Russian certification center uses Rohde & Schwarz solution to test in-vehicle systems

April 20, 2015

The Certification Center Svyaz-Certificate in Russia is now using the Rohde & Schwarz R&S CMW500 to certify ERA-GLONASS systems in line with the TR CU 018/2011 technical guideline.

Effective January 1, 2015, all new car models introduced to the Russian market must be equipped with an automatic ERA GLONASS emergency call system. The independent Certification Center Svyaz-Certificate is the first and currently only test lab in Russia accredited to certify these systems with the well-established wideband radio communication tester from Rohde & Schwarz being the independent Russian test lab’s first choice.

Equipped with the R&S CMW-KA095 application software, the R&S CMW500 meets all requirements for testing ERA-GLONASS systems and provides reliable, reproducible tests in line with the Russian GOST R 55530 specification. In addition, the R&S CMW run sequencer software (R&S CMW-KT110) makes the test solution fully automated and especially user-friendly.
