LSR Expands Capabilities with New 5-meter EMC Chamber and Product Design Prototyping Laboratory

The 5-meter EMC testing chamber provides additional testing capabilities and throughput for LSR, which has been conducting EMC testing and certification services since 1996.

CEDARBURG, Wis., May 27, 2014 -- LS Research, a global leader in wireless product development, announces it has completed a 5,500 square foot expansion to its corporate facility in Cedarburg, WI. The expansion is highlighted by a state-of-the-art 5-meter EMC testing chamber, as well as an all-new product design prototyping laboratory.


The 5-meter EMC testing chamber provides additional testing capabilities and throughput for LSR, which has been conducting EMC testing and certification services since 1996. The new chamber, which is listed with both the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) and Industry Canada (IC), features an isolated control room with the latest technologies in test equipment, designed to improve the testing experience and effectiveness for the customer. The chamber's size and layout will also enable the testing of larger products that often times cannot be effectively tested in smaller chambers.

Long known as a strong partner in the technical design of wireless capabilities, customers are now partnering with LSR for the entire product concept and design process. With the new prototyping lab, customers will benefit from the speed of on-site rapid prototyping, casting, and CNC machined parts. Staffed by a team of passionate and experienced designers, LSR's product design services encompasses Industrial Design, Mechanical Engineering, and Prototyping disciplines.

"Our continued growth as a company is made possible through the success of our valued customers," said Bill Steinike, President of LS Research, LLC. "Our investment in the areas of EMC certification and testing, as well as our product design lab, ensures we will offer even higher levels of value, expertise, and capabilities to our customers moving forward."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
