NovaStar’s LISN Calibration Capability

What is a LISN?


LISN stands for Line Impedance Stabilization Network. Basically, it’s an instrument used to measure the base radio frequencies of other devices by isolating the radio frequency of the power input of the equipment under test.


NovaStar’s Calibration laboratory can now test and calibrate LISN technology with the addition of a LISN Test Chamber, also known as a Faraday cage (named after the English scientist who invented them in 1836).   An 8’ x 8’ room inside the chamber is where technicians run tests in an electronically isolated environment.


NovaStar technicians can provide transmission, reflectance and impedance data for LISN’s from 5Hz to 3GHz. The results of the calibrations are in accordance with CISPR25:2008 specifications and performed using ANSI C63.4-2014 methods.


So if your lab requires calibration of your LISN’s, NovaStar Calibration now provides this service.  Instruments can be shipped to NovaStar or picked-up and delivered for free in southern Michigan and northern Ohio.   NovaStar provides a one week turn around to assure your LISN works accurately and is back in service quickly.
