Preparing for Automotive Emissions Testing.

There are several significant differences between ES-XW7T-1A278-AC and its predecessor the well  known ES-XW7T-1A278-AB. The requirements of the new ‘AC’ Standard have been developed to assure compliance of the Ford range with national and international requirements. In addition, it helps to ensure  customer satisfaction regarding the EMC of vehicle Electrical/Electronic systems.


Suppliers testing to the requirements of the AB and AC Standards can depend on the  knowledgeable and experienced engineers at 3C Test to provide technical help and advice on any aspects of the Standard variations.
