, it was time to open a second facility.

What better location than the beautiful, business climate friendly City of Reno? Simply, none. Our laboratory is within easy reach of anywhere in the Reno/Sparks region, and almost as easy from Northern California to Utah to Arizona. Compare the relaxed atmosphere of Reno to the mayhem of other big cities: then compare the price of doing business in Reno with our international Airport, low cost hotels, excellent restaurants and entertainment for all.

In addition to the above, we are lucky to have grouped a dedicated team with a similar mindset.

Our Laboratory

Our laboratory is self contained in approximately 1800 Sq ft behind controlled access doors.

Approximately one third of the laboratory houses the Absorber lined 3m chamber which can be configured for either semi or full anechoic testing. Test instrumentation resides in a connected ante-chamber.

The majority of the remaining floor area houses a large floor ground plane with associated vertical coupling plane and a 1.8m by 3.8m elevated ground plane.

All the above locations have access to DC, 50 Hz, 60 Hz and 400 Hz single and 3-phase power.

Besides all the test equipment needed for most EMC testing, the laboratory has a work area for client use and a myriad of EMC solutions and components for EUT modification or repair.

To facilitate Radiated Emissions compliance measurements a 3m and 10m Open Area Test Site is being developed a short distance from the main Laboratory. This OATS takes advantage of the very low ambient EM environment in the area.
